Adrian Hernandez and Janiel Rivera both made weight in advance of their 108 lb. title fight Saturday evening in Huixquilucan, Mexico.
Hernandez (28-2-1, 17KO) came in at the divisional limit of 108 lb. for what will serve as the fourth defense of the title he regained more than 15 months ago. Puerto Rico's Rivera came in at a trim and ready 107 lb. for his first title fight and just second overall fight in Mexico.
Their scheduled 12-round title fight airs live on Televisa in Mexico.
On the undercard, bantamweight contender Julio Ceja (25-1, 23KO) seeks his second straight win following last year's failed title bid as he faces Jesus Acosta (14-2-2, 10KO). Both fighters came in at 119 lb. for their scheduled 12-round bout. Ceja is angling for a shot at the winner of the upcoming 122 lb. title fight between Leo Santa Cruz and Cristian Mijares.
