You should be fine. The rule is that free checked luggage should not exceed 62 inches (height+width+lenth) and 50 pounds. Each of yours is 57 inches and 10 pounds. Make sure your boxes are sturdy.

@juandey1988 it's going to depend on your desitination, there is currently a "baggage embargo" for San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) flights (and three additional airports), the Southwest page indicates that cardboard boxes are NOT allowed.

 

The source of the following text is at the bottom of this page: https://www.southwest.com/html/customer-service/baggage/checked-bags-pol.html#baggage

 

Temporary Restriction on Excess/Oversized Baggage

A baggage embargo is being enacted for the below locations from November 15, 2019 through January 6, 2020. The conditions are as follows:
