Earlier today in Macau saw the weigh ins for tomorrows show at the Venetian, Macau. The most notable of the fighters being weighed were Ik Yang (19-0-0-1, 14) and Cesar Rene Cuenca (47-0-0-2, 2), who will be fighting tomorrow for the IBF Light Welterweight title.
On the scales Yang was the slightly heavier man, weighing in at 139¾lbs, around ¼lbs lighter than he was in his last two fights. The charismatic Chinese slugger didn't looked ripped but certainly didn't look bad either, and appears to have full filled into a solid looking Light Welterweight.
Cuenca was 139½lbs on the scales a similar weight to what he's been through out his his long career. The Argentinian veteran has never been lower than 137¼lbs, which he was in 2009, and never higher than 141¾, which he weighed in at in 2008.
The two men will fight in the main event of "Victory at the Venetian", the show will be televised internationally with Boxnation, in the UK, being one of the major broadcasters. Other parts of the card will be streamed live, and free, over Top Rank's own streaming service http://www.toprank.tv.
