Default Re: Floyd Mayweather - How will it end?

I swear, the significance of weight is completely blown out of proportion due to the ridiculous emphasis that is now placed on receiving a loss on your record. It's used as an excuse so much ('i just didn't feel strong enough carrying this extra 7lbs . . . [despite weighing the same in the ring as I do every fight and not having to dehydrate so much]) that the idea of a fighter moving from 147 to 160 makes a fans head explode.

All this does is justify a fighter staying in is weight class and not taking the same challenges that would have been expected of them 25 years ago.
