I think that Tom Lawlor summed up Cynthia Calvillo’s weigh-in gaffe this morning pretty accurately on his Twitter. “Hard to watch part is that they are carting her out to the weigh-ins like she’s a drugged animal on display at a zoo.”
Tom Lawlor couldn’t be more right. Calvillo’s weigh-in was like watching someone in hospice care trying to get up to use the bathroom. It’s just is not okay. Ultimately, she missed weight, however, she is still cleared to fight.
We live in a time when people have been pulled from cards for having fake boobs or chapped lips. Yet, somehow, Calvillo looking like an extra from The Walking Dead is allowed to go 3 5-minute rounds of face punching tomorrow. I certainly am not the first person to say it today, but this is a bad idea.
Check out the video. I assure you, it is a hard watch.
