That isn't what Mersch said. He was clear that "they don't count the decimal":

Mersch: “Here, they’re going to allow you and Georges to have an extra hour. Just in case somebody doesn’t make it. But the good news is, they don’t count the decimal. If you’re 170.2 it’s 170. If it’s 170.9. it’s 170.”

In other words, 170.9 = 170 -- which is "kind of an off the record type of thing", according to Mersch. The fight wasn't at 170 pounds. That's all we know. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that this is some old-school boxing shenanigans with the local home Commission, given Georges' apparent difficulties in trying to make weight. Unless the Commission comes clean, we'll never know Georges's actual weight on the scale. All we will know is that the rule was changed at the last minute before the weigh-ins, which had never happened before in Montreal.

Do you Diaz fans really want to see a rematch? I think not, so lets put this to sleep.
