According to Jeff Zimmerman and Miguel Maravilla of, Mikey Garcia has lost his WBO belt on the scales.

Juan Manuel Lopez can still win the vacant WBO title with a win over Garcia on Saturday night.

In an interview with Top Rank‘s Crystina Poncher, Lopez sounded unhappy and had the following to say:

He wasn’t very professional today by not making the weight. People were saying I was done, I was finished. People were saying I wasn’t going to make the weight. I made the weight with no problem and tomorrow I’ll show you what I can do.

Numerous outlets have reported that Garcia looked drained today and trying to make weight would have left him at a serious disadvantage.

Do you think Mikey Garcia will be a different fighter tomorrow night because of the weight issues?
