Corley Weighs 136 1/2 In Mexico; Irby Drops Decision In Venezuela!
DeMarcus Corley and his opponent, Nery Saguilan, weighed 136 1/2 for their 10-round bout tonight in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Apparently, the bout is for Saguilan's WBC Fecarbox Lightweight title.
In amateur action, Tyrek Irby lost his opening bout at the AMBC Championships in Maiquetia, Venezuela. Irby dropped a 3-0 decision to Canadian champion Arthur Biyanslanov at 141 pounds. If Biyanslanov goes on to win the championship in the 141-pound weight class, Irby can still qualify for the AIBA Men's World Championships in Qatar in October.
