WBC El Gordo Presidente For Life
Fat Sulaimán Jr pulls an assassination drive by shackling fighters with the most draconian weighin rules ever devised in boxing history. Larded Couch Potato Slugs devising weight rules for hardened combat athletes, now wrap your sensibilities around that new reality.
Some 30 years ago the boxing medical community became belatedly alarmed when they finally figured out fighters did not have time to properly rehydrate for same day weighins on the date of the fight, a big DUH moment for these low browed suits populating boxing.
Thus with legal liabilities growing in the background, boxing moved to day before weighins that resulted in healthier fighters entering the ring. They also created the last of the “Junior” divisions that yields the current construct of 17 weight divisions from the less than 105 lb minimumweight to the open class 200 lb+ heavyweights. Subsequently boxing entered into a golden age of fighting legends with lucrative PPV deals raining down like manna from heaven, but alas, no such largess can last without ever more suits dipping into the honeypot that soon became so despoiled and soiled that the public fled for more honorable sports with more understandable rules and transparent scoring.
In addition to the 152 lb catchweight above, the WBC also sanctioned the 165lb rehydration limit to further handicap the bigger Canelo. In contrast, Floyd Tue 50-0 Mayweather has had a free reign with the WBC and USADA drug cartel. These folks are utterly shameless in the fashion they construct the rules that they flagrantly flout.
The new rules require the fighters to bounce their weights around even more over short 30 day time spans with 5 total weighins, a recipe for disaster as any competent weight physician can testify, and how many bounces would that be for a Canelo with over 50 pro fights had they been in place? My math shows over 250 severe bounces in weight for an otherwise healthy specimen…only in boxing folks!!!
