    WBC Cruiserweight limit is 190.

    Yes, starting with this fight. And this fight isn't the reason why; Sulaiman was talking in fall of 2020 about making this change and went on record saying that Makabu had personally said he was comfortable making 190.

    ...but 190 isn't 180.

    Canelo will come in weighing 180, Makabu will weigh in high 90s or 200. Makabu isn't very big.

    And? Canelo is not a cruiserweight at all but you are exaggerating his size. He's a short 5'7 guy that is solidly build. Nothing extraordinary.

    Canelo entered the ring near 180 when he weights 154.

    Pac rehydrates 1-3 pounds and walks around his 150. Clenelo? Who knows. 15? 20? Has he ever looked like the physically weaker man in any of his fights?

    All but Marquez has mentioned their size advantage over Pac in the last plus decade. I don't hear any of Clenelo's opponents saying their size will be a factor/advantage.

    Not the same situation. Sorry.

    I doubt that. Only Chavez Jr was doing such ridiculous cutting.
    Canelo came in low 170s at MW against Golovkin.

    That's purely water weight. And he wouldn't be coming in at the limit, which is what all fighters tend to do to not be at a disadvantage.

    It's still a catchweight. Main problem with catchweights is the limiting of your opponent. Any catchweight of any kind is lame, specially for a title.

    Wrong. Go look up Canelo's in ring weights while he was at 154 & 155. Anything over 175 is cruiser.

    Im pretty sure HE said he was going to come in around 180 to maintain his speed. Lol
