Manny Pacquiao weighed in at a trim 146 pounds Saturday for his showdown with World Boxing Association welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse, who also made weight at 146.7 pounds.

The legendary Filipino eight-division champion and the Argentinian known as a knockout specialist were comfortably below the 147-pound limit when they stepped on a scale ahead of Sunday's bout, dubbed the "fight of champions."
