I agree Chagaev should lose about 10 pounds. I do think body type has soemthing to do with it. Chagaev he is compactly built. He does not have long arms or legs. In fact they are both short. When you built like he is, if you add weight in the form of fat or muscle, you aren't going to look like Klitschko.
