The weigh in for Saturday evening's Devon Alexander versus Lucas Matthysse took place in historic old town St. Charles, Missouri.

Former junior welterweight champion Devon Alexander was ripped and came in at 139.5 pounds. The heavy handed Lucas Matthysse weighed 140 pounds on the dot.

Rounding out the HBO televised portion of the card, IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud tipped the scales heavy at 175.25 pounds.  His opponent Yusaf Mack weighed 174.25 pounds. Cloud has two hours to lose the quarter pound.

Bermane Stiverne weighed in at 238.5 pounds while Ray Austin came in at 238 pounds. The WBC silver heavyweight championship and a mandatory shot at the winner of the Vitaly Klitschko-Tomasz Adamek clash will be at stake.

In notable off television fights IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage came in at 152.25 pounds while Sechew Powell weighed 152.5 pounds. Both fighters exchanged words during the weigh in. 

Undefeated cruiserweight contender Ryan "The Irish Outlaw" came in shredded at 193.75 pounds while his opponent David McNemar weighed in at 198 pounds.  Coyne was originally scheduled to face WBA champ Guillermo Jones who pulled out of the fight with an injury.
