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).

Viorel Simion will be a good step up for Stevenson. He might have ring rust though, hasn't fought in 18 months...

I heard this Adames cat is a good prospect.
