You could ask what’s the relevance any weight division limit. Fighters normally rehydrate 10 to 20lbs after a weighin.
Relevance for this t fight is to weight drain Chris Eubank jr. 157lb. Who struggles to make 160lbs as it is. And then make it hard for him to fully rehydrate the following day. By setting a limit of 162lbs.
The standard rehydration clauses normally be 10lbs . This 5lbs limit makes things a lot tougher it means Eubank can’t fully re-hydrate right after the fight and will have stay dehydrated until the second weighin the following morning.
And for the record Conor Benin’s walk around weight is 168lb’s.
Anyway if Eubank jr gets whooped cus of this then there is no excuses. He agreed to this and signed the contract.
I don't understand why Eubank even took this fight. Beating Benn means nothing, and the weight-draining thing is just shyte piled on top of a nothing sandwich.
It's not a title fight, so Eubank should just miss the weight on purpose, and pay whatever the penalty is. What are they gonna' do, cancel the fight?
