Default The Heavyweights the Amateur level

Hey guys, just started boxing about a month ago. Currently I am 6'2, 230 lbs with alot of it being muscle. I also have a long reach.

Now my question is, are the heavyweights at the amateur level pretty fit? Or are alot of them very fat and out of shape? The reason I ask is because if I cut enough weight, I will be able to fight at cruiser or light and have a big advantage.
