"Most underweight/skinniest/unhealthy looking boxer that you have ever seen... ever?"

Thomas Hearns is one of my all time favorites and if it wasn't for his loss to Sugar Ray Leonard... I could honestly say that he was the greatest Welterweight Boxer of all time... but somestimes when I look at him I think "Geez... I cannot believe that he can kick everybody's ass"... and wonder what the Health Authorities and all of that would be thinking! I think the same thing when I look at all of the 6'1" Middleweight of recent years such as Bernard Hopkins, Iran Barkley (WHEN HE WAS GOOD... AND A MIDDLEWEIGHT) and Jermain Taylor. Apparently... Kelly Pavlik is a 6'2 AND A HALF INCH Middleweight. You've also got the 6'1" Welterweight in Paul Williams, the 6'7" and less than 200 POUND Heavyweight from years gone by known as Ernie Terrell... and finally... the tallest of any of the smaller fighters I have ever seen... Diego Corrales... who has worked as a Lightweight... and at even further down weight classes... and I think he is 5'11"!!!

Which boxer do you look at and think... "GODDAMN IT... HOW DOES HE GET BY?" :thumbsup:

scott harrison only had 5% body fat at 126. this nearly killed him trying to make weight. he'll be forced up past 130 to 135 if he fights again.

When he was still fighting in the mid-Eighties, current Trainer Freddie Roach looked like that to me when I'd see him fighting on ESPN. It's hard to describe,but he just didn't look all that healthy.

Former featherweight champion Sandy Saddler looked freaky.
In general I think anybody over 6' that weighs 160 or less is abnormal.
I guess you could be a real small boned person:dunno:

Niko-
Excellent example in Sandy Saddler. His freakish height for a Featherweight made him look sickly,and I'm sure a lot of his opponents,at least early on his career, probably made the tragic mistake of thinking he was frail. They soon learned otherwise once the fight started :)
