Aside from Wlad, Vitali, and Haye.....the division is in bad shape.

There's some up and comers who look decent enough though. David Price, Mike Perez, Deontay Wilder, Malik Scott, Bryant Jennings, and even guys like Denis Boytsov and Kubrat Pulev look decent enough so far.

We'll see what happens. There's some younger potential there.

mitchell and wilder are great examples of why the theory is sound. there's no great shame in losing in mitchell's case. it's not at all an indictment of his potential as a fighter that he was unable to win a big HBO fight with only five years of experience with boxing.

Thank you New England. I remember visiting Ron Lyle's gym in Northeast Denver when I was a little kid in the late 80's, and there were tons and tons of HW size kids training in there. I went back to his gym again a few years ago before he died, and there were virtually NO HW size athletes training in his gym. It was all smaller weight kids ranging from 120-160 mostly.

But it's not just the US, the division as a whole is weaker than it's ever been aside from 3 fighters. There's some younger potential out there though, so we'll see what happens. Malik Scott is BY FAR the most gifted American HW and the most pure fighter skill wise.

we've got a very different definition of gifts, then, especially at HW. scott can't break a grape.

He lacks power, but in terms of skill I'll take Scott > Wilder and Jennings

The problem with this theory is that being an excellent athlete doesn't mean you are also an excellent fighter.
People who thrive in boxing have something more than just athletic ability.

being an excellent athlete much better than being a regular guy. most of the current american HW don't have the mental strength to stay away from the buffet and train hard.

being coordinated, strong, huge, and fast is better than being tony thompson.

just think about the argument you're making...

put these guys in a boxing gym at 10 and you'd have dedicate and driven fighters.

People need to realize that being a worldwide sport, US isn't always going to hold the torch when it comes to boxing anymore. We have to face reality and quit making excuses on the NFL bull****. One day there will a new American great to have that torch and since we all so called love boxing, appreciate the ones ruling it now.
