Default What weight class should I fight in?

Okay, so I realize this isn't the training forum, but this one gets more hits, so...

I'm 5'6, and weigh about 147 pounds...this is me doing a little bit of training...

so, based on my body size, what weight class do I look like I belong in? By the way, I didn't make the captions...I had someone upload these videos for me, and he decided to clown me a little bit.

If you were born in '80 like your screen name would indicate and you just started training recently....

I'd say stick with the armchair division.

Here's a serious answer:

Your look physic looks good. IMO if you should fight at 130-135, with you're height you should be able to move down to those weight class with very little problem.

You are good muscle tone but you look very raw still. Here is mine.... I start with short punches/range, then combos to out to multiple combos... etc. You should keep your hands by ur temple to protect from hooks and try to bring ur defense with you when you roll.

The sarcastic answer is none of them.

Realistically though you should probably consult a trainer first. In all likely scenarios, you'll be put in a class anywhere from 10-15 lbs yer optimal weight in order to be stronger and bigger than your opponents.

also you flat footed. Step with your punch. And develop a hook. extend your arms unless you are thinking about combos.

I know you are asking about the weight but I want to make a comment after watching the youtube videos, where is the head or body movement, yo look so stiff and work on the speed. I know you are not in action but look at them and you look very stiff

you do need a trainer. and if you are 147 you should probably be at about 135.
