Via Andy Lee Press Release – June 15, 2012
Controversy has broke out after the weigh-in of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Andy Lee world title bout in El Paso, Texas over the gloves for the fight. A representative for the Texas Commission refused a request made by Team Lee to have Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. gloves weighed to ensure they met the 10 oz regulations and conditions for the world title fight. Freddie Roach, Chavez’s trainer also would not agree to Team Lee’s request either. Team Lee were stunned as were many boxing observers and they could not understand what the problem was.
