Friday Update From Louie Burke From Torreon, Mexico

Great news! Nacho Huizar and the WBA are going to make Austin's fight for the WBC continental belt, which should be good for a world ranking. The fight is a scheduled 12 rounder.

All the guys looked good at wiegh-ins and made weight fairly easy. The weights were called out in kilos, so I didn't get the exact weights, just that they were under the max.

The guys were at the weigh-ins at 1:00 and by 1:15 the wiegh-ins started and by 1:45 they were finished and were off to eat a pasta meal. Why can't it be this easy in the states?
The guys had thier medicals done last night, so the weigh-ins were the fastest most organized I've ever been too.

As I write the guys are all in bed napping. There is another promotional event scheduled for tonight from 6 to 8 but we may hang back and rest.

Thanks for the support
