MANILA, Philippines – Filipino bet Nonito  Donaire Jr. and Guillermo Rigondeaux made weight Saturday morning (Manila time) for their WBO and WBA super bantamweight unification bout set on Sunday.

Donaire tipped the scales at 121.6 pounds while Rigondeaux at 121.5, both under the 122-pound limit. The two champions clash before an expected sell-out crowd at the Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Donaire (31-1, 20 KOs), voted Fighter of the Year for 2012, tries to add the WBA crown of Cuban Rigondeaux (11-0, 8 KOs), a two-time Olympic gold medalist.
