I don't think the weight matters at all. Pac doesn't look nearly as cut as he did in the past though.

Pac was 145 lbs in the ring with Marquez 4 years ago..He missed weight twice when he was at lower weights, and had to skip 115 and 118 because he couldn't make those weights anymore. He was a huge drainer, and is probably walking around at 155-160 lbs at this stage of his career.

I was surprised. He looked a little soft around the belly. I don't know how that will translate into the fight, if at all. I am still picking Manny in a hard-fought, clear decision. I think Manny will essentially be fighting a three-handed fighter here. I don't think Bradley intentionally uses the head, but he comes forward like a bull and that could mean cuts. I wouldn't be surprised at all if this fight ended in a technical decision, so it is important for both fighters to try to win the early rounds. Again, my guess is Pacquiao by a somewhat close, but clear decision.

This small man bullshit is long over cooked.
If he weighs in 155 upwards on fightnight, then you might be right. If he weighs below 150 on fightnight, then he still is a small WW.

Exactly, don't know about 155-160 but Pac has been a huge drainer throughout his career. He could have moved up in weight way earlier then he did and has weighed more then majority of the guys he fought at the lower weights on fight night.

Not at all. If he comes in heavier tonight lets say at 155, then yes I will be worried. Funny when DLH weigh below 147, a large amount of Pac fans didnt want to hear the excuses. Even when Cotto sacrifice his body at 145 and had marriage problems, again Pac fans didnt want to hear the excuses. Now Manny is weighing at 147 and it's already a concern. We are also blaming marriage problems for his last few performances, but ignore Cotto's marraiage problems and personal problems/lawsuits. I thought it was cramping that was affecting Manny's performance

I ask this because I just browsed through your posting history and have pages and pages of Pac/May comments. Even when you comment in other threads its about Mayweather.

Personally, I find it sad you let people influence your life in that way to the point it becomes an obsession to you.



Also in response to your post, Im not jealous of anyone who comes from nothing and achieves something. Credit to Pac. But I have a problem with boxers who cheat, using fake weight classes to write their history.
Pot meet kettle....
Your jaw has to lock from now and again from all the Floyd **** sucking you do on here. You mad at PAC cuz he didn't let you suck his Dick or something faggot?

This could be applied to everyone though. Lets not make 1 rules for Pac. Every opponent Pac faced in the lower weights were in or around the same weight as he was fight night. If he was a FW weighing in 148 fight night, that does not make him a WW, as WW's weigh near 160 fight night, something Pac has never come close to.

Pac is 147lbs? he was the lowest he was in years in his last fight. This can't be good. I actually thought he looked smaller in the training footage on 24/7 than what I remember him looking like in the fights before Marquez. Maybe he did eat alot before the weigh-in. I hope it doesn't make him too sluggish in there

I think this is their way of solving the cramping issue.
That is, he wouldn't even try to dehydrate to keep his fluids all night long.
I think he will still step on the ring at 148lbs.

Or simply because he has aged considerably and it has finally shown.

Look at the enormous size advantage he has. He was huge at those weights.

Yea, definitely not is norm. I won't know what it means until we see Pac and Bradley perform tonight.

Hopefully, this doesn't portend an ominous sign.

People actually believe the cramps excuse that he only seems to get on the night of the fights and never leading up to the fight? Only after a dissapointing performance does it ever get brought up.

I thought this. Maybe it was just because he was stood next to Bradley, who also seemed bigger despite weighing less.

BTW, regarding Pac's title win at LMW, I agree but it's not as dodgey as Canelo's.

I think Manny's ideal weight for a welterweight fight should be around 143 or 144 (though he could make 140 so easily IMO).

Does him weighing in bang on the limit suggest a tactical change to his training and physical attributes, or does it make you think that maybe he hasn't trained as hard as he could have?

Anyone else think this may be important, or am I reading too much into it here?

Worried ?


faggot.
