    A cruiser who came in 3 pounds under the SMW limit.

    You’re something else.

    Who said he was? Were you there?

    And its what they did anyway back then, senseless stuff such as Tyson starving himself to lose 20+lbs for the Douglas fight with no weight limit

    You, dummy. All throughout this thread.

    So he did that for every single fight of his career, even when he was fighting just 3 days apart?

    Blimey, get a life. He cut weight, get over it. Accept it and move on!

    Well there's hardly any sensible argument that Gman could beat Hagler anyway.

    The only argument you can make is McClellan’s size and people tend to cling to one advantage during fantasy matchups

    You won't find any top shelf posters clinging to that tho. It's a small point at best.

    Oh man, now I have an itch to make an argument for McClellan!

    Wait ...

    Nevermind, it's passed.

    It doesn't make sense. We've been through why it doesn't make sense a lot on this thread.

    I'd be interested if you have information on the times of the weigh ins for Hagler's career and for McClellan's career, not that it would say much about their actual weight, but it's interesting information to have.
