i been think bout it,..i finally make to to 152 which is a good weight for my height (5'10) but i still got alot of softness on my body, even tho i've been lifting weights and running to help burn the fat on my body, i think i can make 141 easily and if im lucky i'll make 135.....

what you guys think?

im 5'7" AND my best weight is 152.. to make 141 i gotta starve myself and it will only make me weak i gave up trying for 141 .. i have never got under 150 pounds yet ..

hey, if you really think about it. you dont have to naturally way 141, just cut weight during camp to make it to weight ins which most of it is just dehydration. Then fight night your back up to 150+ thats what most boxers do.

im almost 5'6 i want to fight in 115 because this is my old weight when i was in H.S. playing basketball i don't know if im ever going to make it back to this old weight because i have gained so much now for doing nothing for years im like 135 a month ago and now started boxing i now 128lbs.

I wanted to make 115 in the next 2months because i wanted to join an amatuer competition i don't care if im just a beginer i just wanted and like to fight but sometimes my body can't take it i get sick my trainer said it is because of fatigue and said my body will just normally adjust and adapt in time if i keep on training in boxing. I will give it time too see it but if not then i should maybe stop.

I'm 5'9 and I always weigh around 130. I guess I can probably go to the closest thing under 130 for fights.
What height do you think most people are in my weight class?

I've also always been interested in knowing what an avarage reach or armlength is. I measured mine a while ago: 73" reach and 27" arm length

Sparring doesn't really give me an idea because it's usually vs someone lighter or heavier.

5'10" making 140 is not easy. Havent' seen your body structure but muscle is heavier than fat, you'll probably have to lose some muscle as well and be weaker at that weight, then again if you do have a LOT of fat...

yea I just measured and my arm length is 28''. 5"9 130 is not a good idea my friend! theres no way you have alot of power or snap at that weight.

What makes me laugh is these amateur boxers saying they wanna get ro 135 or 130 to fight.....

there is no such thing as a 130 or 135 pound weight class in the amateurs. You fight at 125, 132, or 141.

Me, im 5'8 and fight at 132 pounds. Im planning on trying to go to 125, I weighed in at 129.5 for my last fight and I got that low pretty easy. But I haven't fought at 125 since I was a freshman in high school.

Yeah I'm 5' 8" and I think I'd feel more comfortable at 132. My typical weight is anywhere from 140-150. It really just floats around there.
