Default Would You Approve Of Floyd-Sergio At 152?

Some say that 150 is ok. Some say that it should be at 160. Others say that it should be at 155 or 156 for the MW title. Most say that the perfect weight is 154. What would you feel though if it was at 152?

To me, I would be perfectly fine with it. Sergio has fought at WW for a good amount of time, then moved to 154 and stayed for a very long time. He didnt move up due to weight problems, he moved up to get the bigger fights. He's had like 5 fights at MW and has weighed in at 157 or 158 for every single fight. Alot of MW's are like 170+ in the ring but Sergio is always like 165, just like Ortiz and other big WW's.

If he's weighing in at 157-158 then there is no way that youre going to convince me that he cant get down to 154 again like some on here try to say. I think he can comfortably go down to 152. Floyd would be going up 5 pounds from 47 to 52 and Sergio would be coming down about 5 or 6 pounds.

Sergio would still be strong there. Floyd is small, despite what some try to say. If he didnt show his weight against Ortiz then alot of people wouldve still sworn that he was over 160 like they did for his last 2 fights. Nacho had every reason to boost up Floyd's weight after JMM lost every round & Steward who hates Floyd both said they felt that Floyd was about 152 against JMM. He wasnt no bigger then that and he probably was smaller.

Now you could easily argue that Floyd went to 154 for Oscar so he should do it again for Sergio but thats people who just dont accept reality. Oscar was the man and called the shots. Floyd wouldve fought him at 168 if needed but now Floyd is in charge. You get that leverage and youre going to use it. Dont get me wrong, I would rather the fight be at 154 or higher but I wont complain if its lower, espically if its just by those 2 pounds because I think Sergio can make it comfortably. I hear guys say all the time they cant do something but then it changes.

When Shane went to 154, he said he was too big for WW, cant make it anymore, and would never fight there again. Then years later he came back and stayed there while looking strong. Sergio can get down the same way. I also still say that theyre waiting for the Hopkins fight to end before they announce it. GBP just doesnt want this news to overshadow that fight. It could hurt sales and it would also upset Hopkins which isnt hard to do

Sergio needs to stop being a bitch and fight opponents his size. If he thinks he's the same size as Floyd then fight him at 47.

More and more FLOMOS are turning PRO-CATCHWEIGHT these last few days. I wonder why.

No way, 154 should be the lowest.

Yes, this fight would be better if there is no catch weight. If Floyd fight him at 154, you could still label Floyd as a *****.

Floyd aint going higher than 154 and Sergio no lower than 154, makes the most sense right there.. Both have fought and won there.

thats the best option IMO as well, for both guys. Serge isn't a natural 160 either so 155 works.
