This again?

You need the frame to do it.

You're treating weight as if you can pick and choose as you like

Height don't mean sh1t if you can kick the sh1t out of everyone at that weight.

Why not? If you fit the weight, you fit the weight.

I'm 5'10 and I fight anywhere from mw to lhw no problem. I just have more options as to what style to use at mw opposed to lhw where I have to mainly fight inside or get them to reach a little.

It's about style, not height. A 6'7 hw can't fight like a 5'10.

Look at Mike Tyson for an example of how being short can work to your advantage if you tailor your style to fit.

Mike Tyson fought as a 5'10" heavyweight.

What is unusual about a 5' 11'' lightheavy weight? Every fighter has an ideal weight at which they are all muscle with no more than about 9% of their bodyweight being fat. Some fighters may feel good with a bodyfat as low as 4%. If you are 5' 11'' and you have taken off all extra fat and you weigh 175 then that is where you should fight. The great Archie Moore was about 5' 11'' and I think Roy Jones was also 5' 11''. Mike Tyson was about 5' 11'' and he would have had to cut off a leg to fight at 175. You can't just pick a weight and fight there. You have to fight at your body's natural weight for the best results.
