Magdaleno vs Vicente: Card set to go, one fight lost at weigh-in

Jessie Magdaleno had to strip down, but he made weight for Thursday’s main event.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Thursday night’s ESPN card featuring the return of former 122-pound titleholder Jessie Magdaleno is set to go, though one fight was lost at today’s weigh-in, and Magdaleno had some trouble making his catchweight limit.

Magdaleno (27-1, 18 KO) is facing Yenifel Vicente (36-4-2, 28 KO) in the 10-round main event, which is technically a junior lightweight bout, with a 128-pound catchweight limit.

The 28-year-old Magdaleno originally weighed in at 128.2 pounds, but was able to strip down and come in at 127.9. Vicente, 33, weighed in at 126.5.

The featherweight co-feature between Adam Lopez (13-2, 6 KO) and Luis Coria (12-2, 7 KO) is also good to go. Lopez weighed in at 125.8, with Coria at 124.7, both comfortably below the 126-pound limit.

The fight lost was going to be a matchup between Bryan Lua and Dan Murray, which is off due to Murray missing weight.

There will be two bouts between the co-feature (which is opening the show at 8 pm ET) and the main event.

Eric Mondragon (3-0, 2 KO) and Mike Sanchez (6-0, 2 KO) will meet in a six-round lightweight bout. Mondragon weighed in at 133, with Sanchez at 132.3. The other is a bantamweight bout between Gabriel Muratalla (2-0, 2 KO) and Fernando Robles (2-2, 0 KO). Muratalla weighed in at 118.3, with Robles at 118 on the money.

Bad Left Hook will have full live coverage tomorrow night beginning at 8 pm ET, with the show airing in full on ESPN.
