Weight problems for Vasquez Jr.

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Trusted sources from Puerto Rico have informed us that former WBO super bantamweight world champion Wilfredo Vazquez, Jr. weighed in Friday at 132.6 pounds during the one-week pre weigh-in of the Puerto Rico Boxing Commission and is 4.5 pounds over the maximum weight which is 5% by weight of the 122-pound division limit. Vazquez takes on Nonito Donaire on February 4th in a fight for his former belt (now vacant) on the undercard of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Marco Antonio Rubio at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
