How are we meant to know?

What is your height? Do you have much fat?

Feather weight is enough.

Use Strength vs. Disadvantages

Choose 126 or 135.

I think youd make 108lbs if you really tried, 5'5 is pretty short

Guys that are 5´7 sometimes make 105. Id say 118 in professional boxing and 126 in amateurs. But it all depends on your build.

I'm 5"5 also and a few years ago I got down to 119lbs though I am now walking around at 135lbs at about 11% body fat. I have an average build so I guess you could get that low but of course you would lose strength going that low, really depends on your build and how much body fat you have at the moment. But you should look to go down to at least featherweight if not lower based upon your height.

Work out your body fat percentage then go from there. You really are leaving us with very little information.

Decide this first

join gym

train hard

eat right

spar

decide on having first bout

talk to trainer

worry about weight once youve done this and some inbetween

I have a friend who is about 5'11" and 127 pounds, during our BMQ he got down to 117 lbs. He had some fast hands and power, too bad he quit Boxing (Couldn't handle being hit)

I'm about 5'9" and 160 pounds, trying to get down to 140 or so.
