That was my point. The American heavyweight scene is dreadful.
I feel good about the future though (less so for the americans though as most the upcoming talent is from europe and further afield). there seems to be a few decent young fighters with room for improvement such as Price, Helenius, Fury, Wilder, Spilizka(I'm sure there are more I've missed) who are starting to climb the ranks and there are some decent fighters in the Am's as well (Antony Joshua)
When the Klitschko's call it a day they won't be replaced by fighters as talented but the talent that remains will be much more evenly matched which will lead to fun exciting matches instead of one sided beatdowns. (more Gatti-ward type fights) that will draw more fans in and hopefully more aspiring boxers as well which can only help the sport.
