Both Lucas Matthysse and Manny Pacquiao appear to have made weight without any serious issues and look to be in excellent shape. Each fighter appeared confident and relaxed during the weigh-in and shook hands afterwards as opposed to engaging in the customary stare-down.
The vibe was quite the opposite as far as the weigh-in for Muhammad Waseem and Moruti
Mthalane. Things got a bit testy as Waseem and Mthalane (as well as their camps) pointed fingers at each other and engaged in some trash-talking following an intense face-off.
Based on the stare-down alone, both Waseem and Mthalane mean business.
