LOS ANGELES — Errol Spence versus Shawn Porter is on in only a matter of hours as both fighters make weight for their unification bout Sunday (Manila time).

This time though, Porter didn’t have to trim his locks to go inside the intended 147-pound catchweight unlike before his title defense against Yordenis Ugas the last time. 

The WBC welterweight champ made weight on his very first try at the scales, weighing in at exactly 147 pounds as his IBF counterpart and fellow champion also tipped the scales at 147 during their official weigh-in at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown hotel.

Now, the scheduled 12-rounder is all set in less than 24 hours at the Staples Center here.

Boxers of the much-awaited pre-main event matchup also made weight just before Spence 925-0, 21 KOs) and Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs).

WBC super-middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell and former WBC champ David Benavidez both made weight fit for their 168-pound title match.
