Also they dont have to worry about making weight.
Imagine if Hamed made his comeback what would he be fighting at 140 or 135? He would have been up against the likes of cotto hatton mayweather casamayor corrales ect. in those divisions and would have been brutalized. They would have had to put him in with tomato cans to be successful in those weights.
