How soon is the fight? Do you want to gain muscle of just pack on some fat so you can drop back down?

If you got time focus on compound exercises(squats, dead lifts, bench press, etc...) and lots of lean protein. If you don't have much time, I would drink plenty of fluids and maybe eat a little more carbs than normal(pasta, potatoes, etc....) and just focus on my technique and strength.

Well, in 3 weeks you're not really going to get that much muscle packed on, but I'd go ahead and step up your weight training, as well as eating more pasta type foods. Drink plenty of fluids.

and remember, when/if you fight, don't try and use muscle, use your speed and technique.

Sounds to me that you are rushing into your fight. I say don't take the fight. Wait and find someone your own size. Putting on weight for a fight in 3 weeks should never even be an issue that comes up.
