Weights: Erik Morales 140-Pounds, Marcos Maidana 140

By Rick Reeno

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…

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

This is an easy ko win for Maidana, did anyone at all see Morales's last fight?
