U really think he cut only 10 lbs of liquids ? maybe during his 1st year or 2 at d weight , but not later . If he had , then d mid 180s was probably post diets and fully trained 2d max only left was 2 dehydrate .
Against Ruiz he did not have 2 diet nor dehydrate 2d max , he needed some mass so he wouldn't b pushed and bullied around more than what he could endure .
But anyway , even according 2 your post , which i disagree with , he only had 8lbs "2lose" when he had 2 come "back down" 2 lightheavyweight .
Tarver was more drained fighting Jones than Jones was fighting Tarver .
Also Tarver was/is older than Jones and was past drug abuse whereas Jones was not , plus Jones had more almost harmless "professional experience" than Tarver .
