Brandon Rios doesn't make weight
NEW YORK -- Brandon Rios, unable to make 135 pounds at Friday's weigh-in, lost his lightweight title on the eve of his fight with England's John Murray.
The fight, the co-feature on the Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito II undercard at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night (HBO PPV, 9 ET, $54.95), will still go on.
