Default Shouldnt Rees Be Fighting At 130-135lbs?

Hes only 5ft 3 and not exactly ripped.
Hes pretty trim for a guy in the street,but for a boxer hes fleshy.He should drop down.
Anyone agree or said this before?

Yep he should lose weight and move down in weight. I do not ever think he will be up at championship quality fights again but I hope he gets a chance to come back and fight for domestic honours. Of course this depends on his and what he wants. We may see him retire now.

In a match up against our super feathers I think he would fair ok. You have got to give a former world belt holder at light welter a fairly good chance of beating Johanesson, Foster Jr, Burns and Femi. Also I think he would drive Mitchell into a war and possibly pick up a win.

AAA vs Ree's would see me picking Arthur but that coulds all change depending on AAA performance against Guzman.

Ree's if he does try to carry on will prob fight at lightweight next and it could be against "no balls" in a SN glamour fight. Ree's is built for hypejob but he would get a decent pay day and Khan would get to fight another dwarf former world champ with no punch.

130-135 pounds would be perfect for rees. he has no real advantage at LW he isnt particuarly strong or tall and he lost easily on saturday and didnt look comfortable IMO

Yeh also he could make very good money fighting domestic guys at Super Feather, Arthur, Harrison and Mitchell would all be reasonalby big fights, as woud Amir Khan.

i aint sure he can make it.

he needs a dietician to take a close look at him. i am not sure whether enzo would wear that though...

in fact, bar joe, most of the calzaghe camp are a little fleshy pryce is never cut right up, docherty looked fleshy, macca always does, no way should gary lockett be a middle either....
maybe there is something in the welsh water?
or maybe its that burger van they always use for interviews outside calzaghes place

Bradleys penchant for the high life is why his risen through the weights so quickly. I remember when Pryce fought Peter Buckley at 35. A year later he was up at light middle. The guys just to inconsistent. Ree`s is pretty much the same. The guy used to fight at 26 and now his at 140?

I think its the lifestyle/culture of where they are all from. My partner is from the Welsh Valleys and when i have gone down with her to see her family there is shit all to do, apart from go to the pub or working mens clubs. That could be a reason maybe?
