A press release was sent out Tuesday by Jim Manion, Chairman of the IFBB Professional League, announcing that a change is coming in the 202 and under category in 2011. The division has gained 10 pounds of muscle; beginning with the Sacramento Pro on November 5, 2011, the class will now be called the 212 and under.
I imagine the happiest person to hear the news was Kevin English, the three-time Olympia 202 and under champ who had a tough time making weight every year. Folks like Seth Feroce, Flex Lewis, Mark Dugdale and Eduardo Correra might not be too upset with the change, either. Now, what Jose Raymond, Tricky Jackson and Stan McQuay think about the new rule is another story.
