That's a pretty lame excuse - like there's never been fights in hot weather before? But who ever saw ropes like that before? Take the Holmes - Cooney outdoor megafight in Las Vegas, for instance. The temp was 90 not counting the bright tv lights on the ring. It must have been well over 100 in the ring. Why should heat make ropes sag anyway? They don't melt.
