Alan Sanchez, Ed Paredes Golden Boy Live! weigh-in results


Alan Sanchez weighed 149 compared to 148.5 for rival Ed Paredes in advance of Thursday’s “Golden Boy Live!” card in San Diego, California.

Sanchez (14-3-1, 8 knockouts) was last in the ring for a third-round stoppage of Jose Luis Ramirez Jr., who was down once in the first round and thrice more in the final round.

It was the 23-year-old’s second win since a unanimous-decision loss to former titleholder Luis Collazo in September 2013.

Paredes (35-4-1, 23 KOs) is coming off a unanimous-decision loss to Alfonso Gomez in July that ended his run at 14-0-1 with 10 knockouts.

Paredes, 29, had previously suffered defeat by unanimous decision against former IBF junior middleweight titleholder Carlos Molina in April 2009.

For the scheduled junior featherweight co-feature, Manuel Avila (16-0, 7 KOs) weighed 122 pounds even, and will face an opponent who was not determined at the time of Wednesday’s weigh-in after his previous opponent, Jose Luis Araiza, was forced to drop out, according to a release.

Avila, 22, has scored two straight knockouts, and won nine of his last 10 bouts. Avila was last in action for an eighth-round knockout of Sergio Frias in August 2014.

For another televised bout, junior welterweight Will Tomlinson (22-1-1, 12 KOs) and rival Miguel Zamudio (29-5-1, 17 KOs) weighed 134 and 137.

Tomlinson, 28, of Melbourne, Australia, was last in action for a unanimous decision over Alberto Cupido in August to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Jerry Belmontes in March.

Zamudio, 23, will be competing in his seventh fight of the year. He has scored consecutive fifth-round stoppages to bounce back from a pair of losses to Saul Rodriguez and title challenger Sharif Bogere in April and June.

The fights will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 starting at 10 pm ET. Below are the remaining weights for the card.
