Question What is a boxer's body fat % at a weigh-in?

Interesting if anyone knows what the body fat % of a boxer is right on the day of the weigh in's before they rehydrate?

that definitely depends on the fighter. they'd actually have a lower body fat to body mass ratio when they were hydrated, too. it's the starvation over several weeks that drives down the body fat. you actually have more fat per pound when you are dry, because you weigh less. guys aren't burning pounds by burning calories in that last week before the weigh in. they do burn some, but it's mostly water that drops off.


something of importance that should be mentioned:

the lowest percentage of body fat is almost always associated with bigger dudes. you're talking about fractions, so bigger numbers on the bottom of the ratio will have a more profound effect. 10 lbs of fat out of 200 lbs of mass is a 5% body fat, etc.


so, while a 122 lber might look more ripped than a 200 lb joe louis, it's the muscle and bone on the 200 lber that reduces the ratio of fat per lb.

Yeah my guess would be sub-5%, for guys that come in and ripped and in shape of course. How much do you think it goes up to once they rehydrate?

Some good points. It's definitely an interesting topic, but yes I do definitely agree that it is something that depends on each individual fighter, and different weight classes.

Some good points. It's definitely an interesting topic, but yes I do definitely agree that it is something that depends on each individual fighter, and different weight classes.

extremely interesting topic. they're at the limits of what a man can do. i think people take for granted what might be the most miserable part of a sport predicated on taking blows to vital organs - making weight.


on the bold:
they're just rehydrating, bro. body fat percentage likely does not go up significantly in the 30 hours they have to eat 4-5 meals.


they're adding more water, which is making them weigh more. their body fat percentage would actually go down, as the overall fat amounts really aren't going to change much.


again, i'm not out there with the proper equipment and stripping these guys down, but that's what my understanding of nutrition and athletics would lead me to believe.


a fascinating study would be an in depth look at the processes by which these professional athletes train so hard, perform at such a high level, and eat so little; and their effects on short and long term health. i'm starting to think it's banned drugs that keep them from falling over.


it's f#cking absurd to think that these guys kill themselves to make weight, put on 15-20 lbs in 30 hours, and fight 12 rounds. brandon rios at 135 should not exist. likewise with chavez at 160. i think they were on hellish drugs.

its never beneficial to be cutting so much weight before a weigh in. The best Athletes only give up 2-3 lbs if any, if they are in shape.

if you cut 15 lbs the night before you won't have the stamina. I've also heard they lie about rehydration weights to make the opponent think they are in with a big dude.

and yes 135 Brandon Rios should exsist, the man is almost always pudgy, even when he was weight drained, he needs to put in the roadwork.

Below 5% would be too dangerous

Bruce lee was around 7% and he was shredded more than most boxers

I think between 7-10% is more accurate, it's unhealthy to have below this anyway
