So Cotto, a much bigger guy weighed 6.5 lbs less then Matthysse?
Edit - Found another one from the drive
Want to hear something strange? Years later, Tszyu and Judah were both 143 unofficially the night of the fight. How do you go from weighign 157 at fight time, to 143? I give up my search, but I'm sure there have been 140lbs fighters who hit 160s out there, unofficially of course. I'd shave 4-5lbs off that naked. Again, I believe Matthysse was probably 157-158 naked which is still strange considering Cotto and Tsyzu were probably weighed in with clothes on as well. Shrug, but who knows? I've posted a HUGE Victor Ortiz only weighing 152 as well, and Maidana only weighing 149. It's a mystery, it really is.
Also keep in mind Chop Chop corley isn't a small man himself and as stated above, was 140 to cottos 157, meaning he didn't hydrate at all, but Chop Chop has also been in the 150s on fight night as well. How does one go form no hydration at all to 10lbs worth? The diet may have a lot to do with it, ya know?
Who knows what's different for Lucas now, maybe he loaded on heavy carbs this times and had a big breakfast as well. Maybe his bowel movement was different, shrug. LOL!
