At this morning’s weigh-in in advance of Saturday’s championship fight at Palenque de Gallos in Chiapas, Mexico, between interim WBA super featherweight champion Emanuel Lopez (18-4-1, 7 KOs) and Rolando Giono (17-5, 11 KOs), both fighters made weight.

Lopez tipped the scales at 130 pounds on his first attempt.

Things went a less smoothly for Giono, who came in at 130.7 pounds, a little over the super featherweight limit.

He was given time to lose the extra weight, which he did successfully.

The title fight will go on as scheduled.

Rafael Ramos will be the third man in the ring.

The three judges are Raul Caiz Sr., Raul Caiz Jr., and Carlos Sucre.

The supervisor is Miguel Prado.
