Using weight as an excuse is ridicuolous!!!! They both signed they're both satisfied! Ray.
Ofcourse its a huge deal, specially for Manny. Physically his body is giving up on him and I highly doubt that he wants to put his body trough the hardest training camp he would have in a long while to make the 138lb. limit. Its no secret that for the last couple training sessions he has avoided Arizas work out regime because his not as motivated any more. At 138 Marquez would hurt him bad.
