Back home already, ****ing gutted.

Was supposed to be 54kg's weighed in at 55.4kgs
Doctors would not let me try and lose it (doubt i would of could lost that weight anyways)

Thats a ****ing bastard cos by the looks of the sheet there was only me and another lad at 54kg with birth dates of 89, so we would not even of been boxing today. Straight to the finals in april 1st
but because i was to heavy thats me out

Could of been Junior Scottish Champ, but thats out the ****ing window

how come you did not make the weight? I figured boxers would constantly check there weight a day before a fight.

Hmm, your trainer should be on top of that for you, especially if you're inexperienced. I had the same thing happen to one of my fighters once, when I was new at it. That'll never happen again! :)

you probably just naturally growing mate so the doctor was right not to try to make you lose it. It's gutting but you'll have other chances.

I guess that depends on where you're at. In this country they'd NEVER let that happen in a championship tournament. Local tournaments maybe, but not the nationals. And neither should they. It would be ridiculous to have a light heavy champ who was really a heavy. :)

People are all shapes and sizes. Manny Pac, one of the sports biggest stars, was 48 kg when he was 17. I don't see how 54kg is "very little" for a 17 year old at all...

If you guys are that close in weight then you should arrange a club bout between you two after the tournies over. Kick his ass man and leave knowing your the better man.................Rockin':boxing:

for a caucasion male of 17 years old and 5'8 / 5'9 54 kg is very light particulary in this day and age. But thats his physique and he's molded his fight style on it.

My point was that you should have been weighed on the same day of the weigh in, so you knew what the scales would say when you go in there. It's not supposed to be a guessing game, it's something you need to take control over. Bring your own scales if they don't have a trial weight, and weigh yourself in private.

My point is a lot of people fight in lower weight divisions as adults, so if you're a bantamweight at 24, you're probably not a middleweight at 17. :)

I have a 13 year old middleweight, and a 17 year old jr. fly. People come in all shapes and sizes, so weighing 54kg doesn't need to have anything to do with whether he's 7, 17 or 27.

Det kommer jo an på om han vil vinde. Så er man jo nødt til at veje det man skal :)
