Heather Hardy missed weighed for her anticipated flyweight bout with fellow boxer Ana Julaton. She was a fraction over the bout’s 126-pound limit – officially coming in at 126.25 pounds.
Hardy was under the impression that she made weight after she got off the scale and began rehydrating. Only then was she told she’d missed she’d actually weighed in above the flyweight division’s 126-pound limit. Though this unfortunate miss was accidental and minuscule, Hardy will surrender 20% of her fight purse to Julaton
