Default ..WHAT'S WORSE: Catchweights Or Switching Divisions?...

What I mean is.... There are three different situations that happen when you consider weight and trying to get the biggest fights made.

1. Forcing a man to fight at a higher 'catchweight'. This makes him sometimes outsized and slows them down at times. There power then might lack and it can hurt their bodies in the long run.

2. Asking a fighter to come down too low, with a lower catchweight. You might drain your opponent, making your win tainted to some and potentially ruining the weight of the other fighter.

3. Staying in a weight division you're too big for, for the advantages. If you're too tall, but you feel that since you can make the weight, you stay for the physical advantages you hold over your opponents.

What do you think?

"Staying in a weight division you're too big for, for the advantages" is the worst because catchweights only happen once in a blue moon.
