    Maske tipped the scales at 240+ between bouts. The man ate Spätzle off bitcches asses 24-7 while chugging Spaten from a child's skull. Debaucherous.

    Training camps often tend to be fat farms, or weight management operations. Whether it is a program of excessive weight loss or a program of losing weight with the intention of gaining it back...

    Boggles the mind why you’d do that to yourself when the outcome is possibly a life altering concussion and fading into obscurity.

    Canelo another that has done very large weight cuts.

    Mention of Gatti, cut insane weight and of course for Joey Gamache the guy got badly injured due to the weigh in not done properly.
    Gatti jumped on and off the sclaes was well over weight. HBO used to show the fighters weight on the night Gatti had piled back on 19lb and you looked at the pair Gatti looked at least two weight divisions higher than Gamache.

    Tony Bellew kept cutting to LHW 12st 7, walking around weight north of 14st, nearer 15.

    Made the jump to CW looked a better fighter at 200lb.

    It has been a myth at times for fighters cutting dangerously low, fight at a lower weight when for some it leaves them so drained it does and will catch up with you at some point. The older you get the more it gets not only harder but more dangerous for yourself.

    Don Curry cutting to WW he simply didn't live the life between fights near the end of his days at 147lb was dead on the scales and Honeyghan did a painful number on him.

    Forced to quit beaten and nothing left in a tank that he came in with it half empty anyway.

    Adrian Broner never looks like he walks around at anything inside 2 stone (28lb) at least of his fighting weight.

    Brandon Rios serial failures to make weight, multiple fights going ahead with him disrespecting the scales and opponent.

    Towards the end of his championship reign it's said that Eusebio Pedroza piled on weight between bouts.
