    Why do you think there was a rehydration clause in the contract for his fight with Canelo?

    To limit rehydration. I'm still curious as to where this number came from as it's constantly thrown around like it's a matter of fact

    To address the elephant in the room Briscoe drew with Monzon ( And lost to him ) in addition to losing to Hagler. Mix in a GGG opponent, and you know what to expect.

    I like Briscoe ( Who was 5'8" tall ), but he lost 18 times and drew 5.....to far lesser men than Jacobs, so who couldn't Jacobs win here? I sort of like Jacobs on points.

    You see Jacobs as being a level above Briscoe?

    Briscoe - different breed - Too tenacious for the tentative Jacobs.

    how many of Briscoe's 18 losses and 5 draws do you think would beat Jacobs? Just curious.

    Man_Machine, I don't know. I don't care.

    Translation, I'm not up for a debate with you Mendoza and you points with the truth your side are too much. Okay, I get it. No one should do what they don't want to. - Mendoza

    Jacobs said he was 173-175 against GGG. GGG's trainer claimed around 180. I'd be inclined to agree with Jacobs.

    If Jacobs had near 100 fights back then at 175 , he'd have double digit loses as well.

    I'd be inclined to believe a man knows what he weighs as well. 175 sounds about right people throwing around 185-190 sound stupid imo

    Well Hagler, Monzon, Valdes, Griffith and Rodriguez would.
