240-250 lbs. Maybe 220 would be even better but as an org manager I never allow such fighters to compete at heavyweight because of the speed and cardio advantage. Recently tried to compete with 188 lbs fighter in 265+ qfc tournament and I won most fights with ease. Id say the lighter the better but to be fair to your opponents dont go under 240 lbs.
Ok thanks for the advice. I never knew the speed advantage was that big at lower weights. I kind of just thought the heavier the better. But apart from the speed, cardio is s big issue for 280 pounds heavyweights. I'm learning that more and more. And for strikers, my experience so far mirrors the advice that striker should be pretty light.
Should "kickers" be even lighter? Logically, a tall heavy guy can pump the jab forever but kicking takes more energy, at least in reality. Is there a difference here in tycoon?
