Chavez Jr. Vs. Martinez Weigh-In Results: Martinez 159, Chavez Jr. 158

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Sergio Martinez hit the scales in Las Vegas tonight ahead of tomorrow night's HBO pay-per-view main event. The two have developed quite the rivalry since the bout was announced and surprised the boxing world.

Martinez checked in at 159 pounds while Chavez was at 158.

The crowd at the weigh-in was solidly behind the young Mexican superstar, cheering him on and booing Martinez loudly. The two engaged in a staredown after making weight and talked a little trash, but there was no shoving or anything extra that could have been an issue.

The fight tomorrow should be a good one, with odds close to a pick 'em and two talented fighters with styles that could turn out to be quite complimentary of each other. We could even be looking at a fight of the year level clash.
