Provodnikov is coming off a split decision loss to Chris Algieri in June, a defeat that left him without the belt he had won at 140 pounds over Mike Alvarado last year. Castillo has pickd up two wins since dropping a decision to Antwone Smith in early 2013.

- Undefeated cruiserweight prospect Dmitry Kudryashov came in 199.1 pounds. Long-ago cruiserweight titleholder Juan Carlos Gomez was overweight at 203.7 pounds.



- Rakhim Chakhkiev was 199.3 pounds. Jackson Junior came in at 183.9 pounds.



- Andrey Klimov was 129.85 pounds. Gabino Cota was 129.4.

- Eduard Troyanovskiy came in at 140 pounds. Jose Augustin Feria weighed 139.8.



- Sergey Lipinets was 139.6 pounds. Ernie Sanchez came in at 140.4 ( Note: Sanchez later stepped on the scales for a second time and was 139.6 pounds)

- Egor Mekhontsev weighed 174.4 pounds. Joey Vegas was 177.25.



- Dmitry Bivol was 179 pounds. Jorge Rodriguez Olvera was 173.3.

- Sergey Kuzmin came in at 259.7 pounds. Nicolas Buule weighed 199.7.

[QUOTE=bigjavi973;15139638]What are you talking about? Hes getting ducked. Three other offers, not one response. Oh they did respond.... NOPE![/QUOTE] So that's justifiable to you? Three offers is all it takes to make a fight with the reanimated corpse of Castillo…
