Whoever decided many years ago to open arena doors to the public for a weigh in before an anticipated fight should be highly commended. The bigger the bout, the larger the crowd and so why not treat the weigh in as a great precursor to the event itself? Such was the case this afternoon at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. All eyes will be on tomorrow night’s interesting showdown for the Ring Magazine welterweight prize between Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. and Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero. A public event such as this not only builds even larger levels of anticipation, it also allows fans who may not be fortunate enough to attend the fight a chance to see some boxing greats. Several thousand fans flocked to the MGM Grand Garden Arena and the scene was a fun one. The arena doors opened almost two hours in advance. The concession stands were open and fight fans had already began to get the beers in. Weights for the entire fight card are listed below.
