Weighin results: Pacquiao 145, Mosley 147


Manny Pacquiao weighed in at 145 pounds for his WBO welterweight title defense against Shane Mosley at the official weighin for the pay-per-view fight that took place in front of thousands of fans in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the site of Saturday's showdown.

Mosley weighed in at the division limit of 147 pounds.

Pacquiao's weight was the second heaviest of his career. He weighed three-quarters of pound more for his title defense against Joshua Clottey last March, his heaviest ever.

Both future hall of famers looked ripped and ready for tomorrow night's confrontation.

"I believe Shane Mosley is a good fighter and strong fighter, so I had to train hard for this fight," Pacquiao said after the weighin.
