Giovani Santillan (22-0, 12 KOs), the No. 7 rated welterweight by the WBO, weighed in at 146.9 lbs., while once-beaten Dodzi Kemeh (13-1, 12 KOs) weighed 145.7 lbs. during Thursday's weigh in.
Santillan defends his NABO championship for the first time via the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif. (10-rounds).
Santillan dethroned previous NABO title holder Sammy Valentin in July via second round knockout. The San Diego southpaw is prepared to defend his newly acquired title on Friday night.

"It's a long process to get ranked and win titles," said Santillan at Thursday's weigh in. "I've worked too hard to let this opportunity slip away. I fully expect to win in great fashion Friday night."
