How was the event a mess if the show went on fight night without a hitch?

Know that I am not defending Broner not making weight that was just wrong and how he handled not making weight afterwards was even worse. Broner lost some major points with me behind that. But I am not one for public apologies because this didn't hurt the public cause the fight still went on. That was a situation where Broner on his own time owed Escabedo an apology and no one else.
I can respect your point, but the apology IMO was the right thing to do. He wasn't professional and it almost caused the show's cancellation. He also undermined what should have been seen as a very good win for someone his age.

He could have used the post fight interview to present himself in a better light given how unprofessional he looked.
