I agree with FedorEm25 I would also have to say Sherk wins this one. I think they should have a weigh-in in the locker room before they step into the ring
I had boxed as an amateur while in the Marine corps as a welterweight, 5'8" 157 lbs. the boxing coaches wanted me to lose over 20 pounds because most of my opponents would be over 6 feet. Nonstop badgering, sometimes I would find out a month before a fight my next opponent would be a lightweight so either lose the weight or you're off the team. Refused to lose the weight and was off the team.
My roommate was 6'1" fighting at 139 lbs, he had started out as a light heavyweight and kept cutting weight until he found a weight where he thought he could win the golden gloves.
It seems a though great fighters move up in weight and mid level fighters move down
