The official number of fans at the MGM Grand for the weigh in was 12,200, and many more were turned away as anticipation builds for tonight's pay-per-view event.

Here is a full run down of the weights as Mayweather and Alvarez make the 152lbs limit, but Danny Garcia has to lose half a pound after he weighed a little over at the the first time of asking ahead of his clash with Lucas Matthysse.

(WBC/WBA super welterweight titles)

Danny Garcia 140 vs. Lucas Matthysse 140
(WBC/WBA super lightweight titles)
* Garcia weighed 140.5 on the first try, reweighed at 140.

Ishe Smith 151.5 vs. Carlos Molina 153
