Default My body measurements

Im 17, my height is 5'8 roughly, it may be a couple inches more or maybe 1 inch shorter. My reach, fingertip to fingertip across the chest is 68', armpit to FIST it was 25'. I weigh 63-64kg, when I started boxing 4 months ago I was 61kg so ive packed on a couple and its all muscle. I have my first amatuer bout at the end of the month in the light weltherweight division. Is my reach and everything normal, short or long considering my height? and will I grow more? Personally I think everything is in order, its just I was a bit worried about my reach as sometimes I lose out when me and my opponent jab at the same time, but it depends how hard I go in with it. Thanks.

Your height, weight and reach is pretty much identical to mine. And by anatomical standards is pretty average.
And I agree, there are so many variables - that question is impossible to answer. There's no such thing as an optimal body type. Just like it's impossible to tell which car is fastest simply by how long it is.
And why you asking us if you're gonna grow more? Who I look like, Jesus? look at yo daddy foo!
lol... jk
