Matthysse, Linares Make Weight for Separate Bouts

Lucas Matthysse weighed in at the 147lb limit ahead of his matchup against unheralded and unknown former Muay Thai fighter Tewan Kiram from Thailand. Kiram came in at 146.4lbs in his first major opportunity to make a name for himself in a crowded division. An 8-1 underdog Kiram has youth and size advantages against an aging Matthysse.

Jorge Linares returns to defend his WBA and Ring Magazine titles against Mercito Gesta and weighed in at the 135lb. limit. Gesta tipped the scales at 134.8.
