From the Casa Nissan in El Paso for tomorrow night’s “Latin Invasion 2” card tomorrow night at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso: After four of five bouts had fighters weighing in overweight, fighters and their respective camps complained of a bad scale. The Texas Athletic Commission, however, at one point moving the scale from a raised platform to the floor (which made no difference), were adamant about their correct scale.  Main eventer Hector Camacho, Jr. came in the heaviest, at 5 1/2 pounds over the limit.

Hector Camacho Jr. 159.5 vs. Ramon “Yory Boy” Campas 152*
* For the WBC Caribbean jr. middleweight belt. Camacho has two hours to lose weight.

Antonio Escalante 130 vs. Carlos Fulgencio 126.5*
* Escalante was two hours to lose two pounds.
David Medina 167 vs. Miguel Hernandez 174 1/2*
* Hernandez has two hours to lose 4.5 pounds.
Bobby Joe Valdez 151 vs. Abel Perry 149*
* Valdez has two hours to lose two pounds.
Cesar Valenzuela 140.5 vs. Cruz Garcia 143.5

The Randy Griffin-Marcos Primera and Sammy Dipace-LeShaun Blair bouts were both scratched when, both, Primera and Blair submitted their medical exams late.
