Jose Zepeda and Josue Vargas came in under the 140-pound limit for their scheduled 10-round junior welterweight Saturday in New York (ESPN+).
Zepeda weighed 139.4, Vargas 139.0.
The fighters and their camps got into a scuffle after the fighters stepped off the scale, including the exchange of half-hearted — and perhaps choreographed — punches. However, it appeared that no one was injured.
Zepeda (34-2, 26 KOs) is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Hank Lundy in May, which followed his 2020 Fight of the Year knockout over Ivan Baranchyk.
The Los Angeles-area fighter, a two-time title challenger, is hoping for another shot at a major belt.
Vargas (19-1, 9 KOs) last fought in April, when he easily outpointed Willie Shaw.
Here is a video of the weigh-in.
