Stripped of WBO Super Featherweight Title

On July 20th, 2012, Broner weighed in at three and a half pounds over the 130-pound limit for his fight with Vicente Escobedo and was subsequently stripped of the title. After failing to make weight, Broner said, ""I'm young. I'm 22. I'm still growing. I just feel like it's time for me to go up. After this fight, there really wouldn't be a reason for me to stay. I'm just going to go up and give the lightweights hell."
