Alvarez-Hatton: "Weight" Being Stacked Against Matthew

By Mark Vester

According to veteran reporter  Jeff Powell of Daily Mail , moves are being made that are going to put Matthew Hatton at a bigger disadvantage in Saturday's fight with unbeaten Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The fight is going to happen at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. 

The fight is contracted for a catch-weight of 150-pounds. When the contract was signed, there was no title at stake. Last week the WBC approved Alvarez-Hatton for their vacant 154-pound title. Powell was advised that the WBC is going to order both fighters to compete at the full division limit of 154-pounds. Hatton is a smaller welterweight who is moving up to take the fight.  

To make matters worse for Hatton, Powell was told that Golden Boy Promotions will move the weigh-in from mid-afternoon to noon, which is going to provide Alvarez with additional time to rehydrate.
