On Friday afternoon, WBA welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (28-0, 22 KO’s) and contender Josesito “Riverside Rocky” Lopez (36-7, 19 KO’s) weighed in ahead of their fight. Thurman will face Lopez inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and the match will air live on FOX.

This fight marks the end of what will be nearly a two-year layoff for Thurman, who last saw action in March of 2017 when he won a unanimous decision over former champion Danny Garcia. Lopez isn’t to be taken lightly, as he has been in the ring with the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Marcos Maidana, Andre Berto, and Jessie Vargas, while holding victories over Victor Ortiz and Mike Dallas Jr.

Each man weighed 146.5 pounds and look to be in great fighting shape.
