In this TBC video we bring you the recap of Friday’s Top Rank boxing weigh-ins. With four world title fights and eight fights in all, the weigh-ins ran over an hour from start to finish. All the fighters were on weight when it came time to get on the scales, with Manny Pacquiao coming in more than two pounds lighter than the 147 pound welterweight limit. This TBC edit of the weigh-ins trims down the proceedings to roughly six minutes where the fighters are on the scales and then face to face. The weigh-ins are usually the last time the two opponents are together before they enter the ring.
