    Examples:

    Danny, Spence, Crawford, and Thurman are huge welterweights, but I think they would be considered smaller at super welterweight.

    Crawford has a 74'' reach and he was coming in as high, if not higher, as 157 when he was campaigning down at light-welterweight 3.5 years ago and has according to his S&C coach ''easily put on 10lbs of muscle'' since then.

    Here he is weighing in the 160s-170s so minimum the late 160s

    Still looking very lean and mean and barely any different to how he does on fight night at 147 if any different at all



    So he's got to be coming in, and this is a conservative estimate, at least at 162lbs

    IIRC, Spence has come in at 156, 160 and 162 for a catchweight bout a few pounds over the welter limit

    Thurman is about 160

    Egis is about 160

    Horn was 155 for Crawford

    Khan and Benavidez wouldn't have been more than 160 when they fought Crawford IMO
