Dominic Wade weighed in at 161 pounds for his eight-round contest Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. Wade's opponent, Roberto Ventura, had difficulties coming close to the 160 pound limit the bout was contracted for.
Ventura was 168 when he first hit the scales. After some negotiations, the contracted weight was moved to 163. Ventura got closer but still weighed in at 166. The bout will still go on and will be part of the Showtime Extreme broadcast that begins at 7 PM ET.
