If this is legit then holy ****.
i hear you as number can lie.
at the time that both Adrien Broner & Mickey Garcia won their respective 4 belts in 4 different divisions.
they were undefeated & the world was a buzz with their talents.
so now they got fat & old ... it happens.
That doesn’t diminish what they accomplished.
Especially considering had they died the day after they accomplished it they would have been immortalized by the boxing community.
gotta respect it brother.
It ain’t easy or we would be doing it instead of debating about it.
Being a multiple division champ has become a feat basically most can do. It's highly watered down in regards to the level of accomplishment it once was.
Now it´s about whom you beat, not about how many belts you have won.
De la hoya wasnt a ww. He fought at 47 to get pac in the ring. He hadnt fought there in 7-8 years.
No, he fought at 147 to get Floyd and Pac was a replacement he dragged up from 135. Get your facts right.
He’s also never fought at 150 but his last fight was there with Forbes.
I dont give a **** if he called the smaller guy up or if he called a smaller guy done, point of the matter is that devla hoya didnt fight as a ww for 7-8 years, and had he not called out pac would have most likely ended his career at 54-60.. it was a catchweight, and i didnt read the rest of your bs after the first line.
So you’re redefining what a catchweight means? God you’re a moron.
so by your definition, RJJ fought Tarver at a catchweight.
Rigo’s fights after he dropped back down are catchweights.
you truly are an imbecile who lacks basic comprehension.
mad for your question, how many fights did Pac have at 147 when he fought odlh? Heck how many fights did he have at 140? How many fights did he have at LW?
He didnt fight Floyd at 47, did he? ? ? He could have easily moved back up to his division, so instead he called out lw pac and dragged him up 2 divisions for a cw fight with a hefty pricetag per pound he was overweight. Yea i know, thats a cw.
So moving up or down 1 weight class , with no stipulation to the weight , is now a catch weight. Cool story.
jackass... 147 isn't a CW, it's the limit of WW. Are you too dense to get it? CW's are between two actual weight classes.
What do you mean stipulation? DE la hoya had to pay up big had he weighed anything over 47, which was the reason he killed himself literally to make 45.
That doesn't make it a CW, and you obviously are trying to re-write what a CW is. CW's happen BETWEEN two weight classes. Doesn't matter how long it had been since Oscar was at WW. Moving down in weight doesn't mean you are now engaging in CW's. That shouldn't even need to be explained here FFS...but it's YOU, so...expected.
Jackass anything from 141-147 is ww.. he was a 154 pound fighter moving down to 147 to accommodate manny pac, a division he hadnt fought in 7 years.
