average height for light welters varies like any other div cos of different builds and that but i'd say around 5''7-5''10 just a rough estimation based on the heights of some prominent light welters....dont worry about your height weight etc just yet. boxing accomodates all different shapes and builds etc

also, i seriously doubt you will gain weight while doing boxing training...if you did you would be the first i have ever seen.

Weight and conditioning are two of the biggest fears and most common questions I think I see, and I see it everywhere on the net for people thinking about starting.

You wanna box? You get your butt to a boxing gym and it will all sort itself out. It's just that simple...
