The stage for the WBA welterweight world title bout between Manny Pacquiao and Lucas Matthysse on Saturday is set now that the fighters have completed weigh-ins.

Pacquiao (59-7-2) and Matthysse (39-4-0) stepped on the scales at Malaysia’s Bukit Jalil National Stadium. There was no drama in that regard, as both fighters came in under the 147-pound limit. According to ESPN’s Salvador Rodriguez, Pacman weighed in at 146 pounds, while Matthysse came in at 146.7 pounds.

Saturday will mark the first time in more than one year—378 days to be exact (h/t ESPN Stats & Info)—that Pacquiao will step into the ring for an official fight. His last match came on July 2, 2017, against Jeff Horn, which resulted in a controversial loss.
