It’s not Old School, It’s being a Profesional with Common Sense.

This past weekend we had several fighters having problems making weight and one big fight was actually scrapped due to this. The culprit in scrapping the big fight was Joan Guzman. Campbell-Guzman was a fight that many were looking forward too. It was a fight that would help clear who the best at light weight is.

Guzman fucked all that up by coming in way too heavy and saying he was too weak from making the weight to even fight. What bullshit! What was his team thinking 3 weeks ago when Joan stepped on the scale? Where is the professionalism there?!

There’s quite a few writers saying that the old school way of staying in shape between fights is all but gone… Fighters like Shane Mosley, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Beranrd Hopkins respect boxing enough to stay in shape between fights. But the thing is, it’s not old school but fucking common sense! It’s called being a professional. If these fighters don’t want to be professionals then fine their asses for blowing a big promotion and fucking a fighter who respects the fight and sport enough to come fully prepped.. I’m talking about Campbell here. Guzman should be the last in line for another big fight cause all that shit he was popping off and he couldn’t even make weight?! A big fight and promotion was blown, he must be used as an example. Suspend him for his lack of effort and integrity. Take away the big pay days until he is ready to take away the big portions at the dinner table! If I was Campbells manager I’de be suing Guzmans ass.

Sergio Mora had problems making weight too and had to dry out for over an hour to make the weight. Keep in mind that he was over by four pounds the night before and he was trying then to cut. This obviously took it’s tool on Serio’s body. The result was a lackluster performance and huge loss against a motivated and very fit Vernon Forrest. To fuck around with making weight against a world class fighter in Vernon Forrest guaranteed disaster and that’s what happened in Mora loosing decisively against Vernon.

Just a few months ago, Mora was on top of the world, now he’s on the bottom of the totem pole cause he was came in too heavy. He said he needed at least eight weeks to prepare. Maybe so, but what he needed to do was keep himself fit so if he was rushed into a short camp making weight wouldn’t have been an excuse. But that’s exactly the excuse he gave. All Sergio had to do was take responsibility and this shit wouldn’t have happened. That’s all it comes down too… Act like a pro.

That’s why old school fighters stayed in the gym and fought often. It kept them sharp and in shape. They knew that things happen fast in boxing and they wanted to be ready. The young James Toney knew this and did it by fighting often, as did Julio Cesar Chavez. This also allowed both to have long careers.

To them it wasn’t old school, but fucking common sense and being pros.
