PBC on FOX Weights: Caleb Plant 166.8, Vincent Feigenbutz 165.2

NASHVILLE--After a fight week filled with hotel changes, imported water, lectures on hosting decorum and threats of a St. Valentine's Day massacre, all went as normally expected on the day before any given fight night.

All participants made weight for Saturday's show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Headlining a Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Fox tripleheader which airs live beginning at 8:00pm ET and 7:00pm locally, unbeaten super middleweight champ Caleb Plant (19-0, 11KOs) attempts his second defense in a long overdue homecoming as he faces Germany's Vincent Feigenbutz (31-2, 28KOs).

Ashland City's Plant came in at a shredded 166.8 pounds for his first-ever fight in his home state, which comes 13 months into his title reign. Feigenbutz checked in at 165.2 pounds for his stateside debut, and his second bid at a major (WBA/WBC/IBF/WBO) title. The 24-year old from Karlsruhe previously held the IBO belt as well as a secondary version of the super middleweight title.

The bout marks the first title fight to land in Music City since July 1997. The occasion took place in this very same venue—then known simply as Nashville Arena—as Frankie Liles extended his own super middleweight title reign with a win over Jaffa Ballagou, while Cincinnati's Tim Austin ignited what would be a near four-year stay as bantamweight champ following a 7th round knockout of Mbulelo Botile as part of a Showtime-televised doubleheader.

In the evening's chief support, Bryant 'Goodfella' Perrella and Abel Ramos collide in a 10-round welterweight crossroads bout.

Perrella (17-2, 14KOs) aims to make it three straight, as the Ft. Myers, Florida product weighed 146.8 pounds. Arizona's Ramos (25-3-2, 19KOs) came in at a fighting fit 145.8 pounds in hopes of extending his current seven-fight win streak.

Opening the telecast, local lightweight Austin Dulay (13-1, 10KOs) squares off with former two-time title challenger Diego Magdaleno (31-3, 13KOs) in a 10-round clash at a contracted weight of 136 pounds.

The pair of southpaws were both well under the official limit. Dulay—born and raised in nearby Hendersonville—weighed 134.4 pounds for his Fox-televised debut. Las Vegas' Magdaleno also came in at 134.4 pounds, as he looks to rebound from a 7th round knockout loss last February to Teofimo Lopez, who has since captured a lightweight title.
