WBC-mandated 30-day weigh-in between Pacman and Morales

The WBC-mandated 30-day weigh-in prior to the November 18 rubber match between Manny Pacquiao and Erik Morales occurred over the weekend. In front of a large crowd in Mexico City, Morales tipped the scales at 142 lbs. Pacquiao, who weighed in at his trainer Freddie Roach's Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, Calif., came in at 138¾ lbs.

Roach was present at both weigh-ins, and true to form he had something to say.

Freddie Roach"My goodness. I have never seen so many people surround one man to make sure he eats so little," was Freddie's comment, comparing his old school techniques to the new school techniques of the team of experts from Velocity Sports Performance Center surrounding El Terrible.

"That was no weigh-in,� said Roach. “It was a Weight Watchers meeting. I don't know what Velocity has on his menu, but I guarantee you on November 18, Manny will be serving Erik a steady diet of Reyes leather all night long until he can eat no more."

Pacquiao-Morales III will be promoted by Top Rank, in association with Wynn Las Vegas, and will be on Saturday, November 18, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV, and broadcast live on HBO Pay-Per-View. Read more at the BLOG
