It seems like you are heading into that no man's land where you are going to be a very small heavyweight, but too big for any other weight class. I looked up boxing weight classes and cruiserweight limit is 90.7 kg, which is not going to be fun to cut to if you are 6'4" and already pushing 205 walking around weight at 17 years old.
Not sure where I'll end up, but if I finish up at 6'5" or 6'6" don't see any problems fighting at HW at easily over 240+.
Am basically not going to cut much any more and just get to where nature intended. Will maybe cut a little bit like for this fight to get to 195 or so but moreso that'll just be from straight up cardio calorie burning. Not so much restricting food.
Have spent pretty much my whole career to date staving to make weight for fights and divisions. And never realized how much it messes with your head until recently.
One week into training camp and am leaving the kitchen one night at 3 am, sneaking up the stairs and my dad sees me and asks, "What's up?"
"Do you seriously have food hidden under your shirt?"
"Yes...." Still trying to hide a ham sandwich and twinkie.
"You realize you don't have to starve any more right?"
"I got no idea what the hell I'm doing!"
