Broner vs Escobedo: Second Weigh-In on Saturday, Broner Can't Go Over 140

Ernest Gabion reports via Twitter that tomorrow's scheduled HBO main event between Adrien Broner and Vicente Escobedo is going ahead, but can still be called off.

Broner will weigh in again tomorrow morning at 9:30, and if he is over 140 pounds, Escobedo and his team are going to walk away from the fight.

Broner (23-0, 19 KO) has already lost his WBO super featherweight title by weighing in three and a half pounds over the 130-pound limit today, but the title would still be on the line for Escobedo (26-3, 15 KO) if the fight goes forward. If it does not, one would figure that Escobedo would get another fight, perhaps this fall, for the vacant title, as he is currently the No. 1 ranked challenger in the WBO ratings.

I do hope the fight still happens, but it's definitely tainted now. I'm hoping it happens mostly for selfish reasons, so that I have a fight to watch tomorrow night, but also for the guys on the undercard, who would be missing a payday for something that is totally out of their hands if the fight is called off.
