Weights: Khan-Molina, Wilder-Price, Santa Cruz-Guevara

005WilderandPriceIMG_0128(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Scott Gilfoid: Undefeated heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder (25-0, 25 KO’s) weighed in today for his fight on Saturday night against Kelvin Price (13-0, 6 KO’s) at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. The 6’7” Wilder weighed a light 223 pounds for the vacant WBC Continental Americas heavyweight title.

The fight is scheduled for only 10 rounds, but Wilder likely won’t need half of those rounds to get the 6’7” Price out of there. The weird thing about this fight is that both Wilder and Price look in incredible shape with nothing but pure muscle.

I’m not used to seeing two in shape heavyweights because much of the time heavyweights look so badly out of shape or just have weird looking physiques. These two fighters actually look like athletes.

Earlier tonight, the 24-year-old Santa Cruz stopped the incredibly game Victor Zaleta (20-3-1, 10 KO’s) by a 9th round TKO at the Stapes Center in Los Angeles, California.

Santa Cruz knocked Zaleta down three times in the fight – the 4th, 7th and 9th rounds. The stoppage came from a hard right hand to the head of Zetala that put him down in the 9th. The two other knockdowns came from left hands to the body from Santa Cruz.

This is a big, big test for the 26-year-old Mares, as the 27-year-old Moreno is a highly skilled southpaw fighter known for his defensive skills as well as his good counter punching ability. He’s not the inside fighter that Mares is, but he’s capable of fighting well on the outside. This is a going to be a really tough fight for Mares because Moreno is completely different from the guys that Mares has been fighting up to this point. Mares has beaten guys like Vic Darchinyan, Eric Morel, and Joseph Agbeko.
