The loaded light heavyweight division will be on display Saturday in New York, and all four fighters jockeying for position made weight Friday.

Sergey Kovalev, THE RING’s No. 4 pound-for-pound fighter, weighed a shade under the limit at 174.6 pounds. His WBO title will be on the line against Igor Mikhalkin, who came in light at 172.6.

In the co-feature, fast-rising titleholder Dmitry Bivol will defend his strap against Sullivan Barrera, whose only loss came to Andre Ward in 2016.

Bivol tipped the scales at 174.4 pounds. Barrera weighed 173.6.



The HBO telecast kicks off at 10:05 p.m. ET from the Theater at Madison Square Garden.
