All boxers made weight for Sunday's edition of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on FS1, which takes place at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles, California.

Headlining the show, veteran welterweight Josesito Lopez looks to revive his career as the Califrornia-based spoiler faces Mexico's Saul Corral in a scheduled 10-round clash. Riverside's Lopez (34-7. 19KOs) tipped the scales at 148.4 lbs., while Corral (21-8. 12KOs) was under the welterweight limit at 146.8 lbs.

In the evening's co-feature, Alejandro Luna puts his unbeaten record on the line as he faces one-time lightweight title challenger Andrey Klimov in a scheduled 10-round lightweight affair. Luna (21-0, 15KOs) representing Bellflower, Calif. - tipped the scales at 137 lbs. while Klimov (19-3, 9KOs) - who hails from Kilmovsk, Russia - weighed in at 136.8 lbs.

The bulk of the show, however, is dedicated to four Olympians from three different nations making their respective pro debuts.

Karlos Balderas - who came within one win from competing for a lightweight medal while representing USA in the 2016 Rio Olympics - came in at a ripped and ready 131.6 lbs. for his first pro bout versus Dallas' Thomas Smith (3-4-1, 2KOs), who weighed 131 lbs.

Mexican Olympians Lindolfo Delgado and Misael Rodriguez once again appear on the same stage, as both are slated for separate four round bouts. Delgado weighed 138 lbs for his super lightweight clash with countryman Luis Silva (3-9, 2KOs) who weighed 138.8 lbs., while Rodriguez and opponent Brian True (1-6-1, 1KO) each came in at 161 lbs. for their middleweight bout.

The last of the Olympian quartet comes all the way from Lithuania, as Eimantas Stanionis (149.6 lbs.) takes on Ventura's Rasheed Lawal (148 lbs., 1-4-1) in a four-round welterweight heat.
