List of Fights Which Had No Unofficial Weights Listed On Their Tale of the Tape

This page is a complimentary page to the unofficial weights page. The purpose is to prevent anyone from a wild-goose chase to find information that was not released. I will be updating it with as many fights as I come across. The reason why it is only HBO is simply that they are the only channel who goes to the trouble of trying to regularly obtain this information, that I am aware.

Edit: Because Showtime events are trying to include these more in recent years, I will begin adding Showtime events for those interested. If you enjoy the work that we're doing to make this reference page, any sharing would be appreciated. Thanks to anyone for their interest.

Edit: The unofficial weights listings have carried over in the very welcomed Premier Boxing Champions Broadcasts, so we will include those now.



Dmitry Bivol VS Sullivan Barrera - Contested at Light Heavyweight
HBO Broadcast - Madison Square Garden Theater, New York, New York, USA

Sergey Kovalev VS Igor Mikhalkin - Contested at Light Heavyweight
HBO Broadcast - Madison Square Garden Theater, New York, New York, USA


Top Rank/ESPN broadcast for Jerwin Ancajas VS Israel Gonzalez and Gilberto Ramirez VS Habib Ahmed Card chose not to use fight-night weights for anyone. A shame, because I was quite curious about Ramirez/Ahmed's difference.



Yves Ulysse Junior VS Cletus Seldin/Gary O'Sullivan VS Antoine Douglas/Billy Joe Saunders VS David Lemieux Card
HBO Broadcast, from Quebec:

Yves Ulysse Junior VS Cletus Seldin - Contested at a catch-weight of 142 pounds.
Ulysse Junior officially came in at 141.2, while Seldin came in at 141.6.

Gary O'Sullivan VS Antoine Douglas - Contested at Middleweight
Douglas officially weighed in at 159.2 and Sullivan at 158.8.

Billy Joe Saunders VS David Lemieux - Contested at Middleweight
Saunders and Lemieux were both officially 160. 


Yuriorkis Gamboa VS Jason Sosa - Contested at contracted weight of 131, technically, it was at Lightweight, but it was between Super Featherweight campaigners. Sosa had to pay a penalty for being unable to make weight, even upon stripping naked. He was up by only two-tenths of a pound.

HBO Broadcast - Madison Square Garden Theater, New York

Sergey Kovalev VS Vyacheslav Shabranskyy - Contested at Light Heavyweight
HBO Broadcast, Madison Square Garden Theater, New York
Cletus Seldin VS Roberto Ortiz - Contested just inside welterweight, but both thought to be Light Welterweight campaigners
HBO Broadcast, Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale

Danny Jacobs VS Luis Arias - Contested at Middleweight
HBO Broadcast, Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale


Ryota Murata VS Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam Card
Top Rank on ESPN
broadcast from Kokugikan, Tokyo, Japa





Andre Ward VS Paul Smith - Contested at Light Heavyweight class, catch-weight limit of 172 pounds. Smith misses the agreed upon mark somehow at 176.4, renegotiating with Ward with penalty money paid out, to missing a renegotiated rehydration limit the morning of the fight to be no more than 181 and hitting 184, renegotiating with penalty again, then having Ward lopsidedly beat him up and give him back his penalty money. So, Smith is no less than 184 in the ring that night, presumably, and almost certainly more if Smith was trying at all. A total mess, professionally speaking.

(Roc Nation Sports/Throne Boxing/BET broadcast)

RNS commentator Barry Tompkins says Andre Ward thinks 168 is still best for him right now, even though it's "a little bit of a struggle".

TOTT for Ward/Smith, no rehydration listed by RNS.

Antonio Nieves VS Stephon Young - Contested at Super Bantamweight
(Roc Nation Sports/Throne Boxing/BET broadcast)

Miguel Cotto VS Daniel Geale - Contested at the Middleweight class, but limited to a catch-weight of 158 pounds, as requested by Miguel Cotto's camp.

Cotto: Official: 153.6 - Unofficial: HBO could not get Cotto's unofficial weight, which is normal for Cotto.
Geale: Official: 157 - Unofficial: 182 - This is a noteworthy gain and Jim Lampley made special note that it was with Geale's street clothes on, but obviously still massive.  Lampley guesses it's more like 175 in boxing gear but that seems a little low for the difference, to me.

Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar VS Vic Darchinyan - Contested at Featherweight
(PBC Card, partially broadcast on NBC and mostly broadcast on NBC Sports, no TOTT was shown, though there was one for the earlier broadcast of Robert Guerrero VS Aaron Martinez with a rehydration weight)


James DeGale VS Andre Dirrell - Contested at Super Middleweight

Javier Fortuna VS Bryan Vasquez - Contested at Super Featherweight
(PBC Card on Spike Channel)

Amir Khan VS Chris Algieri - Contested at Welterweight
(PBC Card on Spike Channel)

Edwin Rodriguez VS Craig Baker - Contested at Cruiserweight (just above Light Heavyweight, both presumed to be campaigning light heavyweights)
(PBC Card on NBC Sports, PBC Post-Fight coverage)

Danny O'Connor VS Chris Gilbert:

(PBC Card on NBC Sports, PBC Post-Fight coverage)

Jonathan Guzman VS Christian Esquivel:

(PBC Card on NBC Sports, PBC Post-Fight coverage)


Marcus Browne VS Aaron Pryor Junior
This was tied in with the Premiere Boxing Champions in an NBC Sports broadcast. It is listed here because some of PBC matches have actually done unofficial weights, which I praise them for.

Felix Diaz VS Gabriel Bracero
PBC Post-Fight Broadcast on NBC Sports

Andy Lee VS Peter Quillin - Contested at middleweight, but with Quillin weighing a half pound over, so technically at super middleweight, but very negligible difference.
(PBC Broadcast)

Artur Beterbiev VS Gabriel Campillo:
PBC Broadcast

Adonis Stevenson VS Sakio Bika:
PBC Broadcast


Glen Tapia VS Daniel Dawson: 
HBO Broadcast, from what I could tell, they mistakenly didn't show the TOTT and did not vocally mention about rehydration weights. It remains to be seen if the weights were available or if they simply didn't mention them and failed to show the TOTT image.

Shawn Porter VS Erick Bone:
(PBC Broadcast on Spike Channel)

Andre Berto VS Josesito Lopez: 
(PBC Broadcast on Spike Channel)

Amnat Ruenroeng VS Zou Shiming: 

HBO Broadcast, TOTT didn't cover rehydration weights


Gennady Golovkin VS Martin Murray:

Although listing the official weights more specifically than Boxrec currently has it, at Golovkin with 158.9 and Murray at 159.9, there were no unofficial weights listed on HBO's TOTT.



David Lemieux VS Gabe Rosado

Hugo Centeno Junior VS James De La Rosa

Thomas Dulorme VS Hank Lundy


Gennady Golovkin VS Daniel Geale

Gilberto Ramirez VS  Junior Talipeau


Demetrius Andrade VS Brian Rose

Chris Algieri VS Ruslan Provodnikov

Miguel Cotto VS Sergio Martinez


Nonito Donaire VS Simpiwe Vetyeka


Julio Cesar Chavez Junior VS Brian Vera II - Contested at Super Middleweight

"And, again, there are no unofficial weights tonight, because, most likely, Julio Cesar Chavez Junior has not agreed to step on the scale."

~Jim Lampley, during the broadcast of the tale of the tape.



Gennady Golovkin VS Curtis Stevens


Sergey Kovalev VS Nathan Cleverly - Contested at Light Heavyweight

Angulo's weight was released by HBO commentator Jim Lampley, however, not Kirkland's. Jim said:

"Alfredo Angulo unofficially weighs 163 tonight and the people in Kirkland's camp would not let us know what is his unofficial weight."
