A no nonesence weigh- in for a change... This is going to be good.


-SouthPawFlo :

Chino looks a lot Thinner than he usually does, I hope that means his conditioning is on point and he can bring relentless pressure for 12 full rounds....


-stormcentre :

Chino is not trim . . . someone else (in this forum) was saying Maidana was looking really trim. Not that it always matters, but his midsection is still a little chubby.


-SouthPawFlo :

Yeah he doesn't have "love handles" which is odd for a welterweight, be he entered the ring as a middle weight last time, we'll see what he weighs going into the ring tonight.


-brownsugar :

Hispanics almost always have that smooth layer of fat. Its very misleading. But you can almost see every bone in Chino's head ... Even his eye sockets. He is trim... but not sickly trim. He'll weight about 158 tonight and be nigh unstoppable.
