I don't know...at 5'10" he isn't exactly tiny, and his career low is 158.5 as a pro.

In the amateurs he already did quite a bit of climbing, from light welterweight in his teens all the way up to middleweight by age twenty - where he's remained for 10 years including his 6 since turning pro.

I mean, if there was PBF or Canelo money anted up I'm sure he'd make the effort to drain down - but for anything less it would be ill-advised IMO.

He isn't a huge middleweight, but he's comfortable. In fact, people have been saying for years that he might eventually be 168-bound (where he'll definitely be on the smaller side, but may still be effective if his power carries up and the extra lbs don't slow him down).
