Challenger frantically rushes to workout in sweatsuit as he’s given two hours to drop excess weight
CHRIS EUBANK JNR might have retained his IBO super middleweight title without throwing a punch after Arthur Abraham missed weight.
The challenger was 1lbs 13oz over the limit when he hit the scales.
And he was dramatically given two hours to drop the excess weight – leading to him frantically rushing from his nearby hotel in a sweatsuit.
If he fails then the fight will still go ahead but it will not be for the belt.
Abraham will also be fined from his purse.
Abraham’s promotion team tried desperately to blag their way through.
They claimed the ring was uneven for the official weigh-in.
A second was measurement was taken on solid ground but the Armenian hard man was still over.

There was a brief war of words between Robert Smith the head of the British boxing board of control and Kalle Sauerland, Abraham’s promoter.
Smith told the matchmaker to stop wasting time complaining and hurry up helping his man lose the poundage.
Abraham finally dashed off to don a sweat-suit and workout to shave off the last bit of timber.
Abraham has until 3.40pm to make the cut.
