Amir Mansour 225.5, Steve Cunningham 206

Unbeaten heavyweight Amir Mansour weighted 225.5 compared to 206 for former RING cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham a day ahead of their headliner on Friday in Philadelphia, part of NBC Sports Network's Fight Night program.

Cunningham (26-6, 12 knockouts) is coming off December's unanimous decision over Manuel Quezada, which followed back-to-back losses against Tyson Fury and Tomasz Adamek. Cunningham is 2-4 in his past six fights.

A 41-year-old southpaw from Wilmington, Del., Mansour (20-0, 15 KOs) has won four of his past five fights by stoppage and was last in the ring for a seventh-round stoppage of Kelvin Price in December.

For the middleweight co-feature, Curtis Stevens (26-4, 19 KOs) and Tureano Johnson (14-0, 10 KOs) were at 162.8 and 162.2, respectively.

Stevens is coming off January's 46-second stoppage of Patrick Majewski to rebound from November's eighth-round stoppage loss to WBA 160-pound titleholder Gennady Golovkin. Johnson was last in the ring for a unanimous decision over Willie Fortune in February 2013 and will be fighting in his first 10-rounder.

Chicago-based Mike Lee (11-0, 6 KOs) and rival Peter Lewison (6-0, 5 KOs) weighed 179.3 and 180.4, with the 26-year-old Lee having last been in the ring for a unanimous decision over Paul Harness in September 2012. Lee will face a tough task in Lewison, who was last in the ring for a majority decision victory over Mike Sawyer in October 2013.

Also, Cuban light heavyweight Sullivan Barrera (10-0, 6 KOs) and Larry Pryor (7-8, 4 KOs) weighed 176 each, and junior lightweight Edner Cherry (31-6-2, 17 KOs) and Robert Osiobe (14-8-4, 6 KOs) were 134.1 and 134.3.

Cherry is returning to action for the first time since February 2013, when he stopped Vicente Escobedo in the sixth round.
