So a local school is putting together a kick-boxing event in early May.
Just found out tonight. My coach thinks I should do it.
I’m walking around right around 190 +/- 3 pounds. I need to decide in the next few days what weight I want to meet an opponent at.
Weigh-ins are the night before.
I’m probably around 15% b/f (maybe a little lower EDIT: Fuck it, I have no idea what my BF is. Visible four-pack) and just shy of 5’11". I always figured I’d cut at least to 170 for a more serious fight, if not lighter.
This fight is not a huge deal, and at my level being able to practice/train with more intensity closer to the fight is probably going to benefit me more than trying to cut every possible pound I can.
What do you guys think a good weight to toss out there would be? I’m worried if I just do 185 I could end up with someone much larger than me who took the cutting weight thing more seriously, even though it’s not a very serious fight.
Advice is greatly appreciated.
