Photos/Weights: Pacquiao 143, Marquez 142, Undercard

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - The weights are in for Saturday's anticipated trilogy showdown between Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38KOs) and Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1, 39KOs). The fight takes place at a catch-weight of 144-pounds, and Pacquiao's WBO welterweight title is on the line. Photos by Chris Farina/Top Rank.

Pacquiao was shredded and weighed 143-pounds. Marquez was beefed up, with a lot of muscle, and weighed 142-pounds.

Making his Top Rank debut, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (27-0, 11KOs) was shredded and ripped up as usual, coming in at 140-pounds. Joel Casamayor (38-5-1, 22KOs) was a little dry and had to strip down. Even after stripping down, he was still one pound over, at 141-pounds, and has two hours to make the weight. Losing one pound is usually not a problem.

In a junior welterweight clash, Breidis Prescott (24-3, 19KOs) weighed in at the limit of 140-pounds. Undefeated Mike Alvarado (31-0, 22KOs) was in top form as well, also coming in at 140.

The first boxers to step on scale, were junior lightweights. Juan Carlos Burgos (27-1, 19KOs) came in at 129-pounds, while Luis Cruz (19-0, 15KOs) came in at the limit of 130-pounds. Burgos vs. Cruz opens up the live HBO pay-per-view card.

Undefeated Top Rank prospect Jose Benavidez Jr. came in at 141-pounds, and Sammy Santana was 140. The untelevised fight is scheduled for six rounds of action.

[QUOTE=WESS;11407489]Exactly the point. Pac and JMM are the same size. This fight should not be a WW fight. Neither could even make the CW of 144. It could have easily been between LW and JWW. Which is why the majority…

[QUOTE=WESS;11407388]The problem is, this is what people bash Floyd for. I.E. Ricky Hatton. Everyone wanted the fight and Hatton was a JWW undefeated and undisputed Champion, Floyd was bashed because he didn't accommodate Ricky and fight at JWW even though…

[QUOTE=tatangb45;11406909]Marquez has always been the guy who was running after Pac since their last fight, and not the other way around. He is guaranteed $5m for this., his biggest paycheck ever. It is his misfortune that to get this, he…

[QUOTE=WESS;11407004]They COULD have fought between LW and JWW as Pac couldn't even make 144. It's funny how people are making it sound is if Pac is this big WW now. Is he big or small? Bottom line they are the…
