Watch LAS VEGAS — Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao vs Jessie Vargas Live PPV Boxing Fight weigh-in live stream. Boxing legend Packman came to the scale inside the Encore Theater at The Wynn resort on Friday and drank in the cheers of “Manny! Manny!” from his fans as he easily made weight. Pacquiao weighed 144.8 pounds, well inside the 147-pound limit for his fight against welterweight world titleholder Jessie Vargas, whom he faces on Saturday (Top Rank PPV, 9 p.m. ET) at the Thomas & Mack Center. Manny Pacquiao vs Jessie Vargas weigh-in live stream.
There was no animosity at all on Vargas’ part. It reminded me a lot of how Joshua Clottey acted during his weigh-in for his fight against Pacquiao in 2010. Clottey looked like he was just pleased to be getting the fight.
The size difference between the 5’10” Vargas and 5’5” Pacquiao was HUGE to say the least. Vargas looked like he belonged in another weight class altogether despite the fact that he only weighed in a little more than Pacquiao. Vargas’ five inch height and reach is going to be a problem for Pacquiao if he can’t get in punching range. Vargas wants to try and take advantage of his size in this fight to control Pacquiao from the outside. If that doesn’t work, then you can expect him to tie Pacquiao up on the inside to keep him from getting his shots off.
