Ill put it like this, (IMO), as we've seen with Leonard-Norris, LaLonde-Leonard, Chad-Ward, Oscar-Pacman, etc etc...it doesnt work out no matter how good it sounds! Also, I was with Roy on July 29, 2003 at his gym in Pensacola and I will never forget (I have a pic as proof) how THICK he still was at that point, I even mentioned to him how big and solid he looked, like an NFL full back I thought...that left him August, September and October to lose all that MUSCLE...Ill assume he didnt start training to lose the weight that day and, as a matter of fact, I didnt hear about the first Tarver fight until many weeks later...so that left him a painfully short time to lose not just weight but MUSCLE weight...from how he looked in the first fight (only his sheer will in the last two round spulled it out for him) and then how pale his skin looked in the rematch I'd have to honestly say he never recovered, even to this very day...Ive experienced it before and I can assure any doubters that severe weight loss like along with the running, exercises and sparring and then fighting as you experience it is TERRIBLE/BRUTAL mentally and physically...the greatest moment in his career also turned out to be the beginning of the fall for him...ultimately, he basically sacrificed his entire career to win the WBA heavyweight title in 2003...
