The WBC has initiated a new rule to protect boxers and avoid massive overnight weight gains. The boxers must now weigh themselves in the dressing room of the venue where the fight will take place. Although it’s an unofficial weigh-in, it must be done to monitor that the fighter doesn’t exceed the division limit by more than 10 percent.
The WBC started this policy during last Saturday’s super featherweight title clash between champion Miguel “Alacrán” Berchelt and Miguel “Mickey” Román.
