Default Name fighters who couldn't be successful...

in the weightclass above which they operate. I don't mean fighters who are clearly overweight and shouldn't be in the weightclass they are in anyway. I mean fighters who have a style that means they would struggle in the weightclass above. Clearly, Ricky Hatton is a fighter who struggles as a welterweight. Another example might be Juan Diaz. Yes, he's podgy, but in any case his style may well mean he would struggle at 140lbs.

So people, let's name some one-division wonder boxers (and say why they couldn't be successful in the division above).

Judah. There is no way he would share the success he had at WW if he went to 154lbs

Judah already moved up a division, he was a light welterweight.

His power might actually improve if he didn't have to come in so weight drained.
