In the upcoming IBF minimumweight world championship bout, Muhammad Rachman of Indonesia and challenger Florante Condes of the Philippines made weight during today's weigh-in and both appear to be in great shape. The champion, Rachman came in at 104.3 lbs while Condes tipped the scales at 103.8 lbs. To impress the spectators, Condes flexed his muscles ala Manny Pacquiao.

During today's weigh-in at the Waterfront Hotel & Casino in Cebu City, Donnie Nietes, the defending WBO Minifly title-holder of the Philippines made the required weight of 105 lbs on the second try after stepping in at 106 lbs on the first try.
