The weigh-in for tomorrow night’s unification bout between WBA World welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (27-0, 22 KOs) and WBC World welterweight champion (and VADA enrolled) Danny “Swift” Garcia (33-0, 19 KOs) just ended.
The stare down was funny as Garcia and Thurman went nose-to-nose. Then Garcia tried to “chump” Thurman (feinting as if he was going to hit him). It didn’t work.
Thurman didn’t flinch and animated gestures from both fighters and trainers followed.
Thurman, the favorite, tipped the scales at a solid 146.8. Garcia came in at 146.5.
The World welterweight unification bout will take place tomorrow night, live on CBS.
