I read a thread just now about comparing Manny Pacquiao to Henry Armstrong:

^read this first^

A poster has claimed that Armstrong Fought at catchweights:

DLH didn't fight Floyd for a second time in the end, so he didn't have to respect demands that were on the contract for Floyd II when he was now fighting Manny, right ?

and I just looked up the WW title fights Armstrong has had
you'll have to name the fights that happened at a catch-weight, because there's no indication there that there were catch-weights, and many of those fights happened at the full division limit with his opponents coming in near 147

provide evidence please
or else it didn't happen

Lew Jenkins, contested at 140 for the welterweight crown for starters.

It's on the front page of his Boxrec stats as well.

If you need more "proof" then that, the fact that both men weighed just a shade under 140 for the welterweight, I will dig for more proof. However, I think I've already proven conclusively that Hank fought title fights at catchweights.

I posted this in the history section so I could read some thoughts from people who are familiar with Armstrong career.

That's a silly claim by that poster. Jenkins vs Armstrong were not for the title either time.

Look at the time they was both posted, this one was first, that is if you're referring to the other Armstrong catch weight thread in history section anyway.

Otherwise he obviously just wanted to know what History section thought of it.

2 things:

1) Non title fights don't count.

2) Armstrong didn't fight in junior/super divisions.

2) Armstrong didn't fight in junior/super divisions.
3) Armstrong was coming down in weight.

4) Armstrong wasn't "draining" his opponents like Emmanuel PacquaiO.
