The calm before the storm that is Canelo Alvarez vs. Daniel Jacobs was not so calm after all.
One day before the two middleweight stars meet in the ring for a world title unification, Alvarez and Jacobs stepped in to the scales for the official weigh-ins. Both fighters were able to successfully make the 160-pound limit, but when they faced off, things got heated very quickly with Alvarez mildly shoving Jacobs, causing officials to quickly step in and separate the two. As for the rest of the card, there was no drama on the scales as every fighter successfully made weight and Fightful has you covered with the weigh-in results.
