Let me go further and say that he came in well over the Heavyweight limit.

I know. Crazy. Why? Because it doesn't exist.

How could have Floyd done it then? I say magic. I know from an insider source that Roger Mayweather is actually a evil shaman/warlock who uses his evil powers to make Floyd win.



Spooky shit.

I said he came in as a middleweight. I mistyped when i said over middleweight limit, i should've written "at" middleweight limit.
There is no questino, he came in over 154, which would've made him a middleweight. The size difference was obvious.
Whether he was 157 or 160, because he probably was, we just don't know because he refused to weigh in, his actions were unethical in that fight.

If you trust Floyd was at the proper weight, then use the same logic you do for Manny taking test. Tell Floyd to just step on the scale and prove it.
But no, you make excuses.

So he weighed 154-157 against Marquez.
Yet against a bigger stronger opponent like Ortiz,he weighs 150?

Those 2 lbs accounted for almost 0 in the ring....also-he didnt cheat...he abided by the state athletic commission rules...he did not make the contracted weight however.

And then refused the longstanding custom of weighing in again the day of the fight.

Forget what he did against anyone else. Hold Floyd to teh same standards you hold Pac too. Just step on the scale.

When the deal was done to fight Mayweather, he had about two months to get ready to fight two weight classes above anything he'd ever fought at before. And he'd only fought at 135 twice. Then he ended fighting a guy that came in as a middleweight.

The two fights aren't comparable. Against Pac, he had 5 months to train and was already in shape because of his preparation for Ramos.

2 months? You have no recollection of the build up do you?

He had all the regular build up plus the fact that the fight was delayed due to Mayweathers rib injury. He had loads of time.

He chose to use that time without a proper strength trainer and drinking piss. Hardly Floyds Fault.

And according to The Ring magazine,there was a grand total of 4 lbs difference on fight night
