Best Answer

A boxer does not have to select which weight class they will fight in. They may fight in any weight class as long as they weigh less than the maximum for the class the day before the fight at the weigh-in.

The boxer will schedule fights in both weight classes months apart from each other. This allows the boxer to make the weight for one fight and have several months to gain or lose weight to make the weight for the other class.
