In that sense, Staropoli He said: «I am coming off two losses and I suffered a lot with the weight, in fact, I did not manage to gain weight in my last fight. I felt very embarrassed because not gaining weight for a fight is irresponsible for any fighter. I said in the past, the day that I do not weigh, because for me it is a lack of respect for the organization and the opponent, that is the day that I will change divisions ».
“I walk around 93 kilos (205 pounds) and from 93 kilos to 77 kilos (170 pounds) is a long journey. I can probably still do 77 kilos, but then my performance hampers and that’s the problem. The fight is against the opponent, not against the scale. Sometimes it seems that they gave you permission to leave the hospital instead of looking like you are preparing to fight, “he also emphasized.

I’m a 93-kilogram guy, so 84 kilograms (185 pounds) is easy. The effort to make 84 kilos will be minimal and I will be able to be 100 percent in my fights.
This is a new beginning. This is a new beginning for everything that I have been through, for all the lessons that life has given me, this is a new beginning for me and not only for me but for everyone who is behind me because I do not do this for myself same, there are many people with me. I know that with a victory and positioning myself well, I can help a lot of people “, concluded the” Pepi “, Laureano Staropoli.
