Canelo 151.8lbs Hatton 149.6lbs


Hatton Canelo make the weight

Matthew Hatton and Saul Alvarez both hit the scales ahead of their vacant WBC light middleweight title fight tomorrow night.

Controversy surrounded the event in the last couple of days as brother Ricky Hatton declared he would advise his brother to withdraw if Alvarez came in heavier than their 150lb contracted weight limit.

Ricky claimed he saw 'Canelo' in the gym and didn't look like he was making much effort to hit the magic number.

The fine is 30% of his purse if he comes in over the weight limit - but Ricky urged his brother to pull out if he was anymore than 150lb as agreed.

Now Alvarez has weighed in heavy as feared, there shall be a couple of hours grace for him to trim it off. But it looks very likely the fight will still proceed regardless.
