Question What fighters have been effective while moving DOWN in weight?

After watching Chad Dawson take a beating it made me think about what fighters have been effective while moving down in weight? I think what Chad did was pretty stupid. What fighters have been effective while moving down in weight?

The one that pops right to my mind is Giovany Segura. Fought a number of fights at 115, came down to 112 and eventually down to 108 to chase and beat down the smaller Ivan calderon twice. After the second fight he jumped back to 115 lol.

Great poster! - E.P.T. to an ATG poster. One who always keeps it 100% real - BrushMyHair

Miguel Vazquez started at 140 or 147 and worked his way down to 135 with better results. Im pretty sure his only losses are to Bradley and Canelo at 140 and 147.

Judah has kind of turned his career around dropping from 147 to 140, certainly didn't hurt him.

Good poster. - ddangerous Nice looking pup.  Have anyother Pepsi - ABOSWORTH 
Smile

It's all relative so my guy wasn't world famous or even a world champion but he did fight for a World title.

Lou Gent was a rough & tumble bloke from South London. Turned pro at 19 and half a dozen years later got kayoed by Johnny Nelson for the British Cruiserweight title. His record after that was 16-6-1.

HE THEN GAVE UP CHOCOLATE BISCUITS (cookies to my Yank friends)

Three years later he's fighting Nigel Benn for the WBC Supermiddleweight title.

I was there that night. I was/am a HUGE Benn fan but I felt a surge of pride as the place was PACKED with my fellow South Londoners, most of us E'd up, singing "Saaf Laahndahn, Saaf Laahndahn, Saaf Laahndahn. Saaf Laahndahn, Saaf Laahndahn, Saaf Laahndaaaa-ahn."

There are more verses but they sound better on MDMA.

Anyway, he took the fight to Benn who bounced off the ropes & beat the Granny out of him.

Great night though
