Photos: Mike Alvarado, Mikaela Mayer Ready For Omaha Bouts

Following Friday's weigh-in, Terence "Bud" Crawford and Jose Benavidez Jr. had to be separated at the weigh-in. The trash talk led to Crawford (33-0, 24 KOs) being shoved, and then throwing a punch at the WBO welterweight world title challenger Benavidez (27-0, 18 KOs) - as they collide on Saturday at the CHI Health Center Omaha (ESPN and ESPN Deportes, 10:30 p.m. ET).

I hope Vanessa Bradford gives Mayer some rounds. She looks ready and has been training really hard we'll see.

Not sure if true or not but people were saying Alvarado was on crack a while back. Good to see him staying active even if he isn't likely sniffing a world title anytime soon.
