Default espn's around the horn: "vargas cancelled fight b/c he was 100 lbs overweight!"

Not only that, but he would have known WAY in advance that he couldn't make that weight in time.

100lbs - **** - I don't believe you believed that.

So their saying he's walking around at at least 260lbs. I've heard a lot of bs rumors - but this one is just crazy.

i think what he said was that he was 100 lbs overweight and couldnt get down in time, not that he was 100 lbs overweight on the day of the fight

I'm still curious to how much he was weighting at his heaviest. I still find it hard to believe that he was even as high as 220lbs or 230lbs. He didn't even look that heavy in some of the interviews that he did in promoting the fight. He looked like he was at a good weight at the press conference when they got into their little bs fight. I just can't see 100lbs.

From the sound of it there was no timeframe attached to that; I would take it to mean 100lbs overweight prior to camp. Which is pretty much insurmountable; and if that was the case he should have made it known far earlier.

here is a pic of fernando blown up. I don't know if it's a 100 pounds but he is obviously heavy at this point. i can't find the pic of this night while standing, it would have been good because he clearly looks 225-230 at the very least. oh well.

Well he admitted that at the beginning of the year he was about 260 pounds, I still cant believe he let himself get that big.

well that could explain it, and from that picture that was posted of vargas, he looks like he is definately up there in weight. Damn for a boxer that is pathetic, I mean even if he stopped training 4 a while he woulda gained weight, but damn 2 gain that much he must have been eating all kind of stuff, evrything in sight rather

OK - with that picture - I give up. You'll win!

He's big as hell. That's a damn shame. Mayorga can talk all the **** he wants.

I don't want to think about Vargas after boxing. He will eat himself up to 300 pounds if he's not careful.
