Eastern European dominance in boxing has to rank up there with some of the biggest myths permeated throughout boxing message board community. As is the myth of American being "passed up" by the international scene.
Out of the 17 weight divisions, there's only one Eastern European boxer that is regarded as the #1 boxer (and/or lineal champ) in his respective division. Compared to about 7 weight divisions where a U.S. boxer is the #1 fighter in their division (and/or lineal champ).
