What time does the weigh-in start?

ALVAREZ has made no secret of his physique change and is noticeably larger than in his last fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

The bout sees the WBA, WBC, IBF and The Ring belts put on the line.

The weigh-in for Saturday’s Las Vegas showdown begins on Friday afternoon, 3:30pm ET.

What happens when you miss the weight in boxing?

The weight the fighters are expected to fight at is determined in the contract that both fighters sign.

At the weigh-in, both boxers are expected to fit within the specific parameters as stipulated in the contract.

Each weight division in the sport of boxing has a maximum weight for each class.

So, for example, cruiserweights can't weigh any more than 200lbs and the welterweight limit is 147lbs.

If a boxer fails to make the agreed weight at the weigh-in, any titles that he/she was fighting for could be pulled from the contest. The fight itself could be shelved, but this is not normally done.

The agreed weight is done to try and ensure there is not a huge weight difference in the actual fight.

Should the boxer fail the make the weight, he will not be able to win the title - meaning if it is the champ he will be stripped of his belt and only his opponent can win it.
