PW fighting at 157 when he is 6 feet 3, pac-margs fighting at 150 for a vacant title??? Do we need 20 divisions now?

Here is an interesting article on it: http://www.ironchinboxing.com/
catchweights has been in boxing since forever. to start complaining about it now is assinine.

going down weight is not as easy as people make it out to be.

1-2 pounds really do make a difference
