What Do Light Heavyweights Rehydrate To? An Unofficial Weight Reference List
The following is a list compiled from our main page:
Fight Night Boxing Weights: A List Of Unofficial Weigh-in Weights After Rehydration
Please note: This particular reference list page is only for Light Heavyweight fighting that we have on file. Where we have seen catch-weights implemented within the Light Heavyweight range, we have made note. This page is meant to answer the question only of what your standard Light Heavyweight rehydration will look like for educational purposes, whether you are interested academically or for betting purposes, debate, whatever. I hope you find it helpful if you've recently done a search for it. If you like what we do here, please bookmark, share, link to us, comment, etc. If you have a correction on any typos or special, relevant information you feel we should make note of, any error or anything at all, please feel free to comment. What we get the most response to we will likely work the most to expand on. Thanks for your visit.
Light Heavyweight Division: 175 lbs
Sergey Kovalev VS Nadjib Mohammedi - Contested at Light Heavyweight
Kovalev: Official: 174.5 - Unofficial: 183.5
Mohammedi: Official: 173 - Unofficial: 180.5
Jean Pascal VS Yunieski Gonzalez - Contested at Cruiserweight range, but both considered to be campaigning at light heavyweight. It's my understanding that there was a catch-weight agreement for 178 pounds.
Pascal: Official: 178 - Unofficial: 188
Gonzalez: Official: 177.5 - Unofficial: 189

As it's technically within the Light Heavyweight Class:
Andre Ward VS Paul Smith - Contested at Light Heavyweight class, catch-weight limit of 172 pounds. Smith misses the agreed upon mark somehow at 176.4, renegotiating with Ward with penalty money paid out, to missing a renegotiated rehydration limit the morning of the fight to be no more than 181 and hitting 184, renegotiating with penalty again, then having Ward lopsidedly beat him up and give him back his penalty money. So, Smith is no less than 184 in the ring that night, presumably, and almost certainly more if Smith was trying at all. A total mess, professionally speaking.
RNS commentator Barry Tompkins says Andre Ward thinks 168 is still best for him right now, even though it's "a little bit of a struggle".
TOTT for Ward/Smith, no rehydration listed by RNS.
