After weighing in at 133.5, we’ve been told that Broner will be unable to make the 130lb limit. The bout U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati will go on with only Escobedo eligible to win the title. The camps are negotiating a max weight for another weigh-in Saturday morning and Broner will have to forfeit a portion of his purse to Escobedo.
