Mayweather and pacquiao Considered Undersized Welters Historically?
Jose Napoles has the same reach as Mayweather and is only an inch shorter. He is frequently called an undersized welter. Jose Napoles fought in the past where people were smaller on average yet he was still considered small. Maybe Mayweather isn't considered to be small often since the welter era he's in doesn't have big guys (SRL, Hearns, etc)
