Photos: Jennings-Ortiz, Walters, Gamboa Weigh-In

By Jake Donovan

Luis Ortiz and Bryant Jennings are ripped and ready for the final HBO telecast of 2015.

While a weight limit isn't in place for the heavyweight divisions, both fighters hit the scales during Friday's weigh-in ahead of their 12-round battle Saturday evening at Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, New York.

Ortiz (23-0, 20KOs) tipped the scales at a healthy 239 lbs. for his third fight of 2015. The unbeaten southpaw from Miami by way of Cuba makes the first defense of his secondary version of the heavyweight title. His most recent performance came just two months ago, knocking out Argentina's Matias Vidondo in three rounds this past October at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The slot was orginally intended for this bout, but Jennings decided he needed a little more incentive to make it worth his while. The Philadelphia-bred heavyweight got his wish, as he comes in at a shredded 229 lbs. for his first fight since suffering his first loss versus then-World heavyweght king Wladimir Klitschko in April.

Nicholas Walters cleared a huge hurdle ahead of Saturday's showdown with Jason Sosa. Six months after being forced to vacate his featherweight titles at the scales, the unbeaten boxer from Jamaica made weight for his HBO-televised co-feature bout.

Walters weighed in at 129.5 lbs. in his first official fight at super featherweight. Camden, New Jersey native Sosa came in right at the divisional limit of 130 lbs.
