Official weights from Harrah’s Chester

By John DiSanto –

Eric Hunter 125.5 vs. Mike Oliver 125.5
Julio De Jesus 141.5 vs. Hasan Young 141.5
Anthony Prescott 149.5 vs. Carlos Moore 146.0
Richard Irizarry 127.75 vs. Joshua Arocha 129.0
Josue Rivera 147.5 vs. Jesus Barbosa 152.0*

*Jesus Barbosa was 4 pounds over the contract weight of 148, and was given 30 minutes to lose as much weight as possible. It appeared that the fight would go on regardless of Barbosa’s final weight, but a financial penalty would be charged for every pound he was over the contract limit (after the 30 minutes).

Note: Hunter and Oliver officially weighed in last night (9/12), and re-weighed in this morning. Both weighed 128 pounds at the second weigh in.

Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
