MGM Grand, Las Vegas - The weights are in for tomorrow's big HBO pay-per-view. In the main event, former three division champion Erik Morales (51-6, 35KOs) will face Marcos Maidana (29-2, 27KOs) for the vacant interim-WBA junior welterweight title. Morales, who appeared a bit drained, came in at 140-pounds on the nose. Maidana was ripped, and also came in at 140.

In the co-feature, for the vacant WBO/WBA interim-lightweights titles, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (28-1-1, 18KOs) came in at 134-pounds. Michael Katsidis (27-3, 22KOs) was also 134-pounds. Both fighters are in great shape, but Guerrero has the look of a welterweight.

Junior middleweight James Kirkland (27-0, 24KOs) came in at 158-pounds, Nobuhiro Ishida (22-6-2, 7KOs) was also 158. Kirkland is in great shape.

In a ten round welterweight bout, Jose Miguel Cotto (32-, 24KOs) came in at 147-pounds, while former champion Paulie Malignaggi (28-4, 6KOs) was also 147-pounds.

In a junior welterweight bout, Nate Campbell was 140-pounds, and undefeated prospect Danny Garcia came in at 139-pounds.

Somehow I just don't see how El Terrible is gonna handle Maidana's power punches. He'll also gas out the longer the fight goes on. I just hope he doesn't get seriously hurt. For his health, I'd rather see him retire as the legend that he is. Then maybe he can hit up Pac and enjoy a beer togeth...

Hopefully the brutal KO coming from Maidana will knock some sense into Morales and he'll retire.
