i'll get down to 147-148 dieting and working out, then cut the rest in water weight. i'll fight at 152 for for local shows, but for tournaments i get down to 141.

everyone's body is different. i cut 10 pounds before 1 fight and i felt and fought fine.

I try not to cut weight. That ***** drains me. i'd rather slowly lose weight while i get in shape. 148lbs. That's the lowest i've ever weighed. I'm in good fight shape. Physically fit, not mentally though. I gotta cut mental weight.

There's no 160 division in amateur boxing smart guy. Now make us believe you actually fight....

Most of my guys cut weight. My most experienced guy walks around 6-8 lbs above his weight. He cuts water weight pretty easily, he'll lose 6 lbs in an hour of light training in a sweat suit, and rehydrate with no problems. Some kids have a much harder time though...

i last fought at 46 kg (101 lbs) but weighed in at 45 kg and really could have fought at 44 kg, but i had a good fight set up at 46 kgs division so meh, i was kinda dieting then, i ate well most of the time, but ate junk and that about 1-2 times per week...and nah i didnt really cut weight, just didnt eat before i weighed in

that was in november, ive grown slightly taller and filled out a bit since then, i had a break and weighed 51 or 52, then got back into training about 6 weeks ago and im now pretty fit and lean again at 49-50 kgs, so i grew a bit..im eating well 6 days a week, and then eating whatever i want on one day...ill make the 48 kg division pretty easily, just wont eat before i weigh in, maybe a little sweating if i have too


i could maybe make 46 again if i dieted strictly (like not have my one day a week where i eat treats) and sweated a bit...but i dont really see the point, its not like ill have some massive advantage, and ive got a six pack and am lean at 48....

so no i dont cut weight lol i guess thats the point
