Default Re: Would You Approve Of Floyd-Sergio At 152?

Day of fight weight for Mayweather against Ortiz was 150lbs. Day of fight for Martinez against Barker was 165lbs. Thus if the fight is at 152, Mayweather is already fine, no sacrifice while Martinez has to loss 13lbs to make the 152 fight weight. A 37 year old fighter losing 13lbs is far more effected by such a weight loss than a 27 year old. The Martinez that has suddenly become so popular made his fame at 160-165, he is not the 147-154lbs fighter of the past nor the one that would show for a present fight at 152lbs.
