Fight Night Boxing Weights: A List Of Unofficial Weigh-in Weights After Rehydration
The following is a resource page for all the publicly issued "rehydration" weights of the sub-heavyweight boxing divisions. Please, bookmark for future reference. I will be updating this page with regularity. I also urge all channels broadcasting boxing to do this as HBO tends to do, when they can. It is a matter of great interest amongst boxing's most hardcore fan base and one of the things HBO gets very right. The official weigh-ins are only to ensure that boxers make their requirements for maximum weight, as opposed to actually telling what their weights are when they enter the ring. Because there can be such drastic differences in such a short period of time, this is very, very relevant to the perception of the matches, both before and after. Fans see two guys weighing in at 139 and 140 pounds, then they come in the next day, dehydrated and rehydrated, and they're 144 and 151, but you'll never know to look at their boxrec.com page, at this time.
*Please note, all weights are listed in pounds.
*For a list of tales of the tapes which did NOT feature their unofficial weights, please visit this list: http://basementgymboxing.blogspot.com/2014/06/list-of-hbo-fights-which-had-no.html
*Most of these come from HBO's broadcasts, with several newer listings from Showtime, as I've never seen them done for ESPN, FS1 or NBC Sports matches. Let's hope they follow suit.
*We are updating to include names hyperlinked to the fighters' Boxrec pages and showing their official weights on the left and rehydration weights on the right. Thanks for referencing our page, and to anyone who links to us. We hope we are useful to you and thank you if you are helpful to us or even interested enough in the sport to stop by.
Viktor Postol VS Lucas Matthysse - Contested at Light Welterweight
Postol: Official: 139.5 - Unofficial: 148
Matthysse: Official: 139.5 - Unofficial: 151
Humberto Soto VS Antonio Orozco - Contested at Light Welterweight: I don't know what the specifics of this billed Light Welterweight/140-pound bout were but Soto weighed in right on the limit and Orozco weighed in within a pound. This was also slightly fuzzy as HBO's TOTT had Orozco weighing 140.5 and Boxrec had him listed at 140.75.
Soto: Official: 140 - Unofficial: 154
Orozco: Official: 140.5 - Unofficial: 154
Sergey Kovalev VS Nadjib Mohammedi - Contested at Light Heavyweight
Kovalev: Official: 174.5 - Unofficial: 183.5
Mohammedi: Official: 173 - Unofficial: 180.5
Jean Pascal VS Yunieski Gonzalez - Contested at Cruiserweight, but both considered to be campaigning at light heavyweight but it's my understanding that there was a catch-weight agreement for 178 pounds.
Pascal: Official: 178 - Unofficial: 188
Gonzalez: Official: 177.5 - Unofficial: 189
Source for catch-weight agreement: ProBoxing Fans
Oscar Valdez VS Ruben Tamayo - Contested at Super Featherweight
Oscar Valdez: Official: 127.5 - Unofficial: 135.5
Ruben Tamayo: Official: 128 - Unofficial: 138
Miguel Cotto VS Daniel Geale - Contested at the Middleweight class, but limited to a catch-weight of 158 pounds, as requested by Miguel Cotto's camp.
Cotto: Official: 153.6 - Unofficial: HBO could not get Cotto's weight, which is normal for Cotto.
Geale: Official: 157 - Unofficial: 182 - This is a noteworthy gain and Jim Lampley made special note that it was with Geale's street clothes on, but obviously still massive. Lampley guesses it's more like 175 in boxing gear but that seems a little low for the difference, to me.
Errol Spence Junior VS Phil Lo Greco - Contested technically at Light Middleweight. Spence is assumed to be a welterweight prospect though often fights just above the limit. Lo Greco is thought to be a Light Middleweight fighter, but was called on short notice (3 days). This was a PBC broadcast TOTT.
Spence: Official: 149 - Unofficial: 162
Lo Greco: Official: 152 - Unofficial: 164
Terrell Gausha VS Luis Grajeda - Contested at Light Middleweight: While Gausha came in technically at light middleweight, Grajeda was technically two pounds into the middleweight range, and is listed as a middleweight fighter.
(PBC on NBC Broadcast)
Gausha: Official: 154 - Unofficial: 169
Grajeda: Official: 156 - Unofficial: 167
Alfredo Angulo VS Delray Raines - Contested at (unknown agreement on the limit, Raines coming in at the Middleweight limit, Angulo coming in a few pounds over it)
(PBC card, NBC+NBC Sports split broadcast)
Angulo: Official: 162.2 - Unofficial: 176.4
Raines: Official: 160 - Unofficial: 172.8
Robert Guerrero VS Aaron Martinez - Contested at Welterweight

Roman Gonzalez VS Edgar Sosa - Contested at Flyweight
Gonzalez: Official: 111 - Unofficial: 124

Golovkin: Official: 159 - Unofficial: 170
Monroe Junior: Official: 160 - Unofficial: 172

Ali: Official: 146.75 - Unofficial: 153
Santana: Official: 146.5 - Unofficial: 167
Danny Garcia VS Lamont Peters - Contested at Welterweight, with a catch-weight limit imposed, 143 pounds, although BOTH fighters were holding major Light Welterweight titles, neither of which could be on the line, unfortunately. While Peterson held a major title at 140/Light Welterweight, Garcia was regarded to be the lineal champion of the division. The rehydration weights were said by commentator Kenny Rice to be "with clothes" so I am assuming this means in full street clothes, as opposed to how they'd be walking to the ring, shirtless, in trunks, etc.
Garicia: Official: 142.25 - Unofficial: 157
Peterson: Official: 143 - Unofficial: 165
Sergey Kovalev VS Jean Pascal - Contested at Light Heavyweight
Kovalev: Official: 174.25 - Unofficial: 189

Sadam Ali VS Luis Carlos Abregu - Contested at Welterweight
Gennady Golovkin VS Marco Antonio Rubio - Contested at Middleweight, with Rubio failing to make weight and accepting a purse cut to stay at 161.75 (to be 100% precise, Jim Lampley says 161.8), even stripped completely naked at the weigh-in.

Terence Crawford VS Breidis Prescott - Contested at Light Welterweight
Lucas Matthysse VS Mike Dallas Junior - Contested at Light Welterweight
Matthysse: 163.5 ***Lucas implies this is Showtime error, ten pounds up, and he was really 153 pounds in interview with Tha Boxing Voice. This would be consistent with his other weigh-ins. He implied only a comfort in making weight.***
