Anyone that isn't elusive like Martinez will get hurt at 160, that's if he really stays there.
I don't subscribe to that. Weight-draining has its advantages and disadvantages. He might out-weigh his opponents by 10lbs+, but his stamina/endurance/defense will suffer. He's almost incapable of avoiding shots, which is why he continues to rely on his chin/punch resistance. He has NO choice but to absorb punishment.
As for the OT, I would only favor Chavez over Proksa and Sturm. Proksa has the style/speed/heart, but the weight would probably be too much. Sturm doesn't have the work-rate/power to beat Chavez.
I favor Martinez/Golovkin/Quillin slightly, and everyone else is 50-50.
Chavez shouldn't get an immediate rematch with all these other fights available. Who in their right mind will bit
ch about Chavez/Golovkin?
