Have corresponded with Kazumichi from Winning USA and his advice was that if I am a lightweight then I should go for the medium but if I am above lightweight then I should choose the large size.
The Winning website advises the following:
HEADGEAR Size List (FG-2900 & FG-5000):
Medium: 21.0 - 23.0 inch / 54 - 59 cm.
Large : 22.5 - 24.5 inch / 57 - 62 cm.
2 Large: 23.5 - 25.5 inch / 60 - 65 cm.
3 Large: 25.0 - 28.0 inch / 63 - 68 cm.
Would you recommend that I go for the medium or large?
Later in this thread bookmen states he returned the Large size because though it was good fit at first glance, it was too large for sparring - it wouldn't stay put when shots hit him.
Considering you're weight and height, and the fact your head size is 22.5 inches like bookmen's, than the medium size would seem to be what you should get. If it's too large then it won't stay put and you'll get the double impact effect.
I just ordered the Large fg-2900, and I'm 183cm/6' and 193kg/204 pounds.
My head is around 58.8 cm or 22 & 3/4 or 22 & 7/8th and I'm getting the large. So hopefully It'll stay put in sparring. If it's too large I'll just take some HGH
