Default If Manny can make 140 easily why is this fight with Jmm not at 140 for his title?

Why is this fight at 147???whats the point??why not have it at 140 for Jmm's title?

A lot of people were asking the same question last time around.

The answer is Manny's the bigger draw and his team takes advantage of that at the negotiating table.

Why cut the weight for a useless title? Be comfortable and eat what you want.

manny usually fights at 147 and is the bigger name so he made marquez come up..

they tried 144 and they coupled it with marquez's age and they still got beat

they are trying to make it as hard as possible for marquez but in typical marquez style the harder you push him the harder he works (or outworks) you

If Marquez is smart he'll come in at 142 again and won't worry about what weight Pacquiao comes in at. He looked good at that weight last time. I don't think putting on excess bulk will help him any.

Because it'll scared Mayweather away even more and Pac doesn't want that. They'll be fighting closer to where Mayweather weight is right now...135. Mayweather did lose 15lbs remember .
