    Seen.

    What a ****ing disgrace. Anyone else wanna say that the size/weight didn't matter when Jacobs is outright telling us that it was strategic?

    Weight 'cheats' dominate many divisions these days, not sure why Jacobs is being singled out as being particularly bad for cutting a large amount of weight.

    What if he showed up the fight weighing 153 pounds? And then he claimed he wanted to be "quick on his toes?" I think you'd find something to complain about either way and people certainly wouldn't be talking about this if the result wasn't so close and/or debatable.

    But it seemed to bother all you suck ups when GGG fought IYO a welterweight in Brook, who incidentally was heavier than GGG...but hey why let the facts get in the way of a good troll fest...

    Of course size/weight matters. It is always an obvious large factor in any fight.

    You can't think of a single other fighter who gets the same hate?

    I just think it's a bit weird that this is seen as a particularly big issue. Lots of guys drain heavily.

    IBF rules say you cant rehydrate more than 10lbs if u want that belt.....fighters regularly rehydrate over 10lbs...golovkin was 169.8 on saturday weigh in....what if jacobs was 172 and didnt want to bother trying to cut anymore? is that a huge advantage? it was to his benefit to not make an extra effort to cut whatever was left that he needed to....to strain himself and expend energy

    brandon rios rehydrated over 20lbs against bradley and still got his arse whipped

    I told idiots like Dino the Duck and the Cuckmaster he was going to come in over 170 and use his size, but you wouldn't listen.

    when did i ever dispute your alleged claim?

    i surely dont recall....but then again its most likely another case of golovkin fans making something up

    does anyone have any proof that jacobs was anymore than 170.1 lbs? i dont know if there is any.....

    how come brandon rios came in over 170 for a WW fight and got his but whooped? jacobs size didnt win any fight...the same way floyds size didnt beat marquez
