god knows what chico is playing at he's going straight past 140 without having throwing a punch. maybe it is gatti next like what was reported.

well it is a calculated gamble sounded like he was looking for a good match up . I wil tell you that I like him against Cintron that would be a barn burner.\
and at #140 he would run in to Castillo,Hatton,Casamayor etc. guys I don't think he wants any part of anymore.

Corrales looked kind of chunky in his interview last night.I'm not sure his chin can take the welter power.He can box a little (along with his power),but he has to work on not getting hit so much. Will the weight give him more power,slow him down or what?:confused: :dunno:

I like Corrales but think this may be a bad move.

I would like to see him move up gradualy. Take a few fights at140.

On ESPN last night he was talkin like he wants to be a brawler & not box as much. that + moving up 2 weight classes could be very bad for him.

Guys forget about weight classes for a second.
Chico at 138-139 (I think that was his last weight-in) looked like an ugly, starving, sick, and dying drug addict super model.

I really think that his body is not allowing him to get any lower.
:D I think you may be right .All these tall freaky guys in smaller weight divisions look like that.

I think that Dave hit it right on the head. he can only make 147 now. and he might have to train down to make that weight.

hell why not go to #154 and take on Stinxs and maybe a returning Tito or Kostya now thats interesting too see how much power he takes with him to that type of weight.

I think that 147 is perfect for him. He can get a lot of big fights make a lot of money and even get that 3rd match against Castillo.

castillos at 140 and corrales couldnt deal with lightweight boys let alone welterwights. I see him beating gatti but geting punished by Cotto or margarito.

correct.

chico has the heart for the weight but not the chin.

I dont see him in a fight with Cotto or Margarito. I can see him fighting Zab or Cintron. But I think somebody can make weight for the 3rd Castillo corrales fight.

when they fought for the second time castillo weighed in at 140lb and obviously made no atempt to make 135lb, they fought anyway and castillo got the ko. chico wasn't happy to say the least.

I knew that but with Corrales being at 147 why wouldnt they make weight at 140 or 147?

I know that. I saying why wouldnt they make it. IF Castillo beats Hatton and Corrales beats who ever he fights. It would be a huge fight.
