Former world champions Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga officially weighed in for their rematch on Friday at Venice Beach in California. The official weigh-in results are as follows.
Main Event: Super-Middleweights – 12 Rds.
Shane Mosley (47-9-1, with 39 Knockouts) – 159lbs. vs. Ricardo Mayorga (31-8-1, with 25 Knockouts) – 165lbs. *
(*Mayorga was seven pounds over the original contracted weight of 158lbs. According to several media outlets including Fightnews.com Mayorga will forfeit a $50,000 bonus he would have received for making the agreed contracted weight. It was questionable as to whether Mayorga, who weighed in at 173lbs. for his last fight against Andrik Saralegui last December and 172lbs for his bout with Allen Medina in September of last year would have been able to make the 158lb. contracted catch-weight since he has not fought below 160lbs. since his fight with Miguel Cotto in March 2011.)
The official weigh in for this fight took place in private. Both fighters then participated in a mock weigh-in for the public on Venice Beach.
