Friday, 10:30 a.m. ET -- One day to go

The buildup is almost all over, and the fight so many of us have been waiting for, is a little over a day away. The weigh-in today will provide the last chance for us to see the two fighters before Saturday night, and I don't think there's any doubt that both men will make weight and look good. The weigh-in is often a good gauge of the likely crowd size, atmosphere and relative support. I'll be back later with a report from the scales; and I'll be spending much of the day prowling the corridors of the MGM Grand, looking for comments from fans and others as people start to appear for the big fight. -- Kieran Mulvaney
