Default True or False: Pac & May could make

140 and compete at that weight effectively without drainung themselves??? I believe so,,, but 147 is a more comfortable weight for both, as they can both eat what they want and not cut much weight at all, and are good enough to be the top2 in that divisiony. There definitely small Welters compared to guys like PWill,Margarito,Tito,Oscar & Mayorga. Pac & May are about the same size as guys like Mathysse,Rios,Garcia.

On 24/7 against Ortiz May was scarfing down, eating drive thru n shit, he makes 147 EASY imo. A guy like May could go down to 140 easy i think, of course he would never do it tho

There in ring weights would suggest they could make 140.

I mean theres plenty of 140lbs'ers who weight more than either of them on fight night

Is this a trick question because Mayweather is 135lbs. He did lose 15lbs of muscle remember.

Surely you answered your own question, so why would they need to make 140.

Apart from getting KTFO by another guy weighing 143 has Manny looked bad at 147?

Has FMJ?

Marquez will be thrilled to know Mayweather can make 140.

I think Pacquiao probably still could, doubt he would want to though.

Mayweather can't IMO. I don't care what his in ring weight is, he has filled in to the WW division, whether he is a small WW or not. He would have to lose muscle to make 140lbs, and he probably couldn't make it comfortably.

Considering Floyd couldn't make 142 vs Marquez three years ago, I doubt it.

Neither could make 140 anymore.

Honestly at this point I think Manny may need to explore moving up, he's been fat and soft around the body, no buldging calfs, high trunks and all, his last 3 fights, and coming in at his highest weights, moving up he could exploit his speed and power advantage on bigger slower guys. Facing the smaller guys that can see and match his speed, and catch him with shots he doesn't see, has been his Achilles heel lately
