The creatine is going to make your muscles retain more water than they normally would, thus making cutting weight harder.
Creatine won't inhibit fat loss, though, so if you want to take it up until a week before a fight, that's how long it usually takes for the retained water to be removed completely, but to be safe, you should probably kick it 10 days before.
