    Of Till's wage.

    What a fucking joke. And this from a dude who was proud to compete as a LHW in WW...

    It's a much bigger disappointment than Max who took the fight on short notice.

    What a fuck up

    At least in Holloway's case he might have actually been able to make weight if the stupid commission didn't stop him lol. Yeah I don't know, this shit is fucked. If he starches Wonderboy people will forget about the missing weight thing but you can't be fighting for the title if you miss weight by 3.5lbs. This isn't his first time missing weight either.

    Under no circumstances should Wonderboy take this fight. Till doesn't deserve this opportunity.

    I would just deny the fight if i'm Wonderboy. Till being 5lbs overweight means he didnt even try to cut down so he's already coming in at least 5lbs heavier and probably not as drained as Wonderboy is after making weight. He's doing the Dern strategy of coming in way heavier than your opponent to have a size/strength advantage and not trying to make it.. people are learning that winning an important fight is worth more than 20% of your purse. If Till wins he will get a title shot later anyway so it makes sense to cheat.

    I think he tries. He looked like a dried fruit on the scale

    agreed, if he really believes in himself he should ask for something kinda absurd like 60+% of total purse, or 80% show-only instead of not fighting at all

    yea, wonderboy should decline. we have to get this weight cutting shit under control and the abusers need to be punished. he wanted this fight, in his hometown, and talked the talk. and then he misses by almost 4 POUNDS.

    wonderboy didnt even want this fight and only took it because he wasnt apart of the interim fight and he wants to stay busy. this is a big risk if he takes it. hes better off sitting on the sidelines and seeing what happens with the interim fight. never know what could happen.

    they can book wonderboy vs usman or some shit a for late summer.

    Yesterday, there was a thread titled "is Till eligible for I title shot?" and I interpreted that as he'd missed weight.

    Imagine my surprise today as I open sherdog and find out that the sumbitch eventually missed weight for real.

    Wonderboy should demand 100% of Till's purse.

    He should demand a one point deduction for Till.

    Just cut mr. light heavyweight.

    There are a few fighters who likes to point out how bigger they are than the rest of the division, a bit stupid but that's ok, Conor did that at FW, but he always made weight. But this guy, this guy spent months saying he is a light heavyweight and it should be illegal for him to fight in welterweight. Then he misses by 5 pounds.

    What an idiot.

    Till definitely does not deserve getting 50%

    If you saw his feet at the weigh in he also tried to manipulate the scales.

    What a prick.

    This is bullshit. I was all hyped up to see Wonderboy get starched but now it shouldn't even count if Till wins.
