Mexico's Pablo Cano has failed to make the welterweight limit
ahead of his clash with WBA champion Paulie Malignaggi.
"El Demoledor" first tipped the scales at 1lbs 2oz over the
147lbs limit. He was given an hour to try and work off the excess
weight but was still 8oz too heavy.
The fight will still go ahead but it means that Cano will not
take Malignaggi's title should he emerge victorious. In that
circumstance the title would become vacant.
The 23-year-old has also agreed to pay $50,000 of his purse to
Malignaggi, taking the "Magic Man's" total to $350,000.
