I'm not trying to paint with one color but it doesn't seem to make too much sense to me.

I understand when guys have to cut weight that they don't take fights on short notice but most heavyweights don't have to cut weight.

Being banged up or injured I completely understand. But heavyweights don't need nearly as much time it seems to me to prepare for a fight. They shouldn't be out of shape.

I also have to be honest. I'm not a huge fan of heavyweight fights. Yes most of them end in dramatic fashion but outside the top 5 there is a serious drop off in talent I feel. Phone Post

Just because they don't have to cut weight, why wouldn't they have to get in shape?

So after 3 months of eating less than normal and working out hard every day they don't deserve a month or so to sit on their couch, eat potato chips, and relax? Just because they're heavyweights?

How grueling would the diet be for a HW? They need to eat good no doubt about it but they're not starving themselves like the others do. Phone Post
