Now on to today’s question(s):
Prior to what should’ve been a WBO title defense against Vicente Escobedo, Adrian Broner missed the junior lightweight limit by slightly over three pounds. By fight time, he was 147 pounds, a welterweight. Like high school wrestlers, fighters dehydrate themselves to make lighter weights and after the weigh-in, they rehydrate and often times, the weight difference is quite substantial. For years, many fans and critics have believed that is very unhealthy and that weigh-ins should be done on the day of the fight.
You pay the bills, fans, so what do YOU think?
