From New York, NY —
Miguel Cotto: 152.5 (WBA junior middleweight champion)
Antonio Margarito: 152.5
Also, Brandon Rios has been forced to vacate his WBA lightweight title due to failing to make the 135 lb. limits after three tries. In his first attempt, he weighed in at 136.4 lbs. Moments later, he came in at 135.6 lbs. Then after being given an hour to lose the additional weight, he came back at 136.6 lbs.
In order to salvage the Rios-John Murray bout, both camps reached the agreement that Rios can’t gain more than ten pounds (146.6 lbs.) between Friday’s last weigh-in and 9 a.m. (ET) Saturday morning.
(It should be noted that the WBA lightweight belt lost by Rios is not acknowledged by The Boxing Tribune as the true WBA 135 lb. title. The true title holder is Juan Manuel Marquez, who is the WBA’s lineal champion (labeled as the “Super” champ by the organization) and the consensus top lightweight in the world)
