Bradley Rios Weigh in Results

Las Vegas, NV – Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley, Jr. (32-1-1, 12 KOs) weighed in at 146 lbs and “Bam Bam” Brandon Rios (33-2-1, 24 KOs) officially weighed in at 147 lbs today. They are set to throw down Saturday night in a 12 round championship title bout at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas. Bradley, Jr. will defend his WBO World Welterweight Title that he gained in a unanimous decision victory over Jessie Vargas in June.


“I know (Bradley, Jr.) will come out well prepared, he’s always in shape, and I know he will give it his all, as well as I will,” said Rios, who was given an hour to lose .2 lbs after he weighed in a little over the contracted weight. When he returned to the scale, he officially made weight. “If he is going to try to box, we are ready for that. If he is going to brawl, we’re ready for that. We are ready for anything he will bring to the table.”


“I am more than ready for this fight. I’ve prepared very well, mentally, physically, spiritually”, said Bradley, Jr. “Brandon is a tough, tough opponent. I give it up to Brandon.”


Also on the card for Saturday night, Ukraine’s Vasyl Lomachenko (4-1, 2 KOs) will defend his WBO World Featherweight title when he faces Mexico’s Romulo Koasicha (25-4, 15 KOs) in a 12 round bout. They both officially weighed in at 125.6 lbs.


“Lomachenko is a great fighter, and I am a great fighter”, said Koasicha. “Many people don’t know me, but this Saturday, they’re going to see who is Romulo Koaschia.


Vasyl Lomachenko has been highly impressive in his career. He won two Olympic gold medals. One in Bejing and one in London. As a professional, he pushed forward fairly quickly and fought for a world championship in his second pro fight. He faced Orlando Salido for the vacant WBO World Featherweight title in which he lost by split decision. Salido lost the title being overweight, which gave Lomachenko another opportunity to fight for the championship in his third pro fight against Gary Russell, Jr. He beat Russell, Jr. by majority decision to gain the WBO World Featherweight title. Lomachenko will be defending his title for the third time on Saturday night.


Tickets for this fight are still on sale, they range from $400, $250, $150, and $150. It will be aired live on HBO at 6pm PT/9pm ET.
