It does as long as it isn't as much to the point that it slows you down significantly. You can try it out by punching a heavy bag with and without a 3 lbs dumbbell in your hand. 3 lbs won't slow you down, but your punch will be much more powerfull.

I am interested to see how he performs with less fat, he could probably make 185 without losing muscle.
Not so sure about 185, but 205 certainly.

It'll definetly be interesting to see how he does with a new body shape.
