Miguel Cotto has a slight weight advantage heading into bout

November 13, 2009 |  3:24 pm

Miguel Cotto tipped the scales at 145 pounds and Manny Pacquiao came in at 144 pounds at the official weigh-in for Saturday's WBO welterweight bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

There was also some post weigh-in arguing between Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach and Cotto's trainer Joe Santiago. Of course, it wouldn't be a proper weigh-in without the usual verbal sparring.

We'll have more on the weigh-in soon. Check back on The Fabulous Forum for updates.
