Adrien Broner - Vicente Escobedo
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. - Tonight's Boxing match between Adrien Broner vs. Vicente Escobedo has been called off. The reason for the cancellation stems from Broner failing to keep to an agreed weight of no more than 140 lbs..

Yesterday at the weigh in, Broner came in at 3.5 pounds over the agreed limit of 130 lbs.  For the fight to stay on, he needed to stay under 140 lbs.  Reports are now confirming he failed at that weigh in this morning.

Escobedo speaking to the Sac Bee (News publication), made a statement that he is not happy with the fight being called off do to failed weigh on behalf of Broner.  Escobedo stated: "I'm very disappointed." Escobedo had sent the publication a text message confirming the fight was off.

So is it complete doom and gloom for Broner vs. Escobedo? According to our source (who would not go on record because they were not authorized to speak out on the matter), some behind the scenes dealing are ongoing in an effort to save tonight's bout. So, there is a chance the fight will still go on. (Escobedo reportedly weigh in at 140 this morning and Broner at 143... so if you ask me... there is still some wiggle room to save the bout.)

Doghouse Boxing will stay on top of this late breaking story with more updates as the become available.
