Corpus Christi Weigh In Report - Garcia/Martinez make weight!


Martinez and Garcia (Marc Livitz)
Martinez and Garcia (Marc Livitz)

By Marc Livitz in Corpus Christi, TX: This afternoon in the quaint coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas, there was no place like home. Particularly, home plate. The start and finish point of the great American pastime, as in a baseball diamond provided a most interesting locale for a weigh in. For now, matters remain to be seen in terms of how many swings until out once the bell rings. HBO’s "Boxing After Dark" will showcase a televised tripleheader from the American Bank Center tomorrow night.

 

Multiple titles are on the line in addition to a long awaited grudge rematch finally taking place. The main event features up and coming star Miguel Angel "Mikey" Garcia in a scheduled 12 round contest for Roman "Rocky" Martinez’s WBO Super Featherweight title. The co-main event features a long awaited rematch between Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire and Vic "The Raging Bull" Darchinyan.

 

Each and every fighter involved could now say that they checked in for their respective contests upon the fresh cut grass of Whataburger Field. There was even a scuffle of sorts between Vanes Martirosyan and Demetrius Andrade before a true staredown could take place in anticipation of their showdown for the WBO Super Welterweight belt.
