The division under it is only seven pounds under it and the division over it is only seven pounds over it. He's halfway to junior middleweight if he's a day over 25 but Mayweather's way older than 25. Where are you getting these numbers? Butterbean? STFU about Butterbean already! Butterbomo noob!


Yes but 3/4lbs is nothing when most of the guys at 147 are weighing 160ish give or take in the ring.

He probably does weight 160 in the ring. Look at the video i posted before from the ortiz fight. He looks a similar size to ortiz who is know to be a massive weight cutter (i remember seeing he was 168 for one of his fights)

Are you kidding me? He looked bigger than Cotto. But then again, Cotto is a midget.

The Flomos don't stop lol
Floyd is a fully fledged welterweight and up there with the bigger guys in the division. He weighs in on fight nights over 155, the guy couldn't even make 144 for Marquez! If he fought at 140 now he would be weight draining himself

Check out Leonard v duran, Floyd looks a lot bigger than Leonard...he looked bigger than Cotto even

Let the Flomos continue perpetuating the lie

There's no reason to "guess" or go by "looks", he weighed 150lbs...

its because the esb forums are sad.

they truly need a penalty box here to keep idiots out of the general population.

floyd is 5'8" which is historically a normal height for welterweights but is small for jmw's(normally 5'9" to 5'11").

He isn't a big weight cutter (smart move for durability and longevity), so he doesn't balloon up in weight after the weigh-ins, but he's as strong as anybody right now at 147.

The same short super middleweight overpowered a big middleweight who is now a small light heavyweight who lost to a big light heavyweight who fought at heavyweight as an amateur and will probably finish his career at cruiserweight fighting small heavyweights and big light heavyweights.

So yeah, Floyd is normal sized welterweight.

Mayweather was weighed by HBO. He was 151.

I was even off by a lb.

I remember Pejevan saying how much bigger Mayweather looked than Ortiz and how he must be well over 165lbs.

No such thing as lazy, just old. The older one gets the bigger his body gets too. There's no way in hell he can make 140 now after 9 years at 147+ otherwise he would have made the 143 catchweight with Marquez and avoided paying the $300k penalty.
