How to use "Heavyweight" in context?

When most people think of heavyweight, they might think of boxing gloves and muscle. But the heavyweight division of athletics goes beyond that. There are weightlifting and powerlifting tournaments at the heavyweight level. And, while boxing and wrestling can be tough, they're not really heavyweight sports.

The term heavyweight is typically reserved for athletes who weigh more than what's considered a normal weight for their sex and height. Technically, anyone who weighs more than155 pounds (70 kilos) is a heavyweight, but the common definition is athletes who weigh at least twice as much as the next heaviest competitor.
