Team Montiel Heated, Nonito Donaire Overweight

By Rick Reeno

EDITOR'S NOTE: Robert Garcia, the trainer for Nonito Donaire, has denied that his fighter was overweight. He said Donaire was at the limit.

Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas - WBO/WBC bantamweight champion Fernando Montiel and members of his team are upset because the official weigh-in has been pushed back by one hour in order to provide Nonito Donaire with additional time to make weight. Donaire stepped on the scale a few minutes before the official weigh-in was scheduled to begin, and he was reportedly overweight the weight limit by at least one pound.

[QUOTE=Chief2ndzOnly!;10124849]I doubt that team Montiel is scared at all. I understand them being pissed, because the longer it takes to do the official weight-in, [B]the longer "thier" fighter(Montiel)has to remain dehydrated to maintain the 118 that they made on time[/B].…
