Oh I don't blame him at all, and all fighters do it. What I question is why do people put so much emphasis on weight classes, when you're entering the ring at the same weight from super feather up to welter, or in the case against Margarito at JRMDW, 144 pounds, well under the welterweight limit!
It just doesn't make sense, as it seems he is just very good at cutting weight for weigh-ins, then putting all his weight back on.
He has jumped weight classes, but has not "really" jumped up in weight by much at all. Not a significant amount to holler about, anyway.
