Pacquiao Vs. Marquez Weigh-In: Manny Reportedly 143 Pounds Night Before Hitting Scales

Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez meet tomorrow night on HBO pay-per-view. The bout will be contested at 144 pounds, a weight where Manny should still have a decent size advantage. He is, however, not going to be cutting much weight today before stepping on the scales.

Boxing Scene is reporting that Manny was 143 pounds last night, putting him under the limit.

Marquez is expected to be in better shape for this fight than he was when he stepped up to a near welterweight catchweight for his bout with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. back in 2009. If he put on weight in a smart and safe way and if Manny is not pushing the weight limit for the bout it will be interesting to see just how much size comes into play.

That being said, Manny should still have a considerable advantage in terms of strength.
