Sergio Martinez and Martin Murray both had a little less than a month to lose about 10 pounds for their April 27 middleweight championship fight in Buenos Aires, Argentina, according to figures provided by World Boxing Council official William Boodhoo.

Martinez came in at 77.4 kilograms, or about 170.6 pounds, on March 28, a figure certified by Don Antonio Martín Galán of the Federación Española de Boxeo, according to the WBC. Murray, meanwhile, came in at 12 stone and 2 pounds, or 170 pounds, on March 28; that figure was certified by a British Boxing Board of Control inspector.

The maximum either fighter could have been is 176 pounds, which they were well within. The WBC’s 30-day weigh-in requires fighters to be within 10 percent of what they must be when they step on the scales. Martinez and Murray had their weights certified 30 days before their bout and 29 days before their final weigh-in.

Martinez, 38, last fought in December, when he survived a final-round knockdown to win an otherwise wide unanimous decision over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. That victory brought his record to 50-2-2 with 28 knockouts.

Murray, 30, is coming off a sixth-round stoppage of Jorge Navarro last November. That win improved his record to 25-0-1 with 11 knockouts.

[QUOTE=BafanaBafana]Source please? And I want an official commission approved weight (like Sergio's 170 against Murray) not some BS quote from Froch or his promoter/manager.[/QUOTE] You want an official commission approved walk around weight? How do I go about getting one of those?

comment by IronDanHamza, on 04-03-2013
[QUOTE=BafanaBafana]They took their weights on March 28 and their fighting April 27... you think that's less than a month from their fight? March 28, 29, 30, 31, April 1, 2... 26, 27. And if you knew anything about boxing you'd know most fighters cut at least 10-15 pounds a month removed from ...

[QUOTE=mathed]Bradley was at 167 a month out from his fight but I don't think he should be fighting at 168 though.[/QUOTE] Agreed... Bradley should infact be fighting at heavyweight.
