Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. avoided a $250,000 fine by making the 168lb contract weight for Saturday’s rematch with Bryan Vera. However, WBO featherweight champion Orlando “Siri” Salido failed to make the 126 lb. featherweight limit and lost his world title on the scale. Salido didn’t attempt to lose the extra weight and will pay a fine of $15,000. Only Lomachenko can win the title on Saturday night.
