Weights: Andre Ward, Chad Dawson Both Come in at 168

By Rick Reeno

Oakland, California - The weights are in for tomorrow's big doubleheader. WBA/WBC super middleweight champion Andre Ward (25-0, 13KOs) weighed in at the 168 limit, while challenger Chad Dawson (31-1, 17KOs) was also 168-pounds on the nose. Dawson is the current WBC champion at light heavyweight and chose to move down to 168 to challenge Ward for his titles. Both fighters looked in great shape.

After they made weight, there were minor words exchanged as they came face to face.

WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (27-2-1, 20KOs) weighed in at 134.25, while challenger John Molina Jr. (24-1, 19KOs) weighed in at 134.5-pounds.

The HBO televised doubleheader takes place The Oracle in Oakland.

Really impressed by Dawson for making this weight and not coming in overweight which has been a problem with other fighters this year.
