As seen in a post on HustleBoss.com on Friday, Dec. 13, the official weigh-in for tonight's Adrien Broner vs. Marcos Maidana event took place to great fanfare.

Broner (27-0, 22 KO's) will look for the first successful defense of his WBA welterweight title when he locks horns with the ultra-aggressive Maidana (34-3, 31 KO's) inside of the Alamodome in a Showtime attraction.

The fight is the last big showdown of what has been a memorable year for boxing fans.

Maidana hit the scales first, weighing 146.2 pounds. The camp for Maidana has been long and grueling, as he started slowly inside of the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard, Calif. before turning up the intensity more and more as the weeks passed.

Tough sparring from the likes of junior welterweight prospect Darwin Price, former world champion Steve Forbes, and Detroit's Joseph Bonas helped push Maidana to his brink.

Broner weighed in at 144.4 pounds and showed off a chiseled physique.

Coming off of victories this year over Gavin Rees and Paulie Malignaggi that saw him fight a bit flat-footed, Broner likely will look to employ a different tactic against his hard-punching foe this evening.

While facing off with one another after they weighed in, Broner could be seen trying to bait Maidana in and even motioned towards him with his hand. That act caused Maidana to slap his wrist away, as he obviously is in no mood for playing at this point.
