Re: how much difference does 1 pound make in boxing?
How longs a piece of string, there are other factors:
1. Did the fighter who didn't make weight, simply not drain himself as much? Or did he drain himself more, who was the more drained?
2. Did he not make 147 because fully hydrated he's 165lbs and his 147lb opponent is only 147lbs fully hydrated? If so he has a big advantage once he rehydrates if he hydrates himself properly
3. How well can he use his physical advantages?
