Should I or shouldn't I..............

I saw a recent pic of Mundine where he is in a boxing pose bare chested and to be honest his midsection looked slightly 'soft'. I don't mean fat or even De La Hoya middlewight soft. But surprisingly un-ripped for a guy who has been dropping weight consistently for a year.

He looked ripped 10 days ago....couldnt say he was even close to soft...3 weeks to go we will see he will be ripped for sure.

Perfect Jet - now try and name people that have moved down in weight and got stopped?

How about you give examples? I can't think of anyone. Certainly not 35 yr old super middleweights after 42 fights.

When you can't come up with a few meaningful examples, you may want to explain why that is.

So two examples where the results were disastrous.

Why is he attempting it? Is he a pioneer or something? LOL

If Anthony makes weight it will ONLY be because dodgy scales were used similar to the scales Arturo Gatti used when he fought Joey Gamache.

If he's made the drop gradually there will be little danger to him so along as he cuts right and uses the time between weigh in and fight for sensible replenishment. Oscar was a shell because his fight night weight mattered.

he could alway's fight cotto for a real belt in new york, vegas or l.a. if as a fan of his as you are, sure'ly you must want to see him fight on the big stage against a real p4p player. i spoke to victor ortiz at his training camp a week out from his fight against nate cambell at maddison square garden and he said it was a dream come true to fight there. i know the pretender makes good money fighting minno's but i would think that someone who true'ly thinks there the best they'd want to fight on the biggest stage ? kostya did !
