CATCHWEIGHTS



You know what irritates me? Those who continuously bash on individuals who fight at catchweights (Manny Pacquiao in particular.) Catchweights are perfectly legal by the boxing commission and it's been implemented for it seems as long as the sport has been around! What these people need to understand is it's an agreement that is made by BOTH parties, not just one.. These fighters know what they're getting into and there are both positives and negatives for both fighters agreeing to a catchweight. I constantly hear people crying that these titles in different weight divisions are completely irrelevant due to the fights not being in its true weight class.. Get it right, Henry Armstrong even fought in catchweights. Hopkins, Jones, Chavez, Sugar Ray Leonard.. the list goes on, folks.. There is nothing wrong with catchweights in boxing. It's completely legal in all combat sports.
