The 12-round Middleweight co-feature battle will take place from Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York on tomorrow's HBO "Boxing After Dark" starting at 10:05 p.m. ET/PT featuring main event Jezereel Corrales vs. Alberto Machado in a 12 round WBA Jr. Lightweight title bout.

Corrales was four pounds over the weight limit and he was unable to lose it in the required 2 hours. He weighed in a second time and only got down to 133.25. Machado was 130 on the nose when he weighed in.

The WBA world  title will now become vacant and only Machado will have the ability to win it. If Corrales wins, then the belt will remain vacant.

Corrales, 26, who has spent the majority of his career in Panama, is fighting in the U.S. for only the second time. His only ring loss came in 2009, in his second pro bout. Last July, Corrales defeated the formidable veteran Robinson Castellanos to set up this encounter with the unbeaten Machado.

Known for his power, the 27-year-oldMachado has an 83% knockout-to-win ratio and has been rising through the ranks of the 130-pound division. He previously scored a convincing decision victory over Carlos Morales and now faces his first shot at a title.

 The co-main event from Turning Stone is a battle of undefeated fighters, as Demetrius Andrade (24-0, 16KOs) of Providence, RI takes onAlantez Fox (23-0-1, 11KOs), fromForestville, Md., in a scheduled 12-round middleweight contest. Two-time junior middleweight champion Andrade, 29, is moving up in weight class to battle Fox, 25, in a showdown both fighters hope leads to a title fight. A member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team, Andrade has a deep amateur resume, having won a gold medal at the 2007AIBA World Boxing Championships. The six-foot-four Fox will look to exploit his height advantage over the six-foot-one Andrade.

4 lbs over? they pull this **** because they know the other guy will still fight them because if they dont fight they dont get paid. He should have to forfeit half his purse but nothing will happen if it…

Corrales should move up

[QUOTE=BigZ44;18150072]I expect Corrales to win and the belt to be vacated. Just looked at the WBA rankings, would like to see Cuellar vs Fortuna for the title[/QUOTE] No wonder Alberto decided to fight Corrales despite failure to make the weight…

Andrade vs Rosado after this. Maybe something worse.

[QUOTE=FinitoxDinamita;18151082]Are you serious? Lol[/QUOTE] Andrade is more renowned than Fox.
