TMZ Sports spoke with
Audie Attar after the dramatic weigh-in Friday morning when Lee initially weighed in 1 pound over the 155 lb limit ... putting the fight in jeopardy.
Officials gave Lee an hour to lose the extra pound -- and if he didn't, Tony could have opted out of the fight.
But Attar says Ferg wasn't about to let Lee off the hook that easy -- "If Kevin wanted (to) move forward, Tony definitely did."
Ultimately, Lee made weight ... and the fight is on.
BIG money for a trilogy fight.
