Carolina Duer and Gabriela Bouvier Make Weight

Carolina Duer and Gabriela Bouvier both made weight ahead of their super bantamweight clash tomorrow at Polideportivo los Polvorines in a suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina.  This is a high-level crossroads fight between two former world champions.

Duer (20-6-2, 6 KOs) weighed in at 121 pounds. The 44 year old is a former super flyweight and bantamweight world champion. She has weighed more than 121 pounds five times in her career. Her heaviest was last fight in 2021 when she came in at 129.8 pounds. Her lightest weight was 114.5 pounds back in 2011. Duer's weight today indicates she's in very good shape for this fight.

Bouvier (16-12-1, 3 KOs) weighed in at 119.3 pounds. BoxRec doesn't have weights listed for ten of the 31 year old Uruguayan's fights, but her lightest recorded was 109.3 pounds back in 2013 when she won the South American flyweight title.  Last June, she came in at 127.3 pounds against Skye Nicolson. Bouvier has been heavier than she weighed in today in five or her last six fights. That could mean she's in better shape than usual or she's a bit weight-drained. We'll find out tomorrow!

A preview of the fight can be found here. This bout is scheduled for ten-two minute rounds for an alphabet organization's minor title. The bout is slated to be shown on Fox Sports Argentina.
