Harrison taunted Charlo on stage while holding the WBC super welterweight championship belt he took from Charlo last December. Other than that, Charlo and Harrison didn’t do anything out of the ordinary after making weight for the grudge rematch FOX will televise Saturday night from Toyota Arena.
The final time they came face to face before boxing again was nothing like all the emotional moments they’ve shared while promoting their rematch.
Detroit’s Harrison (28-2, 21 KOs) stepped on the California State Athletic Commission’s scale at 153¼ pounds. Houston’s Charlo (32-1, 16 KOs) officially weighed 153¼ pounds, though he technically was two ounces heavier than Harrison (153.4 pounds to 153.2).
Charlo, 29, is consistently listed as a 3-1 favorite to beat Harrison in their second fight and avenge his only professional defeat. Harrison, also 29, was about an 8-1 underdog when he upset Charlo by unanimous decision in their 12-round championship match last December 22 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
