Corrales had given up the division at least 6 months before, and lived in a dweat box for weeks before the fight right up to weigh-in time. Failed the 1st weigh0in. Could barely walk to the scales. That wasn't Corrales in ther, but, as he said GEFORE the fight,
I needed the money and they gave me an offer too good to refuse". He was not only broke, but his marraige had broken up and he was headed to gaol immediately after the fight. The money was for the lawyers.
Mayweather took bad advantage. It was a disgrace.
