Selcuk Aydin makes 7 day check weight

WBC Silver welterweight champion will certainly not “pull a Broner” at his championship clash with Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero in San Jose next week (Saturday, July 28th live on Showtime Championship Boxing). At the mandatory WBC 7-day weight check Aydin brought 149 lbs. to the scale – which actually means that he was closer to the official limit one week ahead of his fight than Adrian Broner was at his official weigh-in for Escobero. The WBC officially allows up to 154 lbs. seven days before welterweight title fights. “The good thing about signing contracts in boxing is you know when you will fight and at which weight you will compete. So it’s actually quite easy to be in the limit in time when you know what you’re doing”, said head coach Conny Mittermeier. “As I said before we’ve had a great training camp and Selcuk is in tremendous shape. You have to feel sorry for Robert Guerrero who will be steamrolled by a fighting machine.”

“I can’t wait for the fight to finally begin”, added Aydin. “Hey Robert, look at me – and stop looking past me. This is the guy who will break your jaw. I know that you haven’t been in the ring for more than a year now. So you know how it feels to take a long break. You will have to take another year off when I’m done with you!”
