Pacquiao or De La Hoya: Who will be adversely affected by move to 147? – Boxing – ESPN

Although Pacquiao would be coming up a dozen pounds from his previous high weight and De La Hoya would be coming down just three from his last fight, Mackie Shilstone, the conditioning guru who first came to prominence by turning Michael Spinks into a credible heavyweight, believes that the smaller man still has the advantage.

“Even though he might have less weight to lose, the man coming down is going to have the bigger problem,” Shilstone told ESPN.com from his New Orleans training center. “It’s easier building a guy up, even if he has a longer way to go, because regardless of what condition he’s in, the one losing weight runs the risk of losing the wrong kind of weight.
