However, the words weigh and weight roll off the tongue easier than mass. Furthermore, we call the fighting area the "ring," when it is in fact square and the hand covers "gloves," when they are technically mittens.
Eh, it's a distinction I wouldn't have bothered to make if people weren't talking as though what Freddie said wasn't accurate.
