Former World Super Welterweight Champion Jermell Charlo and the dangerous Jorge Cota both made weight ahead of their showdown Sunday night live on FOX PBC Fight Night live on FOX and FOX Deportes at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
Saturday’s weigh-in also featured former world champions Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux and Julio Ceja, ahead of their WBC Super Bantamweight world title eliminator, plus sensational unbeaten prospect Joey Spencer, who faces Akeem Black as a part of FOX PBC Fight Night on FOX and FOX Deportes beginning at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.
Cota replaced WBC Super Welterweight Champion Tony Harrison, who was forced to withdraw from his rematch against Charlo due to an ankle injury. Harrison and Charlo plan to have their rematch later this year.
Charlo came in at 154.6 to Cota’s 154.2-pounds.
