  • Heavy weights

    If wilder, AJ, whyte, Fury all had the same skill set, but were all super middle weights would we care as much for them? If AJ was a 168 lber would he be as popular? selling out 90,000 arenas? Same skill set and past accomplishments (Olympic gold medal). If not for being HWs would we care as much for them? Or do they deserve this attention because they are actually good?

    Whats the appeal size or skill?

    Or do you think they have both, size and skill and that's why their names dominate the thread topics and Boxingscene headlines

        I actually think P4P heavyweights are overrated and the small weights with their throw as many slapper punches as they can in round are overrated. The amount of times I've seen a so called great small fight go an entire fight not throwing one jab is unreal, and I find it a bore to watch.

          the answer to your question is 'no'

          because universal appeal on boxing is based on dmg

            Methinks you're trying to devalue heavyweight out of personal bias.

              Its true that Heavyweight has low skill. There are big fat guys who are ranked top 10. Its a joke. fighters above middleweight are not much better.

                  Pro Latin fighters hence pro lower weight and anti heavyweight

                    An intelligent response, but nah. There's nothing like skilled heavy weight matches. Heavys are king of the sport.
