Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada - The weights are in for tomorrow's Showtime televised lightweight title clash. The first boxer to step on the scale was the challenger, Brandon Rios (26-0, 19KOS), and he weighed in at 134.5-pounds.  WBA champion Miguel Acosta (28-3, 22KOs) stepped second. He was shredded and looked very strong. Acosta's weight was identical to Rios, at 134.5-pounds. Photos by Chris Farina/Top Rank

Rios looks sucked up. I hope he gets laid out. He's got a big mouth, not respectful or humble at all.

Hope Rios gets KTFO! This kid has no dam charisma. He likes to act like he is above everyone. Karma is a beatch
