You mean HBO and Showtime are Lying about Floyd's fight nigh weight?
Great points. Had never thought of it this way.
Pacman and Floyd are both great, but as a neutral I give Pacman the edge people forget one factor (forget all the world titles),
Pacman fights away from home, Mayweather accomplished everything in Vegas....Pac gets the more respect.
Let Mayweather fight Maidana in Argentina etc.....like Pac facing BRadley in US.
Weight....nas NOTHING to do with size???:huh
So Celestine Caballero is bigger(sizewise) than David Tua?
Fight night weights are unofficial. They use unofficial weighing scales and is not subjected to thorough inspection. Someone could have weighed with cloths or gloves on while someone weighed unclothed. One can weigh after drinking water and you don't care. One can even not weigh seriously by stepping one foot on the side or by holdin on something and HBO or showtime won't care.
Pac has been weighing in the low or mid of WWs while Floyd is maximizing it at 147. Pac coupd even make 140 right now but Floyd can't make 144 against jmm 4 years ago.
People keep saying that Pac could make 140.
He hasnt weighed 140 or under in over 5 years.
Saying he can weigh under 140 doesnt mean anything unless he actually does.
He has also maxed out at 147 at weigh ins as well.
Pacquiao's last 4 fights at WW, have seen him weigh in at 146
The exact same as Mayweathers last 4 fights at WW.
he could if wanted to its easy for him he comes in at weigh in around 143 to 145 normaly........and he eats 6 meals to maintain that weight....
He weighed 145 gainst bradley. Easily made the 144 catchweight against jmm that floyd never made. In his only fight at LMW, he weighed 147 against Margarito while Floyd was weighing 152 against Oscar.
None of that means he could fight at 140.
Also, Floyd weighed 150 on the scales against De La Hoya, not 152.
The most he ever weighed on the scales was 151 against Cotto.
The fact that we're arguing about a couple of pounds shows that size isnt even a factor between these 2.
"We're going to take our time, go out there and if a guy leaves an opening on his face, we're going to take it, if he leaves an opening on his body we're going to take it.
"But we can't just say we're going to go in there and everything is going to go to the body. We're going to take our time and pick the guy apart. I'm naturally the bigger guy because I've been at 147 almost 10 years now."
i agree, pac is bigger than theftjr.
fotd>>>46 and 0 accomplishtment.:good
That's the quote for the first Maidana fight.
Floyd was wrong though. Chino came in at 165
you brainless idiot.
everything you need to know is already there in the quote.
fight night weight is nothing especially when theftjr lies about his.:hi:
Not much point in arguing with him.
He has it in his mind that Floyd lies about his weight and no logic or facts will convince him otherwise.
