Rubio fails weight for Golovkin clash (video)

Phil Jay 18/10/2014

Marco Antonio Rubio forfeited $100,000 of his $450,000 purse as the Mexican tipped the scales at 161.8lbs for his middleweight title bout with Gennady Golovkin.

The 34 year-old also lost his interim WBC championship after failing to return following a stipulated two-hour weight-loss period and will not be carrying any belts from the ring tonight whatever the outcome.

Golovkin, 32, weighed in at 159lbs for what the WBA and IBO champion has called his ‘toughest test’ and will aim to inflict a fourth stoppage defeat on Rubio at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
