Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City - The weights are in for Saturday's big light heavyweight rematch at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. WBC champion Bernard Hopkins (52-5-2, 32KOs) weighed in at 173.5-pounds, while challenger and former beltholder Chad Dawson (30-1, 17KOs) was 174.5. Both boxers appeared to be in tremendous shape.

Whatever any of you do don't bet "Slindee33" on this fight because he will gank you on your points like he did me.
