The sheer number of dumb hank threads today is mind boggling.
Rold owning *******s left and right...

I was about to do the same, since I would've sworn Armstrong took more than a few fights at double digit weight disadvantages while he was growing into welterweight. Panda schooled them on the Leonard situation too.

Don't know why these idiots insist on looking stupid without actually researching.

Was this a scheduled catchweight? Ross weighed in at 141-143 for the last 17 of his fights.

Thank you for spreading knowledge. Didn't know that.
