Do you mean ur gonna have ur first real amateur fight or just training? 137 is pretty good for that height but i would drop to 135 if i were you.

If I were you I would get more training. Just some sparring isn't good enough in the amateurs, you need to do a lot and mix your sparring partners up and be sure you're in good fighting shape, which is different than just being in good shape. Once you're in fighting shape I would stay near that weight and not go too far out of it until you get bigger.
