Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum said at today’s final press conference that Friday’s weigh-in for the clash between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Brian Vera will make boxing history.

“The weigh-in is at 3PM on Friday,” said Arum, “the only weigh-in in the history of boxing where we see the fighters making weight and we REVEAL the weight [limit] for the first time at the weigh-in. Something very unique in boxing, so everybody come because it’s not the normal weigh-in.”
