Good example of this was Arturo Gatti. He would re-hydrate and put on 20 llbs. overnight thus giving himself a perfectly legal advantage. That's why many state boxing commissions now demand that the weigh-in take place on THE DAY of the fight. They won't thus have enough time to pack on so much weight in so short a time. But to answer your question on the reverse side, steam baths and saunas as well as taking laxatives and lots of spitting ( honestly ) is a common practice for losing weight overnight. But truth be told, I believe that it is far more common for boxers to pack on weight overnight than it is for them to lose it overnight."
Thanks man great info. Akways wondered how they do it. Great sig as well. You get it by andre berto by any chance? Or the song by his record company?
