    Default Jezreel Corrales misses weight vs Machado

    He was over by 4 pounds, had two hours to lose it then was over by 3.25 pounds. I absolutely hate it when a fighter is over by that much. I hate it when they miss weight in general, but I can at least understand if it’s a pound or less and they just can’t get it off. Being 4 pounds overweight shows that you either didn’t take the weight seriously enough or you knew from the beginning you couldn’t get down to the weight.

    You are getting paid a lot of money for fighting. Corrales will have to fork over some money to Machado. I think each pound over should be 25% of your purse. Then if you pull out because of weight issues, you owe them a percentage of what the challenger was supposed to make.

    4 pounds is a lot. Poor professionalism
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    I wouldnt be so harsh. Making weight can be extremely difficult and there can be things that we dont know about that can make it harder to take off the pounds that you usually can drop easily the week of the fight. 4 pounds is shocking thought and I dont think the fight should go ahead. Hes coming in as a lightweight and could very well be a welter in the ring.

    Seems to be becoming a common theme for Golden Boy fighters.

    Everyone knows between Feather to Welter are the toughest weights to make. He mayswell stay at Lightweight and make it easier on himself.

    Really dumb move but looking forward to seeing him fight again. If we know anything trinkets today can be shiny door prizes to bigger pay and in 130 that just watched "the next" Mayweather also blow weight Corrales should work harder to avoid the stigma. He was also dropped hard and hurt last out so maybe it's all calculated like so many do now. He keeps the immediate HBO stage but adds advantages with no drain, losses some coin. Frankly he should be doing rematch with Castellanos. Big 130 HBO card in Dec also with Berchelte v Salido and Farmer looking for a trinket.
