Hard-hitting contender David Lemieux hit the scales at 160lbs, although they had to weigh in twice due to a mob of people on stage.
For a time, there was some confusion, which eventually got ironed out, and the Golden Boy star is good to go for this weekend’s clash.
Opponent and former WBO titleholder Hassan N’Dam had no problems when he took center stage as the Gary Hyde-managed Frenchman came in at a relatively light 158.6lbs (pictures by Golden Boy).
The contest’s victor will be the new owner of Jermain Taylor’s ex-championship and be right in the mix for unification in the forthcoming months.
In the co-feature, Jerry Belmontes weighed 134.4lbs, while Dierry Jean scaled 135lbs for their anticipated lightweight encounter.
This Saturday night, both fights are live on FOX Sports 2 and FOX Deportes.
