Algieri weighed in at 145.8 lbs, and Bone tipped the scales at exactly the same weight – 145.8 lbs. The bearded, well-muscled Algieri was looking fit, ripped and ready for tomorrow’s contest, which will be the main event on Showtime Extreme.
Algieri’s Star Boxing “Stablemate” Joe Smith, Jr. (19-1, 16 KOs), the knockout artist who in between fights is a local 66 laborer, also hit the scales for his light heavyweight contest against firefighter Will Rosinsky (19-2, 10 KOs). Smith weighed in at 173.4 lbs., and Rosinsky’s weight was 173.6 lbs.
