Seriously. I noticed I had some DEFINITE might at 270, but my god, hauling that frame around and launching triphammer punches with it got exhausting fast.

I could box 50 rounds in a day in my 230 pounds frame. 7 years and 40 pounds later, I got the 4, and then I was in trouble. Not tired, not winded, IN TROUBLE. I spent the entire fight resting, trying to summon the energy to go for broke near the end.

Fighters; Don't put yourself in that situation.
Did you manage to do better against Foreman when trying to stand your ground at the higher weight?
