Some of those weiht classes are only a few pounds apart from each other. Does a few pounds really make a difference or is boxing just trying to create as many titles as possible? Log in to Reply Perulives July 4, 2012 Wrestling has just as many weight classes if not more Ramdog. Log in to Reply rtorres7794 July 4, 2012 Amir looks better and better. Funny how lots of critics said Pacquiao made Roach, etc. Roach has improved the angles and footwork of Khan & Chavez Jr. as well. Two potential legends in the making right there. It sucks seeing Roach’s condition worsen with time. @ Ramdog, I think modern science would suggest there really isn’t a significant difference from one weight class in boxing to the one immediately above and below it. Bone density and structure is the foundation for power, so fighting a man who, disregarding muscle mass, is naturally larger than you does give him that advantage. I accept some truth to that, but I also think from a business perspective: it sure as hell has benefited the boxing organizations to have so many different weight classes, ha$n’t it?

Log in to Reply punkfly July 4, 2012 @Ramdog I wondered this myself until I started boxing. It is a legitimate question. Short answer: YES it really does make a big difference. Remember they are fighting at there hydrated weight not their weigh in weight. Some fighters can gain 12lbs over night. While the other fighter stays the same (meaning that is closer to his walk around weight). So during the fight you might have one guy weighing 150lb vs. another guy weighing 162lb. On the street that’s NOT a big deal at all. Chances are there is a wide gap in skill and the smaller guy could easily beat the bigger dude. But with ELITE athletes the margins are so slim, that ANY advantage is of great concern. Think of it as Michael Phelps in swimming having larger feet, that give in an edge in micro-seconds. Kinda similar.

Log in to Reply sirhitsalot July 4, 2012 Hey does anyone know what they were doing at the end of the video where there slapping him with a stick?? Log in to Reply scottc July 4, 2012 Sirhitsalot-what they were doing helps you develop a higher pain threshold. You would repeatedly strike various parts of your body with bamboo sticks. The bamboo sticks sting but won’t break bones or cause bruising. Muay Thai fighters use them in training.

Log in to Reply mmasauce July 5, 2012 I used to (and still do) enjoy watching the hand speed and the way the fighters bob and roll when doing mitts but now have been paying attention to their footwork. Really is impressive how they get into position. Log in to Reply dave July 5, 2012 Damn Amir’s hands are fast!
