Andres Gutierrez has been suspended by the World Boxing Council, which has launched an immediate investigation into just why he arrived at the official weigh in for his fight in Las Vegas, a whopping 11 pounds over the super featherweight limit!
During the recent WBC Annual Convention, a fight between No. 1 super featherweight contender Oscar Valdez of Mexico versus Andres Gutierrez No. 5 was approved, as a final eliminator to determine the mandatory challenger of the division.
However, during the weigh in, Andres “Jaguar” Gutierrez, arrived an astonishing 11 lbs. above the limit’s division. For this embarrassing and extraordinary action, Andres will no longer be part of this eliminator match and the WBC will start an immediate investigation, as he claimed to be inside the permitted limits at the 30, 15 and 7 days pre-weigh ins.
“What just happened in Las Vegas is of extreme concern. Gutierrez weighs in 11 pounds over the weight limit in the WBC final elimination scheduled for super feather. Gutiérrez is officially suspended by the WBC and we will initiate a thorough investigation of the facts.” Mauricio Sulaiman, President of the WBC, stated Oscar Valdez was 129.8 lbs. during the official weigh in.
