PBC on Spike TV Weights: Rodriguez 175.4, Seals 174.4

By Jake Donovan

All four TV fighters made weight for the next installment of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Spike TV, which airs live from Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.

It took the fourth fighter a couple of tries - and two extra hours - but the show offiicially goes on as planned.

Light heavyweight action is featured in both legs of the televised doubleheader. Topping the bill, Edwin Rodriguez faces unbeaten but untested Michael Seals in a scheduled 10-round affair. 

Rodriguez (27-1, 18KOs) tipped the scales at 175.4 lbs. in search of his fourth straight win since dropping a 12-round decision to then-super middleweight champ Andre Ward. Seals (19-0, 14KOs) weighed in at 174.4 lbs. in his first TV fight, which comes close to his original hometown of Mobile, Alabama. 

Opening the telecast, Thomas Williams takes on Humberto Savigne in a bout also slated for 10-rounds. 

Williams (18-1, 12KOs) weighed 174.6 lbs., looking to make it two straight following a cut-induced stoppage at the hands of former light heavyweight champ Gabriel Campillo last summer. 

Savigne - who was shocked by Craig Baker in a two-round knockout loss this past February - was initially missing in action at the weigh-in, having spent the preceding hours looking to attempt to shed the last few ounces in order to make weight. 

The Florida-based light heavyweight initially weighed 175.8 lbs. when arriving nearly one hour after the original start time. He made weight on his second official try, coming back nearly an hour later and having to strip down to his birthday suit in tipping the scales at 174.8 lbs.
