Default Re: How prevalent is weight cutting in the amateurs?

I don't know what the magic number is, but in my opinion, if you're dehydrating more than 4 or 5 pounds for amateur boxing, you're risking a bad performance and your health.
Me personally, I never cut more than 3 pounds in water.
I go in with the mentality that I could be the first one fighting, and in most cases, that leaves you with maybe 2 hrs to rehydrate and warm up.
