It was high drama in Singapore last night as welterweight title challenger Luis Santos failed to make weight for his rematch against ONE welterweight champion Ben “Funky” Askren.
Santos came in almost 2kg over the required weight, causing a stir in the Askren camp who branded Santos an “amateur Jabronis”.
The fight is now under negotiation and Santos will have another chance to make his weight early this morning.
Santos missed. My demand is that Santos makes 190lbs tomorrow or else the fight is off.
