Billed as “The One”, the battle between Floyd Money Mayweather and Saul Canelo Alvarez had their weigh in yesterday. Mayweather tipped the scale at 150.5 pounds, while Canelo weighed in at 152 pounds. But the biggest number of the day was 12,000, as there were over 12,000 fans who attended the weigh in, and many more who were unable to get in.
Doors opened at noon Western time, and I showed up around 1:30pm. At that time, they were no longer letting people in unless they were working media, as they had actually let too many people into the event. Golden Boy Promotions invited a tremendous roster of talent to the stage before the main event combatants hit the scale, including Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins, “Sugar” Shane Mosley, Austin “No Doubt” Trout, Adrien “The Problem” Broner, and many more.
The One has finally arrived, and the card will be underway in less than six hours. Who will be “The One?”
