Russell tipped the scales at 126 pounds for his 12-round challenge for the WBC Featherweight championship held by Jhonny Gonzalez who weighed in at 125 pounds.

Sigmon came in at 164 1/2 pounds while his opponent in his eight-round contest, J'Leon Love, tipped the scales at 168 pounds, three pounds over the contracted weight.  The bout will go on as scheduled.

The Showtime broadcast that will feature Gonzalez vs. Russell will begin at 10 PM ET.  Apparently, there will be no Showtime Extreme coverage of this card so Sigmon's contest will not be shown on television.
