What Do Welterweights Rehydrate To? An Unofficial Weight Reference List
The following is a list compiled from our main page:
Fight Night Boxing Weights: A List Of Unofficial Weigh-in Weights After Rehydration
Please note: This particular reference list page is only for Welterweights fighting without catch-weights, that we have on file. Where we have seen catch-weights implemented within the Welterweight range, we have made note. This page is meant to answer the question only of what your standard Welterweight rehydration will look like for educational purposes, whether you are interested academically or for betting purposes, debate, whatever. I hope you find it helpful if you've recently done a search for it. If you like what we do here, please bookmark, share, link to us, comment, etc. If you have a correction on any typos or special, relevant information you feel we should make note of, any error or anything at all, please feel free to comment. What we get the most response to we will likely work the most to expand on. Thanks for your visit.
Welterweight Division: 147 lbs
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. This is listed on our welterweights page because of Spence Junior's status as a welterweight fighter, so that you do not miss his listings, as well as on our Light Middleweights page.
Spence: Official: 149 - Unofficial: 162
Lo Greco: Official: 152 - Unofficial: 164
Sadam Ali VS Francisco Santana - Contested at Welterweight
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
Adrien Broner VS John Molina - This bout was meant to be at a limit between the light welterweight maximum of 140 and a special +1 rule bleeding into the welterweight class, by contract. So, very technically speaking, Broner came in at welterweight, Molina at light welterweight, despite only a pound difference.
Broner: Official: 141 - Unofficial: 157
Molina: Official: 140 - Unofficial: 154
Keith Thurman VS Robert Guerrero - Contested at Welterweight
(PBC TOTT, on NBC)
Thurman: Official: 147 - Unofficial: 162
Guerrero: Official: 147 - Unofficial: 152 was listed on the TOTT, but Marv Albert announced the number as 157
Brandon Rios VS Mike Alvarado - Contested at Welterweight
Timothy Bradley VS Diego Chaves - Contested at Welterweight
Manny Pacquiao VS Chris Algieri - Contested at Welterweight, with a 144-pound catch-weight
(Chris Algieri, though he was the fighter moving up in weight from his last contest, and a licensed nutritionist, was forced to take some clothes off and try again, then come back in about a half an hour for another trip, and made the weight)
Sadam Ali VS Luis Carlos Abregu - Contested at Welterweight
Brandon Rios VS Diego Gabriel Chavez - Contested at Welterweight (Chavez weighed one pound over the limit)
Juan Manuel Marquez VS Mike Alvarado (Contested at Welterweight (147), with a catch weight limit of 143, Alvarado coming in a hair over and the Marquez camp not bothering to hold it against him
Manny Pacquiao VS Timothy Bradley (rematch) - Contested at Welterweight
Manny Pacquiao VS Brandon Rios - Contested at Welterweight
Timothy Bradley VS Juan Manuel Marquez - Contested at Welterweight
Keith Thurman VS Diego Chaves - Contested at Welterweight
Marcos Rene Maidana VS Josesito Lopez - Contested at Welterweight
Lucas Matthysse VS Lamont Peterson - Contested at Welterweight, with a catch weight merely one pound above the Light Welterweight limit, so that Peterson's title would not be on the line at Light Welterweight.
Timothy Bradley VS Manny Pacquiao I - Contested at Welterweight
Randall Bailey VS Mike Jones
Floyd Mayweather Junior VS Victor Ortiz - Contested at Welterweight

Floyd Mayweather Junior VS Juan Manuel Marquez - Contested at Welterweight with a catch-weight in place which Mayweather could not or did not wish to make after all, coming in two pounds over the initially agreed upon 144-pound catch-weight limit and renegotiating with Marquez in order to do so. HBO's TOTT was read by commentator Jim Lampley and he mentioned that Marquez allowed his weight to be taken on the night of the fight but Lampley says: "Mayweather did not allow us to weigh him on our unofficial scale."
