yeah i was looking at the pics, and Ricco looks.... GOOD! i mean no homo, but he was a fat **** there for a while, i just hope his weight loss isnt from coke this time and he is really focused..... that would be awesome!

Speaking of fat I still saw a role of fat on him. Why he couldn't loose that and make lightheavyweight I don't know. Also I think it's just general practice that if the guy doesn't make weight he has to forfeit a certain percentage of his purse!

It's a roll of fat, it's spelled lose, and supposedly he is being accused of voluntarily offering 20 percent of his purse for the weight issue you nutsack:thumbsd own:

loose skin isn't that easy to get rid of. once you balloon up up a hundred pounds + like he did, your skin stretches to accomodate the larger body. it takes many months, even years for your skin to tighten down to a new and smaller size when you drop that much weight. give the guy some credit, its the best shape he's been in in years.

Well I'll give him credit for fighting still. However, I think he should've called it off if he got staph, legit excuse. I'm also wondering if this is perhaps is a sign that Riccco should just stick with heavyweight!
