Alex Saucedo-Sonny Fredrickson Weigh-In Results From Las Vegas

Alex Saucedo and Sonny Fredrickson made weight Monday two months after they initially were supposed to step on the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s scale.

Saucedo officially weighed 140½ pounds for a 10-round welterweight fight ESPN will televise Tuesday night from MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas. Fredrickson came in at 140¾ pounds.

The contract weight for the Saucedo-Fredrickson fight is 141 pounds.


Saucedo (29-1, 19 KOs), of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and Fredrickson (21-2, 14 KOs), of Toledo, Ohio, first were scheduled to fight April 25 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. That card, which was to feature bantamweight champions Naoya Inoue and Johnriel Casimero in the main event, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now they’ll headline a four-fight ESPN telecast scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Earlier Monday, the Bronx’s Josue Vargas and Mexico’s Salvador Briceno made weight for their 10-round junior welterweight bout. Vargas (16-1, 9 KOs) weighed in at 140½ pounds, two more than Briceno (17-5, 11 KOs), who came in at 138¼ pounds.

ESPN’s broadcast also will include an eight-round junior welterweight bout between John Bauza (13-0, 5 KOs), of North Bergen, New Jersey, and Ireland’s Larry Fryers (11-2, 4 KOs). Bauza weighed in at 139¼ pounds, slightly more than Fryers, who was 138¾ pounds.

Donte Stubbs (6-0, 2 KOs), of Riverside, California, and Detroit’s Isiah Jones (8-2, 3 KOs) also met their contractual obligations for a six-round middleweight match ESPN will air Tuesday night.

Stubbs (6-0, 2 KOs) officially weighed 160¼ pounds. Jones stepped on the NSAC’s scale at 159¼ pounds.

Jones just lost a six-round unanimous decision to Georgian prospect Nikoloz Sikhniashvili (6-0, 4 KOs) in a fight ESPN televised June 16 from MGM Grand Conference Center.

Two fights were removed Monday from what was planned as a six-fight card Tuesday night.

Rance Ward (4-1-1, 2 KOs), of Houma, Louisiana, tested positive for COVID-19, which caused the cancelation of his six-round middleweight match with Cleveland’s Fred Wilson Jr. (6-0-2, 2 KOs).

Also, the pro debut of accomplished American amateur Javier Martinez was postponed because matchmakers couldn’t secure a suitable opponent in time. Milwaukee’s Martinez, 24, signed a promotional contract recently with Bob Arum’s Top Rank Inc.

Saucedo has no defense, not bad defence, no defence. He eats leather, walks though blizzards of punches. If Sonny comes with some skill, it'll be a hard night for Alex.
