By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. - Saturday night's boxing match, Adrien Broner vs. Vicente Escobedo has
come under threat of being cancelled. According to a report out by
Ring TV (A Media outlet owned by Oscar De La Hoya), Escobedo's Manager
has threatened to have his fighter pull out of this weekend's HBO main
event because Broner weighed in on Friday at 133.5 lbs., which is over
the agreed 130 pound limit.
Quoted by the
publication, Rolando Arellano who represents Escobedo stated: "He's
(Adrien) the champion, and he's got to make weight. That's not our
problem. We're in his hometown and he's got all of the unfair
advantages." Arellano went on to add that his side has fulfilled their
obligations (Escobedo weighed in at the 130 lbs. limit) and hoped to work something out, stating: "So we'll see what
we can work out."
The report further indicated that
Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel (WBO president) has confirmed the fight will
be allowed to go on, but Broner has lost his title at the scales.
