No Scale Drama For This Week's Telemundo Telecast

By Jake Donovan

A simple matter such as fighters making weight and going through with their scheduled fights Friday evening had promoter Tuto Zabala breathing a sigh of relief.

"I don't need anymore headaches like last week," the veteran promoter playfully remarked the veteran promoter. Despite having to work through the holidays, Zabala's promotional company All-Star Boxing is able to proudly present this week's edition of Boxeo Telemundo as advertised on the fight poster.

All fighters came in at their respective required weight limits for Friday's show at Salon Jose Cuervo in Mexico City, Mexico. The main event features David "Severo" Carmona versus Danny  "El Venado" Flores in a super flyweight youth title fight.

Both fighters came in at the divisional limit of 115 lb. for their headlining bout, which airs live on Telemundo at 11:35PM ET.

This week's show is the third of four consecutive Fridays, making for the second of three seasons within the 2013 boxing season. The new format of three separate periods of four straight weeks was introduced this year, a change from previous seasons where shows would traditionally air once per month. The firsf four episodes this season aired in late February and early March.

Last Friday's episode took a number of hits. Several fights and fighters fell through late in the promotion, and the main event was severely compromised after Joan Guzman - a frequent failure at the scales - was more than a full weight class over his scheduled 140 lb. vacant title fight with Vicente Mosquera.

The show eventually went on, with Mosquera proceeding in the evening's main event against very late sub Cosme Rivera.

Friday's card remains fully intact, barring any unforeseen occurrences within the next 24 hours.

"I'm going to sit back, relax and enjoy this show... just like I've always planned," Zabala joked.
