When ranking fighters in terms of weight class, sometimes for example, Ezzard Charles will have a good win but, it'll be at 176 ABOVE the LHW limit but, it's still strictly speaking between two lightheavyweights. What do you guys do in this situation, another fighter who suffers from this is Duran who apart from title fights usually weighed in around 138 during his LW reign of terror.

Guess you'd have to bear in mind that they had same day weigh ins doubt many fighters get as close as they did to their weight class these days.

If it's close to the weight limit and it's two career light Heavyweights fighting at like 178 and 179 or something I usually include that to their Light Heavyweight resume.

Very true,

I heard last week that Saul Alvarez came in at 168Lbs for his 'welterweight' weight on fight night.

Just one example....
