Margarito struggling to make the weight?

As the battle for the vacant world light-middleweight championship approaching to its near, many reports are telling that the "Tijuana Tornado" is finding it hard to make the catch-weight.  

Alex Ariza, Pacquiao's conditioning trainer said on an interview with Manila Standard that prior to todays press-con he saw a devastated Margarito, "When I saw Margarito today when he did an interview, he look emaciated. He looked gaunt. It looked like he came from a run at 8 o’clock at night. This makes no sense to me."

Ariza was having his looks on Margarito trying to figure out his condition, "Margarito clearly is killing himself to make the weight, so now I’m even more confident that Manny is not going to have much of a problem,” said Ariza.

On November 13 (14 in the Philippines) Pacquiao and Margarito will battle it out for the 154lb crown, with a catch weight of 150lbs.  Penalty is about $500,000 with every excess pound during the official weigh-in.

Ariza added that “I would never bring my fighter within six or seven pounds four weeks away from a fight. I mean, that’s just absolute idiotic.”
