    You see the lighter guys bounce around the whole fight

    Up to what weight class do you think this is possible ? for a whole fight

    I weight 92kg ripped, 97kg when not quite as ripped and my cardio is good for my level of ability. I can't keep up the bouncing around for more than a couple of rounds

    Why bounce around for the whole fight? Wouldn't it be more productive to just bounce when you have to?

    I once salsa'd throughout an amateur kickboxing match but I was only light heavyweight so... if I packed on the extra 20 pounds, not sure I could have done that.

    I started with salsa for the first few rounds, but couldn't keep it up and had to drop down to ballroom by the end of the match.

    Mo muscle Mo problems.
    Serious though, why bother bouncing an entire fight? It just teaches you to waste energy.

    Supermiddleweight limit 168lbs and same for MMA Welter 170lbs. You see plenty of guys with high output at those weights but not so much above.

    He may be after something, it's become clearer and clearer that the judges are not giving points away for good boxing. So maybe they changed some categories.

    Fighters will be judged on:
    Crowd Reaction
    Facial Expressions
    Loopiness of Punches
    Ring Admiralship
    and Dazzle

    It depends. Are we talking a full rendition of Thriller or something more subtle such as the stanky leg or Lean Back like Fat Joe?

    If you look at it objectively, Ali wasn't a good boxer at all. If you take away all the extra points the judges awarded him for his Ali Shuffle, he would of lost most of his fights.
