Currently rated #11 by the IBF, Orozco has struggled mightily to make weight in the recent past. Last September he had a high profile HBO fight canceled due to him being SEVEN pounds overweight. The year before he passed out trying to make 140 and had an HBO Latino bout canceled. However, he hit 140 right on the nose at Thursday’s weigh-in. His bout against Martin Honorio is a rematch. Orozco won the first fight by decision.
