Pacquiao Vs. Marquez Weigh-Ins: Marquez Weighs In At 142 Pounds

Juan Manuel Marquez will be stepping up in weight considerably to take on Manny Pacquiao for the third time in his career. Marquez, the lightweight king, has battled Pacquiao to a hotly disputed draw and a split decision loss in their first two meetings. Many observers, including myself, scored the first two bouts for Marquez.

In Las Vegas the two men hit the scales to make the bout official. The official weight limit was a 144 pound catchweight despite Pacquiao's welterweight (147 pound) title being on the line.

Marquez's official weight was 142 pounds.

He looked much better at the weight than his previous welterweight attempt against Floyd Mayweather, Jr. when he looked somewhat unhealthy at the higher weight. Marquez was very muscular and healthy looking. We'll see what that means tomorrow night.
