What are boxing weight classes and divisions?

A weight class, also known as a division, is a measurement weight range for amateur and professional boxers to abide by. In order to fight a boxer must record his weight before the bout as an indication of which weight bracket he falls into. A fighter must not exceed the upper limit of the division for which the event has been scheduled. If a fighter weighs in well beneath the upper limit of then he may consider fighting within a lighter division in order to gain size advantage over his opponent.

The exception to the rule for meeting weight is the heavyweight division in boxing. As the highest of the recognised classes, there is no cap on how large a fighter can be or weigh in at, providing they are passed medically fit by the board of boxing.

Should a boxer not make weight – by weighing in at one or more pounds over the limit – then he may be disqualified or stripped of his purse and privileges to earn a title belt (if on the line).
