I've gotta be honest I've never heard him talk about the weigh in issue, I just always assumed it was a game plan.For the record Jacobs said he was surprised when he woke up 2 pounds over the reweigh weight. He said it wasn't his plan. Could be true, could be BS. But I have no reason not to trust the guy. I don't pay close enough attention to him to say "he has a history of lying"I did say "is it worth mentioning"Mate, he didn't break any rules, he used them to give himself the best chance of winning.
The people who are wrong in this are the WBC &WBA.
If they had the same ruling , Jacobs would've had no choice.
Everyone can see it's a sensible policy, but since when did anyone give a fuck about that?
That was his game plan, no doubt about it, he did break the IBF rules, I'm not saying it is a massive issue or that he should have been DQ'd or anything like that, I just think it played a part in the performance.
