Walking around weight is nothing compared actual fight weight every fighter/trainer knows that.

1: We do have weight divisions and both of them weighed within the same division's limits. So, yeah, there's that.

2. Like it actually matters. If anything, Marquez will weigh a pound or 2 more come fight night.

Someone correct me if I am wrong. Let's say both come in at 150 tomorrow, PAC will have gained 3 lbs and jmm have gained 7. Why would jmm want to fluctuate that much? Wouldn't it be more beneficial for him to be as close to his fight night weight as possible. For conditioning reasons? What are the advantages to this?

Pacquiao has had his worst camp ever. He is going down.

But the weights here signify why we have weight divisions.

4 lbs is significant. Thats four additional lbs of lean mass for Pacquiao.

Pacquiao could'nt bully Marquez in fight 3 so he's decided to bulk up and take it to the smaller Marquez.


We'll see what transpires come tommorow night, but definitely, Pacquiao is at a weight advantage here. He'll be physically stronger than he was a year ago!
Pac looks like he's going with power....JMM looks like speed was his agenda for this fight. Pac is definitely heavier but he doesn't look bigger. It will be interesting to see what their fight night weights are.

.

The thing about fight night weights is that often times the fighter steps into them fully clothed and with shoes on.
You cant really go by fight night weight when the difference between that and the official weighin is 5 or 6 lbs.
Your clothes can pretty much weigh that much.

A fighter like Chavez Jr. who scales 20 lbs heavier the next day you know is not all weight from your clothes.

All thoughout the negotiations for fight 3, I kept saying Marquez stood a good chance still if the fight were be held at 140 lbs where both can make without a problem.

Pacquiao is said to have to overeat to weighin at 143-145, wonder how many PED's he had to overdose on to hit the scales at 147 lbs and look the way he did.

Pacquiao's weight gain is likely in his legs. The legs that will carry him and make him withstand the straight rights by Marquez he was leary of last time.

If Pacquiao is able to just walk through Marquez shots without feeling the effects, I think it will be safe to assume it will be because of the extra weight he's carrying he did'nt carry last time.
Last time Pacquiao was leary of getting hit, he was feeling Marquez' shots.
I'll I'm saying is lets see if thats the case this time.

40 years old and being outweighed by 4 lbs of lean mass are not excuses, they're fact!

Having said that, that 40 year old lightweight may very well propinate Pacroid another schooling, and then what will Roach and all the Pactards come up with!

A schooling and at Roach's insistance the fight be held at the full 147 lbs weight limit! It would be classic!

There is a weight limit of 147 Lbs. As long as neither boxer excides that weight. No one has any right to compline.

I think it's proportionate to their fight purses.

Poochiao - $26M, JMM - $6M

Poochiao - 147 lbs., JMM - 143 lbs.

No anomalies there.
