Those wondering whether Adrien Broner would have trouble making weight for a second straight fight might have had their questions answered — it doesn’t appear so.

Broner weighed in at 139 pounds on Nov. 9, giving him a week to lose just four pounds and make the lightweight limit for his Nov. 17 bout with Antonio DeMarco, according to information provided to BoxingScene.com by William Boodhoo, an official with the World Boxing Council sanctioning body. Broner’s weight was certified by Rudy Tellez, Boodhoo said.

The maximum Broner could have been was 142 pounds. The WBC’s 7-day weigh-in requires fighters to be within 5 percent of what they must be for their bout (DeMarco holds the WBC’s world title at 135 pounds).

As for DeMarco, the WBC had not received a 7-day weight for him as of Monday evening.

DeMarco had been at 143 pounds for his 30-day weigh-in, well within the maximum of 149 pounds (which is 10 percent over the lightweight limit). That figure was verified by Mauricio Sulaiman of the WBC, according to Boodhoo — except that the 30-day weigh-in was actually done on Oct. 25, or 22 days before the bout.

Broner, meanwhile, was 145.7 pounds on Oct. 26, or 21 days before the bout, a figure certified by a physician’s assistant named Aaron White, according to Boodhoo.

DeMarco has provided the WBC with all of his medicals.

“I still need to get any/all of Broner’s medicals,” Boodhoo said via email Monday evening.

UPDATE: Broner provided the WBC with his medicals as of Tuesday evening, according to Boodhoo.

[quote=WESS]Assuming his skills are on par, how high up in weight does anyone think he could go?[/quote] I think he will soon move to 140 (within a year) and settle there for a year or two, then move to welterweight. Nothing at 135 will stop him. 140 has fighters that will challenge him.

[QUOTE=SkillspayBills]Guy grows out of a weight class and misses weight ONE TIME and all of a sudden he is a weight cheat SMFH[/QUOTE] Hahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha

[QUOTE=Realizniguhnit]a barely 5'7 (5'6 imo) Broner is not huge.. He's small..very small. He may think he's a middleweight or welterweight but he's fooling himself. The 5'7 Zab Judah also walks around at 155, would you consider him huge? He was beatin to a pulp by true welters, even 140lbers, hen...

Damn these silly pactarts angry that Broner didn't make weight and call him a "weight cheat" now.. lol I bet they don't even know Pac was overweight in a fight early in his career too... According to their simple logic, I guess pac is a weight cheat too. lol

[QUOTE=WESS]Assuming his skills are on par, how high up in weight does anyone think he could go?[/QUOTE] 140. He probably suffers his first lost there.
