While the UFC 274 main event is mired in controversy over the scale accuracy and Charles Oliveira’s title-stripping weight miss, there are no such issues for Saturday’s other big combat sports main event.
Undisputed super-middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez and WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol both weighed under the 175 lbs limit for their showdown at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. While Bivol has been a career light heavyweight, this is just Alvarez’s second career appearance at LHW. His previous bout at 175 lbs saw him knock out Sergey Kovalev to win (and then vacate) the WBO title back in 2019.
You can watch the weigh-ins in the video below.
