Does anyone else miss the days of the HW Champ being the face of boxing?
Just rewatched some old fights and the build ups to Tyson-Spinks, Ali-Frazier,Holyfield-Bowe, and even Lewis-Tyson. Those were some amazing moments.
Mike Tyson walking in with that killer stare and intensity, Spinks(one of the greatest 175LBER'S of all times but out of his league) scared ****less. So much focus on that fight.
Riddick Bowe actually had world tours and countless night-shows. Evander Holyfield on Fresh Prince(lol)
Lennox Lewis-Tyson being such a huge fight DOCUMENTARIES were made of the FIGHT BUILD up..
Lewis-Tyson being rejected by multiple cities and declared an outlaw fight.
Of course Ali-Frazier and how the entire country was divided and watched. One side rooting for Ali, the other rooting for Frazier.

don't care who the face of boxing is
it's about that face actually fighting everybody
Floyd refuses to do it, but gets away with it since casuals still buy
wouldn't matter who the top name is long as he's a fighting champ

OP you're not talking about a single face, you're talking about a competitive heavyweight division.
My answer is yes, I do miss a competitive heavyweight division involving Western-based heavyweights.

For me, Wladimir Klitschko is the face of boxing.
A fighter shouldn't need to be American or "Western", what difference does it make.
