i dont follow boxing too avidly...and i have a simple question. do boxers cut as much weight as MMA guys? or since there are so many weight classes do they just fight at their natural weight?

yeah they have to cut a lot of weight too, oscar lost a lot of weight with the pacquiao fight at 147. yeah weight cutting in boxing is very much the same as mma, we have fighters that can easily make weight and we have others that cannot make weight.
