  • Diaz intentionally missed weight, didnít want to be steamrolled by power punches

    He's the smaller guy in this fight and the lighter puncher.

    He gave himself a weight class advantage because he was scared he couldn't handle those power shots.

    Now he'll be able to box more comfortably without worrying about going to sleep from a shot he doesn't see coming.

    Pretty disgusting but that's totally what happened. Zero percent chance he accidentally was in another weight class. Zero.

    So he gave up his belt on the off chance that this guy might hurt him?

      These two will look like Sadam Ali vs Munguia. Diaz can also be a slugger, so lots of variables in this. Diaz needs every bit of endurance non effected by the drain to win. People still don't understand that Canelo at 168-175 performs so well because he's filled at the scale and more at optimal level on fight night

        It isn't the off chance.

        He's not confident in a win if the odds aren't stacked in his favor.

        He's trying to stay relevant and not lose.

        He'll get a big fight without the IBF title.

          Too many weight divisions. There shouldn't be 130, 140, etc. Smaller weight divisions are too close together.

          Kudos if he missed weight intentionally. Anyone who disrespects belts is cool in my book. Rather make a name for yourself without belts, and save the sanctioning fees.

            What? lol


            Then why even sign the contact at said weight you hold a title at? Your opponent also makes the sacrifice to cut down and fight at the contracted weight. Then by this logic, his opponent can cancel the fight since Diaz refused to try to make the weight.


            It's more than disrespecting the belts, he's disrespecting his opponent. But oh, you're a Tank fan....

              Dumb, even for you.

                " Diaz intentionally missed weight, didn't want to be steamrolled by power punches"

                Very possible in this day and age. This is why making weight on the day of the fight needs to be restored. Just ahead of round one. There are too many weight bullies and too much weight maneuvering to get an advantage, in today's boxing. It is as much a "strategy" as attacking and defending. Sad.

                Make everyone fight in the division they weigh out in right before the fight. Then all boxers are getting a fair fight. Hydrate however you want before the fight .... but you have to come in weighing proper for the division you are fighting in.

                  That's some man crush you got going on there. Did you put on your pink leotards before jerking it to your favorite sweaty Canelo posted today?

                    When your parents read you bedtime stories was it about the biography of rap music and Haymon in Wonderland?
