Amir Khan and Zab Judah hit the scales this evening in Las Vegas in preparation of their HBO clash tomorrow night. Both men weighed in at the targeted 140 pounds so their junior welterweight title bout is a go. There were no real fireworks or any other unexpected behavior at the weigh-in but both men looked ready for what should be a terrific bout.
Other weigh in results included Peter Qulinin and Jason LeHoullier both weighing in at 161, Gary Russell weighing 126 for his bout with Eric Estrada who checked in at 128. Finally James Kirkland and Alexis Hloros both tipped the scales at 157.5.
One other note of interest for boxing fans from the weigh-ins that speaks to future fights comes courtesy of Dan Rafael's twitter:
Had a chance to talk to Jorge Linares. Really wants fight DeMarco, which is possible for a vacant 135 belt.
