What Do Light Welterweights 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 Welterweights fighting that we have on file. Where we have seen catch-weights implemented within the welterweight range, we have made note. This page is meant to answer the question only of what your standard Light Welterweight 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 Welterweight Division, AKA Junior Welterweight, AKA Super Lightweight: 140 lbs
Viktor Postol VS Lucas Matthysse - Contested at Light Welterweight
Postol: Official: 139.5 - Unofficial: 148
Matthysse: Official: 139.5 - Unofficial: 151
Humberto Soto VS Antonio Orozco - Contested at Light Welterweight: I don't know what the specifics of this billed Light Welterweight/140-pound bout were but Soto weighed in right on the limit and Orozco weighed in within a pound. This was also slightly fuzzy as HBO's TOTT had Orozco weighing 140.5 and Boxrec had him listed at 140.75.
Soto: Official: 140 - Unofficial: 154
Orozco: Official: 140.5 - Unofficial: 154
Adrien Broner VS John Molina - This bout was meant to be at a limit between the light welterweight maximum of 140 and a special +1 rule bleeding into the welterweight class, by contract. So, very technically speaking, Broner came in at welterweight, Molina at light welterweight, despite only a pound difference.
Broner: Official: 141 - Unofficial: 157
Molina: Official: 140 - Unofficial: 154
