    Default Rubio/Kazak & Donaire/Walters weigh in





    Man Rubio looks like he really struggled in camp. Seems odd that he would blow weight in the biggest fight of his life. On the other hand he could be much stronger on fight night taking something out of the Salido textbook but even if he won it would be tarnished so I dont get it. I mean you cant take to much away from the look on the scales and the best example of that was Morales at 122 but he looked weak.

    I highly doubt Rubio planned to come in heavy, beyond a couple of days ago at least. He has that gangly build so never looks strong, but he does appear a little bit gaunt maybe.

    Guy has had a lot of fights, he's a natural middle etc. I'd bet in means he really struggled in camp also, if anything.

    Its just a weird pick of a fight to fall off track. Sure a lot of Garcia fighters not making weight lately.

    Stoked about Donaire v Walters. That just has to end ugly either way. Was that Rubios 1st or 2nd attempt on the scale They brought him right out bare arse neked like fully expecting it. More and more think he'll shell up like he did Pavlik. Hard to boast about warrior this and full effort etc when you can't be bothered to bust butt enough to drop 1.8 lbs

    Donaire is another great example of a man that fell in love with his power and then hubris set in. Once he stroked Vic with that perfect shot he lost the use of his other hand. I think he started to believe all he had to do was show up. In addition he was fighting little guys compared to him which also helped to inflate his unbeatable aura. So much so that it seems he believed he never really needed training for Rigo. Now that's some kind of inflatable ego right there. Its odd because I'm a fan of Walters and not a fan of Donaire but find myself cheering for him. I think it might be his balls for taking this fight. I doubt anybody else in the sport would given similar circumstances and that really separates him from the pack for me.
