    I thought he rehydrated to a higher weight cause he started at light heavy in his career but then boiled down to middleweight.
    Didnt know he kept his weight so low consistently, even after weigh ins. Thanks for your response!

    According to Hopkins he basically ate junk food like cheeseburgers in prep for that first fight which is why he lost. Which is pretty understandable, I doubt prison food is all that great, bet he went on a real binge after he got out of prison and was eating all the foods he was denied, hence why he turned pro as a light heavy when in reality he was always a middleweight.

    Exactly right. BH had crazy discipline once he was out the joint.

    Imo this is Bhop's greatest asset; rigid (ruthless) personal discipline. In this, I think he rivals Marverlous.

    Monzon is a notch above Hopkins, I like Carlos by clear UD in a not so easy fight although rounds 13-15 could be a hurdle for Bernard
