Out of 4 key fights at 160lb limit (where weight is known) he lost three and won only one fight (over welterweight Walker). And I heard stories that making middleweight limit for Walker fight hurt him somewhat. I'm certain that had he attempted to fight the above key fights while weighing below 160lb, it'd hurt him also, he needed energy for his style, and it would probably add up several more losses to his record.
