Nishioka was shredded. Donaire looks the same.

Rios looked really good. A gaunt face but he always does. He's much better at 140, I think.

Holy shit. Bam Bam Rios made weight. 140 on the dot.

He looks thin, but not gray and ashy like in the past.

Cool staredown between Rios and Alvarado. There's definitely some respect there. They know they are about to give each other hell.

Two half naked men who are about to fight each other facing off at their potentially weakest moment...

What's not to like?

Also sometimes if were lucky we might get to see a kiss between the two

I like anticipation. One of my favorite moments in boxing is after the fighters touch gloves and before the bell rings. There's a certain energy in the not knowing.

Agreed, I love staredowns in the middle of the ring right before they touch gloves and are listening to the final instructions. Cotto's look before the second Margarito fight and De La Hoya before the Vargas fight were really memorable.

Not boxing, but the staredown between Alistair Overeem and Badr Hari before their second fight was awesome as well. So much tension and anticipation... it was really exciting.
