This isn't going to stop fighters from cutting obscene amounts of weight. It's just going to allow the WBC to issue more fines.
Sulaiman did address the issue of fines but he alleges that any fines levied against any particular boxer would be given, in their entirety, to the opponent.

What the fucck are you talking about

The only time the WBC 10 pound rule would be less then the IBF rule is if there was a weight class below 100, which there isnt.

What point are you trying to make?

If the commisions and sanctioning organizations employed a similar rule to this, it'd reduce fighters' suffering a long term injury in the ring and the vast majority of fighters would have to move up a class.

Fighters that rehydrate over 10% (and even less) of their weight from one day to the next, means that they lose around 20% of water weight during training camp. The weight cuts in boxing (and wrestling and MMA) are drastic. It isn't uncommon for fighters to lose 30-40 pounds during training camp; losing 30-40 pounds of (mostly) water weight and then having 1 to recover before taking punishment makes boxing even more dangerous than it is.

Good move by the WBC.
Exactly! I've been saying this forever!

If a fighter rehydrates .01% over his weigh in weight, he doesnt belong in that weight class

No! dehydration in the brain takes days to fully recover and if you have to cut weight 2 times within a day than you going to see so many more deaths.
Dehydrated brain is linked to increased brain trauma from impact.
Thats why American Football players drink pedialytes in games.
Not a dumb rule. If fighters want to try and kill themselves in order to manipulate their weight class, then they are the dumb ones. This rule will help fighters fight within their actual weight division. Coming into the ring 20+lbs over your weight class limit defeats the purpose of having a weight class!
