Weights: Floyd Mayweather Jr. 151, Miguel Cotto 154

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - The stage is set for Saturday night. In the HBO pay-per-view main event, for the WBA junior middleweight title, champion Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30KOs) came in at 154-pounds at the limit. Floyd "Money" Mayweather (42-0, 26KOs) weighed 151-pounds.

Youth vs. Experience - WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez weighed in at 154-pounds at the limit. "Sugar" Shane Mosley came in at 154.5-pounds. Mosley has one hour to shed off the pound and that shouldn't be a problem.

In a welterweight bout, former champion Steve Forbes came in at 146.5-pounds, and undefeated Jessie Vargas weighed 146 even.

In a bout for the vacant NABO junior middleweight championship, Carlos Quintana weighed in at 154-pounds at the limit, while Deandre Latimore was 154.5-pounds. The fight is contracted for a weight max of 155-pounds, so there are no issues with Latimore's half pound over the limit.

Some of the fighters introduced on stage include Danny Garcia, Devon Alexander, Humberto Gonzalez, Paulie Malignaggi, Adrien Broner, Abner Mares, Danny Jacobs, Seth Mitchell and Bernard Hopkins.
