    "Boxing purist" = knowing how the belts work. Wow standards are getting really low. Lol

    Not to mention I know more about MMA and have done more MMA than boxing by far.

    Whatever he weighed fight night was legal since he made weight at the official weigh-in but it sure looked like he did have a big size advantage. It's not a stretch to say he had 10 or 15 pounds on GGG.

    10 -15 pounds is a big range. Just kind of proves how inaccurate the look test is. Looks can be very decieving with weight especially with taller lengthier fighters.
    How much do you think GGG in ring size advantage was vs Brook?
    Also, guess the size advantage wasnt the end all be all because he still lost on the cards.
    I think all this talk takes away from the fact Danny put on a great performance right at GGG #1 ranked level.

    I must admit I didn't t realise GGG was that old, he needs to really chase some big money fights while he can.

    Exactly. Usually there is a bigger guy. A taller guy. A wider guy. Or a guy with longer arms.
    Cant always fight your clone or doppelganger. Have to draw the line somewhere.

    You must be joking.

    BJS ducks everyone for a reason. He doesn't have the power to keep GGG honest like Jacobs did. He gets the Brook treatment easily from GGG or Jacobs or Lemieux or Canelo or the Charlos.

    Nothing, that's why there's no need to act like we need empirical proof to know his exact weight. Having a weight advantage seems to have been part of the plan going in. It is what it is.

    I just find it ridiculous. Canelo was a coward when he fought Khan, yet Golovkin was taking on an "interesting challenge" in Brook. Then the first time we see Golovkin without his size advantage, the fight wasn't fair some how.

    I disagreed with you about that for a while. But yeah there is for sure a weird double standard with GGG fans. Some of the stuff just defies logic. I didnt see it until this fight was announced.

    I don't think it takes anything away from his performance. He put on a great show. I just don't think we should act like he didn't have a size advantage because we don't have exact weights night of the fight.

    jacobs gained 30 pounds?

    it takes a very unique body to gain 30 pounds in roughly 36 hours and its not happening in boxing because of the 12 rounds.

    i believe ufc fihgters gleason tibau and diego sanchez gained close to 30 pounds but that is extreme. 20 pounds is the high end in boxing and that would put danny at 180 which is probably what he weighed last night.

    if danny jacobs can legally cut 20+ pounds and have a size advantage too bad for those that cant

    My point is weight classes. When guys come in fight night in a different weight class.

    I dont think there is anybody denying a size advantage. That was known when the fight was announced. If he would of made 170 in the AM he still would of had a size advantage fight times.

    Brook was an undefeated champion who tried to fight Khan for years. Khan was a chinless wonder who had been dodging decent fighters for years. The only thing they had in common was weight.

    If Canelo had fought Brook I would have thought it was an interesting match. If GGG fought Khan I would have considered it a pathetic joke.

    Jacobs did a lot of good body work. I think that made GGG seem old.

    Im sure a majority if not all guys that fight at 160 are well over 2 weight classes bigger in the ring.
    Heck even if they come in at 170 and dont gain wait the entire day. Thats already two weight class bigger.
    I think I get what you're saying. But to me its no difference than a height or reach advantage. But actually could hurt you a lot more if you do cut too much.

    Both guys walked into the ring heavier than the weight limit for the weight class above the one they were fighting in. That's boxing.
