Not that I disagree with it while fighting. If you're light for your division and can't cut to the division below it's useful to get bigger.
That's true, but when you're on it and hitting pads, sparring and doing a lot of boxing specific training and sweating crazy but with the creatine and the added water weight...? Nah, it's pure protein for me.
But you're right though, I reckon you could get away with that... but doesn't it take a couple of weeks to load up and stuff?
