By Miguel Rivera

Former two division champion Juan Manuel Lopez (33-2, 30KOs) is very upset with Mikey Garcia (31-0, 26KOs), who failed to make weight on Friday and lost his WBO featherweight crown on the scale. Garcia was overweight by two pounds, coming in at 128-pounds - while Juanma was 125.2.

Garcia was unable to drop the extra weight and Juanma, who threatened to withdraw from the fight, was paid a reported six-figure sum in order to move forward as scheduled on Saturday night at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

"He says he's a better fighter than me in the ring. But today I proved it on the scale [that I'm the better fighter]. Garcia was not professional in that sense. I fulfilled what I had to do. They had to pay me well or else I wasn't going to fight. I'm going to show everyone what I can do. I made the ​​weight without any problems and we will take that title back to Puerto Rico," Juanma said.

[QUOTE=WARQUEZ]Things like this happen in boxing. Garcia isn't a FW anymore. Some folks are taking it way too seriously, 2 pounds wasn't going to change the outcome of this fight regardless.[/QUOTE] Things like this happen when you're unprofessional. It's a shame

Mikey

I like Mikey but even I won't be defending him being over by 2lb. Not on. I thought he was much more professional. Still think he wins though.

Good for Juanma. It was already a difficult fight for him before being cheated on the scales, 2lbs is a disgraceful amount to miss weight by...especially from a champion.

There should be a rule that states that the fighter that comes in above the agreed limit should get a large portion of his pay deducted.
