Molina can’t make weight, fight vs Crawford now for no title

Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. – Challenger John Molina failed to make weight for his 140-pound fight against unified champion Terence “Bud” Crawford, meaning Molina won’t be able to fight for a title Saturday night at CenturyLink Center.

Molina (29-6, 23 knockouts) weighed in at 144 pounds Friday. He had two hours to get down to 140 and came in at 143.4 pounds on his second weigh-in.

Crawford (29-0, 20 knockouts) weighed in at 139.6.

If Molina upsets Crawford, the WBO and WBC junior welterweight titles would become vacant.
