FANS queued for hours to get into the MGM Grand Garden Arena to witness Floyd Mayweather step on the scales for his rematch with Marcos Maidana. Showbiz oozed from the stage as rappers, dancing girls, and a line of world boxing champions kept the fans amused.
But in the end, it was just a weigh-in. Maidana tipped the scales at 146 ½ pounds, and Mayweather – looking typically ripped and ready – came in at 146.
Mayweather dutifully thanked his loyal army of supporters afterwards, managing to inject his gratitude into every answer he uttered from Showtime’s Jim Gray’s questioning. Maidana, fleshier than his rival, kept his fans happy by looking typically psychotic.
