Marcos Maidana of Argentina and Josesito Lopez of Riverside made weight for their welterweight main event Saturday at Home Depot Center (on Showtime). Maidana (33-3, 30 KOs) weighed the 147-pound limit while Lopez (30-5, 18 KOs) tipped the scales at 145.
The two are expected to provide what figures to be a sellout crowd of more than 8,200 with plenty of thrills. Both are hard punchers, both are looking at this as one of the most important fights of their respective careers.
The semi-main event will see Alfredo Angulo of Mexicali squaring off with Erislandy Lara of Cuba in a junior middleweight bout. Angulo (22-2, 18 KOs) weighed 153 pounds, Lara (17-1-2, 11 KOs) came in at 153.8. The limit is 154.
The main promoter is Golden Boy Promotions.
