The fighters involved in two RING championship bouts weighed in on Friday. Danny Garcia and Zab Judah made weight for their 140-pound championship in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Saturday, and Sergio Martinez and Martin Murray made weight for their 160-pound title bout in Buenos Aires, Argentina, also on Saturday.
Peter Quillin and Fernando Guerrero, who make up the co-featured bout to Garcia-Judah, missed weight for their WBO middleweight title bout on their first try but then made weight after one hour.
Garcia, who defends his RING, WBC and WBA title belts against Judah on Saturday at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, weighed 139.8 pounds. Judah came in at the division limit of 140 pounds (after shedding his underwear and socks) for the Showtime-televised main event.
Quillin and Guerrero, who make up the co-featured bout to Showtime’s broadcast, did not make weight on their first try. Quillin weighed 161.5, a pound and half over the middleweight limit. Guerrero weighed .4 pounds over the limit. Both took one hour to shed the extra weight and came in at 160 pounds.
Martinez, who defends his RING and WBC titles in his native Argentina, weighed 159.4 pounds for his HBO-televised fight against Murray, who weighed 159.6.
Former titleholders Amir Khan and Julio Diaz made weigh for their 143-pound catchweight bout that takes place in Sheffield, England, on Saturday. Khan weighed 142.2 pounds for the fight, which will air on Showtime (after the Garcia-Judah broadcast), while Diaz tipped the scales at 142.3 pounds.
