BREAKING NEWS: Horn overweight during first weigh in!!

WBO Champion comes in overweight

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

There was a shock on the scales in Las Vegas, Nevada this evening as WBO welterweight champion, Jeff 'The Hornet' Horn weighed in at 148 pounds for his second title defence against the former lineal lightweight champion and undisputed super-lightweight champion, Terence 'Bud' Crawford. 

Horn stripped off to weigh in again but came in at half a pound over the 147-pound welterweight limit. He will now have two hours to lose the final half a pound. Horn claims that he was surprised that he had missed weight. Horn claims the scales in his room were showing him weighing comfortably under 147 pounds. Though it must be said he did look nervous on his weigh to the scales. 

Crawford weighed in at 146.5 pounds.
