    If Alvarez don't make 160 at 3pm there won't be a fight. He already missed the catchweight he likes to fight at by 1.4 pounds.

    I'm not sure that Alvarez made the weight. Looks like he just paid Hatton off. He can't even make weight for his first title fight? This wouldn't even be an issue if he were facing an actual junior middleweight contender for title. Disgusting.

    Meanwhile, JMM just ripped him on Televisa for failing to make weight in his first title fight after all the hype brewing behind him.

    Pretty good fight so far. I agree with Lederman's card having it even 3-3. I expected more from Broner after all the shit he's been talking. Ponce doing as much as he can but he seems too small for 130. He can't hurt Broner.

    Fuck Broner. He's clearly bigger and faster and is still bitching out throwing mayweather pot shots. More concerned with his zero in the loss column than being an exciting fighter. I hope he loses.

    HBO's Harold Lederman scored the fight 6 rounds to 4 in favor of Ponce De Leon. The crowd seems to agree that De Leon deserved the decision.

    Adrien Broner is awarded a unanimous decision. Scorecards read 96-94 (twice), 99-91. The crowd boos the decision.
