    Zurdo Ramirez is the biggest weight bully of them all.

    It’s actually a good thing for him. It looks like he has the frame for multiple divisions

    I've been saying this forever, 90% purse penalty for missing weight. You don't can't make the contracted weight, you don't get the contracted money.

    Yeah he's not small because Boots is a large WW.

    My thing is, if you can make the weight, you can make the weight. I don't really believe in the weight bully thing because everyone is cutting weight/significant weight, that's the nature of the business. But if you're starting to struggle to do so, quit playin and just move up

    At 135, he came in at 152 against Gamboa. At 140, he came in at 158.

    He walks around as a cruiserweight.

    Number of times GGG has weighed over the MW limit of 160.

    Four and two of those were way back before he became a world champion in his pre-world title reign before there were any weight restrictions and he only came in this much over the limit

    161¼ and 161

    The other two was the catch-weight fight against Rolls and Clenelo at 168 and he looked softish carrying that extra weight the other night

    16 years as a pro and IIRC he's never missed weight the first, second or obviously the third time of asking and he's fought all over the world and many fighters have blamed missing weight or badly struggling on fighting overseas

    No illegal drugs to help him make weight either

    Put some respeck on GGG's name

    Put it on there right now

    A known awful person does an unsavory thing. Nobody should be surprised, the kid is a jerk. A talented one, but still a jerk.

    I think it's safe to say that he's moving up after this fight, win or lose.

    There is no such thing as a weight bully. If you can make the weight, it's legit. If you *can't* make the weight, then time to move up.

    The weight bully nonsense is just a made up way for people to criticize fighters they dislike.
