Amidst a fight week for a show that lost its original main event, everything else has since gone right—including the remaining boxers on the card doing their part at the scales.
All participants made weight for Saturday's ESPN+ livestreamed event from Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pa. Headlining the card, former 126-pound titlist Jason Sosa takes on Haskell Lydell Rhodes in a 10-round bout.
