Broner-Escobedo is on

By Brian Grammer and Clint Rosser at ringside

Adrien Broner weighed in at 143.5 at the Saturday morning weigh-in, rather than the agreed to 140, the Vicente Escobedo Team threatening to pull out. However, we understand the fight is a go after a “confidential agreement” was reached.

Update 3: The coverage team is at ringside. No fans have been let in the arena yet but it looks like we have a fight card.

Update 2: Just talked to 3 WBO offcials outside the Hilton and they said that they have no idea if the fight is going to go on or not — Brian Grammer

Update 1: Rolando Arellano, manager of Escobedo told, “No comment. There’s great controversy in the air” — Flattop
