we seen today that Heavyweight Boxing Can Be Entertaining when Two Fighters are actually closer to the SAME SIZE instead of having these GIANTS who are extremely BORING and Robotic and SLOW

it should be a SUPER HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION!

Heavyweight is fine at 200.

However, the smaller HWs like Adamek, Chagaev, Minto, Grano, Hamer, Bakhtov, etc should be fighting at cruiserweight. Chambers has finally decided to do it.

And the US networks should televise some cruiserweight fights.

It never works because everyone goes after the the top heavyweight no matter what the weight limits are. How many boxers than won the cruiserweight tittle stayed at that weight and did not move to heavyweight? Not many. If you make a 220 lbs. class and an unlimited class for fighters over 220 lbs. then the unlimited tittle will become the big prize and the moneymaker. As soon as a boxer wins the 220 lbs. tittle they will challenge the champion of the unlimited class. The boxer that can beat any boxer in the world regardless of weight will always have the prestige and make the most money. A 220 lbs. class would be a stepping stone. Just my opinion based on what I have seen over the years.

People are getting bigger. MMA is newer and the Middle weight is 180 lbs or something. Light HW is 205.

I know that Chisora was much heavier but he's not much bigger. The heavyweights have grown dramatically in the last 30 years.

Ali was considered a big heavyweight at 220. Now we have Haye - who's ideal weight is 210 - fighting against Wlad, who weighs 245 without an ounce of fat on him.

There are so many great fights we could have involving fighters around the 220 mark but they don't want to fight each other because the Holy Grail is to beat the behemoths who are over 2 metres tall & close to 250 pounds.

It's like Marvin Hagler fighting a Super-featherweight Floyd Mayweather.

We do not need 17/18 divisions. 10 divisions starting from 50kgs at flyweight up to 100kgs at Heavy. With 8 in between.
A super heavyweight division is a crap idea. ... for starters the fight tonight wouldn't have happened unless haye at 210 moved up into your superheavyweight division anyway which completely defeats the whole idea. But more than that, prime mike tyson at 215 would beat any fighter in the world today. same could be said for prime evander or prime ali, all of which are under 220.

There were 245 lb fighters 30 years ago too. This that you speak of would be an abomination to the sport

Good poster. - ddangerous Nice looking pup.  Have anyother Pepsi - ABOSWORTH

I can see the arguments both for & against.

Boxing has always evolved to match mans growth. In the initial days there was Light & Heavy, Heavy being over 140lbs (10 stone). We need to evolve some more but the governing bodies don't want this as they get 3% of each title bout.

10 divisions is enough. -50 kg great for the bottom weight & 100kg is great for the top.

Does anyone think that we need MORE than TEN Champions at each weight?
