Very interesting, will read up on this now. I remember reading before that it can boost brain power and intelligence as well. Here it is: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/3145223.stm

The main thing is the water weight, if you have a couple of kgs to play with then I think it's a good idea, plus as the poster above me mentioned there is a little bit of research that indicates that it might help prevent concussion.
I'm more or less on the limit for my division, but that's off-season, without cardio. My plan is gain maybe a kg of lean muscle in the next few months, then lose a kg of fat (well capable of this, know from experience) around the time my big fights come up.

A bad experience can be very off-putting.
