Jerry Belmontes and Abner Cotto made weight for their scheduled 10-round super featherweight clash Thursday evening in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Both fighters came in right at 130 lb., though Cotto had to strip down to his birthday suit after initially coming in 1/4 lb. over the limit.

The bout headlines live on Fox Sports 1. Belmontes makes his first ring appearance since nearly dethroning Omar Figueroa in their lightweight title fight this past April. Many voiced their displeasure over the final decision, though Belmontes' stock soared even in defeat.

Also included on the show (though not on the telecast), Belmontes' younger brother Steve Belmontes makes his pro debut.
