There is no real barometer.

What makes a strong division is lots of even competition and elite competition at that or close to it.

I have been around boxing for a while though and thus rely heavily on my knowledge and recognition of the sport over resumes or marketability of fighters, wheras casuals tend to judge only by marketability first, resume second, and have no ability to use the eye test. That's why to a casual, a division with no names is a weak division. To me, a division can be full of "names" and be weak.


Right now, I consider the ww division weak, and the hw division strong, for example.
I find your comment I bolded above interesting. I myself cant really stand 147-160, I think the politics in those divisions are killing boxing. But I do agree to an extent, I have wanted to voice the same opinion but have been skeptical. Also I am bias because I prefer 140 and below.
