PLUS Oscar's previous fight was at 150. Just 3 pounds to adjust. Oscar told the media a week before the fight that weight was not an issue that he already had that controlled and even came down to 145 (to gain extra speed). Oscar thought it was a piece of cake compared to what Manny had to do. That is, come up 2 divisions. One fight away from 3 divisions.
It's funny that this guy makes a big deal about Oscar going down 3 pounds
from his previous fight, Cotto 1 lb
from previous fight, Margarito got a bonus of 3 extra pounds
from his career fighting weight but is not amazed at what Manny had to do.
