Other than very few Yanks, that honour has passed to Eastern Europe. Fact.Fighters there might lack the flamboyance of some of the Americans but they more than compensate for that in hunger and fundamental basic technique.

that "HW savior" has been boxing for six years total...

and finally, it's a sh#t division right now without american talent. is it really something to brag about that it's largely european now?


i'll take the 70's, when american big men actually boxed, instead of the fat guys who got cut from the basketball team (thompson,) and the mitchells and wilders of the world, who started boxing when they were almost fully grown men (mitchell was 25 )
