- WEIGHT SEPARATIONS
- Whether in the agreed upon weightclass or in a "Catch weight"
bout the fighters must be within the allowed spread as noted below on the ISCF weight chart.
- If a fighter needs to lose weight to make his/her weight, the most they can
lose in a 2 hour period is "2 LBS."
- CATCH WEIGHTS
- This is when say a Lightweight fighter at 150 lbs and a Welterweight at
160 lbs fight.
- What you need to look at in this case is the most narrow weight spread,
which is always in the lower weight class of the two. For Lightweight, the
weight spread is 10 lbs where is as in the Welterweight class, it goes to a 15

lightest fighter. So for this example, (Lightweight at 150 lbs and a
Welterweight at 160 ) this would be OK as a catch weight. However if the
Lightweight fighter was 149 and the Welterweight at 160, that's 11 lbs, and it
would NOT be allowed. The same if it were a pound the other way, where the
Welterweight would weigh 161, again, out of the limits of the lower spread so no
