Ricky Burns and Ray Beltran both made the weight for their WBO lightweight title cash at the SECC in Glasgow on Saturday night.
At a good natured weigh-in, the Mexican was first onto the scales and was just inside the 9st 9lb limit at 9st 8lb 13oz, with Burns following just 9 ounces lighter.
The champion, making his third defence of the full title, looked confident and relaxed as he completed the long build-up to the fight.
"For me that's the hard bit over," he told Sky Sports. "One day to go...I'm just itching to get out there and put on a good performance for the fans that have turned out today.
"I've heard ticket sales have been going well so hopefully it will be a sell-out crowd at the SECC.
"Everything has come together for this fight, I've made the weight so much easier this time - the last time I did struggle a wee bit but I made it comfortably this time."
