A Lesson in Heavyweight Professionalism, by Wladimir Klitschko: BGB Stat-watch

From 2000-2015, Wladimir Klitschko has had 35 official weigh-ins. Only twice has he not weighed between 240 and 249 pounds. Both times, he weighed less, not more. That is fifteen years of active boxing where a 6'6 man's weight never fluctuated above a range of nine pounds, even nearing forty years of age. In that time, perhaps many of his opponents missed this potentially crucial element of a winning strategy. Regardless, Wladimir is one of the most consistently prepared athletes of his day, in any weight class. He soon matches the always interesting but far less consistently prepared Tyson Fury. One of few contenders who could weigh more than Mr. Klitschko while still being fit, is Mr Fury. #professionalism
