Default what fighters where especially large for their weight class

arturo gatti at super feather weight

gerald mccellan looked pretty much like a light heavy weight when he went into the ring at super middle weight.

jorge arce and the late diego corrales looks pretty big too in their respective weights

Marvin Hagler looked like he would weigh 200lbs.

Tszyu seemed extraordinarily broad and barrel chested.

Forrest springs to mind, as does Hearns back in his early days.

Holy at Cruiserweight.....

Wonder who's going to be the first to bring up Butterbean?

Mark Breland and Thomas Hearns spring to mind. Both were welterweights who stood at 6'2" and 6'1" respectively.

Gatti @ 130 and 135. Even 140, and when he "weighed in" at 141 against Gamache.

DLH @ 130 and 135. Pretty big @ 140.

Corrales @ 130 and 135. Castillo @ 135. Clottey @ 147.
