Of All The Fighters To Miss Weight...MIKEY GARCIA?!

Garcia Lopez weighin 130614 001aOf all the fighters who you thought would have an issue on the scale, did you ever think MIKEY GARCIA would have a scail fail? Well, the impossible happened today, as Garcia, of the Fighting Garcia family, drew gasps when the scale read 128 pounds the day before his scheduled featherweight title defense against Juan Manuel Lopez (above right, with Mikey, in Chris farina-Top Rank photo), at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, and on HBO.

Garcia had two hours to get to 126, but wouldn't try and do the cut...so a cut was taken out of his check. He handed over six figures to Team JuanMa, to even the playing field. JuanMa can win the WBO featherweight pound crown Garcia held, and if Mikey wins, the title is vacant. JuanMa was 125 1/4.

Readers, your thoughts on the matter? One trainer I talked to blamed the spate of scale fails on the presence of strength and conditioning coaches, because power is taken from the trainer, who now isn't overseeing all aspects of training camp.

Radam G says:

The trainer knows every aspect of what is going on. Missing the weight by a couple of pounds was designed. Mickey has new wuzzy sharks to fry at the pseudoweight of 130lbs. JuanMa probably knew from the jump what was up. But his @$$ still got pumped up and greedy and tried to hoodwink MG out of extra cash.

The fight is on. JuanMa is all uppity and high-@$$ tone. I'm changing my call. By round four, he will be gone. So hard dat switch-and-bait muthasucka is gonna fall. Holla!

This is just wow, you somehow blamed JuanMa for Mikey being lazy.

Radam G says:

JuanMa's chance of winning is _________________________________________! He is going to be really dazy and hazy. Then Mikey G is gonna lower da boom! Holla!
