Ricky Hatton weighed in at 139lbs, as did Juan Urango. Tomorrow night both will be closer to 160lbs. Fighters try and put on as much weight before a fight as they can. The heavier you are, the harder you can hit.
The bout is for Urango's 140lb I.B.F. Junior welter weight title. However Hatton is favored to win. Both fighters are pressure fighters. Neither like to take a step back. This should be an exciting fight. I encourage all to watch it. It might just turn you into a boxing fan.
My prediction is Hatton KO's Urango by the 8th round. Urango has a solid chance for the upset, though so it is an exciting fight.
