I am so glad the topic of cutting / making weight is being addressed!

Do you recommend:

A) cutting weight slowly to hit fighting (contract) weight BEFORE the weigh-in for a pro fight (weigh-ins the day before the fight)

B) keeping a few pounds on above the fighting weight until just before the weigh in, and SWEAT OFF the final pounds (plastics, sauna, hot bath, etc)

What is your opinion of using a water-loading method (2 gal, 1 gal, 1 gal, 0.5 gal, 0.25 gal) to make weight?

Thanks for your help!
