Canelo vs. Bivol: Weigh-in

Both fighters have been pretty respectful throughout the promotion of this fight, so I wouldn’t expect too many shenanigans at the weigh-in. Bivol has fought at 175 pounds for the duration of his career, so weight shouldn’t be an issue for him. Canelo has also fought at 175 pounds before and walks around much bigger than his normal fighting weight of 168 pounds.
