Aleem, Nicholson Hit Scales For Bouts In Miami, OK!

Immanuwel Aleem and Demond Nicholson weighed in for their bouts later tonight at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, OK.  Aleem and Hugo Centeno, Jr. both weighed in at 158.8 pounds for their10-round contest.

The WBC has made it clear that this bout is not for the WBC Silver Middleweight title.  Aleem, who won that belt in January, has apparently been stripped of the title because of inactivity.

Nicholson (17-2-1, 16 KO's) weighed in at 167.6 pounds for his eight -round contest against veteran Josue Obando of Guadalajara, Mexico.  Obando came in three pounds over the super middleweight limit at 171.4 pounds.  Obando (15-16-2, 12 KO's) faces a Beltway Boxer for the third time in his career.  Obando lost by fourth-round disqualification to Travis Reeves on June 17 in Baltimore, MD.  D'Mitrius Ballard won a six-round unanimous decision over Obando in June of 2015 in Philadelphia, PA.
