Garcia vs. Lopez Weigh In Report




By Marc Livitz in Dallas, TX.: Multitudes of boxing fans braved the scorching Texas heat for a chance to grab a preferable spot inside the American Airlines Arena in downtown Dallas, Texas this afternoon. If the crowd in attendance was any indication, then tomorrow evening’s showdown between WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia and former titleholder Juan Manuel Lopez should itself be a very hot ticket as well.

 

The concourse of the arena was host to a very raucous crowd and so tomorrow night’s action to be televised on HBO in the United States could be one to remember, perhaps even as a Mexico versus Puerto Rico battle. The fireworks commenced early as Lopez called Garcia’s failure to make the featherweight limit of 126 lbs. "unprofessional". Mikey of course was given two hours to shed the extra weight.
