There's no minimum weight in professional boxing only in amateurs. You just have to weight in under the limit. In the case of HW there is no limit so you can weight anything, you could weigh 90lbs if you wanted.

Because lennox Lewis was huge and a monster puncher with very good skills..


Biggest fight ever would have been roy vs tyson..

Also roy-holyfield would have been huge.

But roy wasn't trying to get beheaded so he went back down
