Alfonso Gomez v Ed Paredes: Weights/photos from the Hard Rock Hotel

Former world title challenger Alfonso Gomez weighed in for his return to the ring following injury as the Mexican prepares to battle Ed Paredes at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on Wednesday night.

The 33 year-old from Guadalajara has been out of action since losing out to current IBF welterweight title holder Shawn Porter two years ago and will hope to get his career back on track with a victory.

Opponent Paredes, 29, has put together an impressive unbeaten run since losing out over ten rounds to 154 king Carlos Molina at 147 in 2009 and will look to record a 36th career triumph in his 40th professional contest.

Also on the bill, Joseph Diaz Jr battles Ramiro Robles, whilst Diego De La Hoya will be aiming for a fifth win from six bouts since entering the paid ranks in September 2013. 

The card is a taster to the upcoming pay-per-view offering between Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara which takes place at the MGM Grand on Saturday night.

Weights from Las Vegas:

Alfonso Gomez 150.2 lbs. Ed Paredes 150 lbs.

Joseph Diaz Jr. 123.6 lbs. Ramiro Robles 124 lbs.

Diego De La Hoya 124 lbs. Miguel Tamayo 122 lbs.
