Broner Pulls a Boner, Loses Title on the Scales!

Reports from Cincinnati, OH have Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner (23-0, 19 KOs) weighing in 3.5 pounds over the 130 pound limit for his fight tomorrow night against Vicente Escobedo (26-3, 15 KOs). Broner was either unwilling or unable to lose the extra weight and has thus relinquished his WBO junior lightweight title on the scales.

Escobedo made the 130 pound limit, so the belt will remain on the line for him if the fight does indeed go forward as scheduled. The teams for both fighters are currently negotiating a maximum weight agreement for what is the main event of tomorrow’s HBO telecast.

Undefeated welterweight prospect Keith Thurman (17-0, 16 KOs) will take on Orlando Lora (29-2-2, 19 KOs)in the co-featured bout. Both Thurman and Lora weighed in at 147.5 pounds.

In recent weeks, Broner had mentioned that this would be his last fight at 130 pounds either way.
