Garcia vs. Lopez Weigh-In: Garcia is two-pounds over the featherwight limit and looks so drain

Garcia vs Lopez Weigh-in Result:

Garcia came in on the scales at 128 pounds, two pounds over the featherweight limit. Garcia looks so drain in the weigh-in. It seems he is having difficulty making the division limit. I hope this will not be a big factor in the fight outcome.

I believe he should move up to super-featherweight division after this fight.

Juan Manuel Lopez came in at 125.25 pounds and look ripped. 
The featherweight showdown between undefeated WBO champion Mikey Garcia and Puerto Rican star Juan Manuel Lopez will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark at the American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas, USA.

Garcia did not bother to make another try to make the weight that might pose health problems. This means that he lost his WBO Featherweight title without even setting his foot in the ring.

Lopez at 125.25 will be contesting the title that he once held.

Weigh-In Result:
