If he is fighting at the weight why the rehydration clause? It's unfair.

I feel two ways about it. Sometimes....sometimes, some fighters come in HUGE on fight night and it definitely gives them a huge advantage. I just can't picture a guy coming in at damn near 20 lbs heavier when the guy you're fighting only put on 10 lbs or less overnight. 

 

On the other hand (as you mentioned), if they're fighting at a contracted weight, then you should be down to fight regardless of how much weight the other man has put on. 

 

Is it Fighter A's fault that Fighter B won't just move up in weight because they're struggling to cut weight just to have advantage?

Damn. Can't really blame Team Canelo for putting a rehydration clause in place, but exactly how much is he expecting for beating Jacobs (if he does)?

 

He's expecting everything, even with the petty advantages.

Petty mental advantage

but I canelo gonna be aloud to blow up without being penalized is the real question.

He puts on weight alot too after weigh ins,. Just something to think about

I can't blame Canelo's team for a re-hydration clause but I can call them hypocritical. We all know Canelo has blown up over night numerous times. When he fought Floyd he was like 175 lol

If we get the Danny that fought GGG, he can win, otherwise we'll just see Danny flailing around the ring like some of his lackluster performances
