Weights From NYC: Garcia 129.2 lb., Burgos 129 lb.

By Jake Donovan
Mikey Garcia and Juan Carlos Burgos are primed and ready for their 130 lb. title fight showdown Saturday evening at Madison Square Garden's The Theatre in New York City. The bout will air live on HBO's Boxing After Dark series (Saturday, 9:45PM ET).

Garcia weighed in at a ripped and lean 129.2 lb. for the first defense of the 130 lb. title he lifted from Roman Martinez last November. Burgos came in at 129 lb., in his second attempt at this same belt and third title shot overall. 

In the televised co-feature, unbeaten heavyweights Bryant Jennings and Artur Szpilka collide in what should be a fun fight for as long as it lasts. Both fighters appear to be in peak condition for the scheduled 10-round clash. Jennings (17-0, 9KO) tipped the scales at 225 lb., while Szpilka checked in at 223.6. lb.

Full card:
Mikey Garcia, 129.2 lb. v. Juan Carlos Burgos, 129 lb. - 12 rounds for Garcia's 130 lb. title
Bryant Jennings, 225 lb. v. Artur Szpilka, 223.6 lb. - 10 rounds, heavyweight
Seanie Monaghan, 175 lb. v. Matt Vanda, 173.2 lb. - 10 rounds, light heavyweight
Felix Verdejo, 134.6 lb. v. Lauro Alcantar, 135.2 lb. - 6 rounds, lightweight
Jesse Hart, 169 lb. v. Derrick Findley, 168.2 lb. - 6 rounds, super middleweight
Alberto Machado, 126.6 lb v. Nuwan Jayakody, 125.8 - 6 rounds, featherweight
Julian Rodriguez v. Neywine Muang - 4 rounds, super lightweight
Francisco Vargas v. Mack Babb - 4 rounds, super lightweight
