I was thinking , if a 145lb man and a 245lb man were to compete climbing 9 stories of stairs .is it relative muscle and weight difference .or would it be fair if the lighter man had to carry an extra 100 lbs ? The 245lb mans muscles must be conditioned to carry the extra weight .to be fair the 145lb man should have to carry the same weight?

Weight alone isn't a good measure since it doesn't take other things into account such as percentage of body fat, or overall fitness.
For instance, 245lb football player will completely crush a guy weighing 145lb who does nothing but sit on the couch all day.
