Jose Pedraza and Richard Commey on Friday made weight for their junior welterweight fight Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma (ESPN, ESPN+).
Pedraza (29-4, 14 KOs) weighed 139.8 pounds, .2 under the division limit. Commey (30-4, 27 KOs) came in at 138.8.
Commey, a former 135-pound titleholder from Ghana, is fighting for the first time as a full-fledged 140-pounder. This will be Pedraza’s sixth bout as a junior welterweight. The Puerto Rican won major belts at 130 and 135.
The fight is particularly significant for both boxers because they are coming off losses, Pedraza a unanimous decision against Jose Ramirez in March and Commey a wide decision against Vasiliy Lomachenko last December.
In the co-feature, heavyweight prospect Jared Anderson (11-0, 11 KOs) of Toledo, Ohio, will face Miljan Rovcanin (24-2, 16 KOs) of Serbia in a scheduled eight-round bout. Anderson weighed 241.4, Rovcanin 230.6.
