    5 pounds is a small amount to cut before a fight. I know that I carry more water weight then that and I can cut that the morning of a fight by sitting in a sauna. I weigh 200 lbs so I may be carrying more room to play then you have. The night before the fight I would cut back on my calories and then sit in a suana the day of the fight. I would carry some food (fruit) and water with me to the weigh in to have right after. 5 lbs should be easy, it is more of problem when you have 15 lbs to cut and you do not do it all of the time. Good luck.
