    In preparation for his HBO showdown with titleholder Jean Pascal in Montreal, Dawson apparently is already in terrific condition. At a mandatory weigh-in 30 days before the fight, Dawson was 177 pounds -- just two above the limit when he could have weighed as much as 192

    It's not new. The WBC has been doing it for awhile now. I remember before the Corrales vs Castillo 2 fight, theere was things under investigations with the Castillo camp on why he came in so heavy for the fight, if he has been on schedule to make weight.

    I like the idea to weighting them 30 days before the fight.It should help fighters from coming in heavy.


    Ok here it is.
