Golovkin, Walters, Donaire Make Weight; Rubio Overweight

WBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin weighed in at 159 pounds and challenger Marco Antonio Rubio came in over the 160 pound limit at 161.8 pounds.

Saturday’s matchup will take place at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

Rubio was given two hours to make 160. He didn’t bother to show up. Consequently, Rubio loses his interim champion status and will most likely fork over a decent portion of his purse.

Other weights are listed below:

Nonito Donaire (125.6) vs. Nicholas Walters (125.6)

Edwin Rodriguez (174.8) vs. Azea Augustama (175.8)

Marcos Reyes (160.8) vs. Abraham Han (160.4)

Jaime Ocegueda (139.6) vs. Moris Rodriguez (138.8)

Walter Sarnoi (123.4) vs. Sergio Najera (125.2)

Ruslan Madiev (136.6) vs. Oscar Rojas (135)
