Looks like there's a little bit of additional weight around the midsection for Miguel to work off there. :)

Or, he could just keep it on and fight at 160 like an actual middleweight. ; )

Or the appearance of extra stomach could be the dark shadows of the photos. You know the saying that a photo make you look 10 pounds heavier than you are. Holla!

Yes he could do that, but - even aside from the fact that his trainer is the catch-weight king - it's really (as I am sure you know) quite unlikely to happen. Nice call. :)
