The next most glamorous division, middleweight, is ruled by a fighter who has arguably gotten FIVE gift decisions in recent years. Thatís the guy most people feel is the best boxer in the entire world.

In the third most glamorous division, welterweight, the champion with the best resume is 147 years old.

The next best resume belonging to a champion at welterweight belongs to an alcoholic who has been too busy partying to focus on boxing.

The next most glamorous division, lightweight, is being ruled by a natural featherweight who could probably make 122 if he really wanted too.

The only two current fighters to actually become undisputed champions have no name victories on their resume.
That's pretty damning. Can't argue with any of it.

This response right here is perfectly spot on and straight up reality.
Picking out negative perspectives by which to judge something is completely subjective, agenda driven, and intentionally negative. Each and every negative viewpoint has a brighter, 'glass half full', counter viewpoint.
Basically, it all depends how you look at things, your overall attitude. You can paint Fury's comeback as a stain on pro boxing, or treat it as an amazing story of perseverance, restoration, and hope.

Personally, I think it takes just as much energy to be negative as it does to be positive. Everything has positive AND negative aspects to it. It's up to each of us to focus on whatever we choose...

What motivated me to type the words on the screen and hit send? Am I being honest with myself?

Context is everything.

Bowe did not get his career "ended" by Golota.

Bowe had nothing left after the Holyfield trilogy & his weight problems started to derail him.



Nah, he's just an Anthony Joshua stan, who spends his entire life attacking anyone who's a threat to his legacy in anyway (Deontay Wilder, Mike Tyson, or any great heavyweights from the past)
That makes sense.

You lot are so predictable. LMAOOO.
It's not an excuse, it's the truth.

Mike Tyson actually went to prison and didn't fight between the ages of 24 and 28

Bowe actually retired at the age of 29 after the Golota fights. He was done.

And Ali still didn't go to prison you 15 year old moron.

90s heavyweights were worse.

Top guys were 1 cruiserweight, Mike Tyson, coming from a jail time, 100 y old Foreman, just a little younger Holmes and so on.

Lets not pretend like 90s are great at heavyweight.

Mike Tyson -Spinks is the most pathetic unification fight I have ever seen. "Golden 80s" unification! Spinks , unbeaten lineal/The Ring champ, was scared to death. He probably urinated in his pants when he saw Mike coming to the ring.

Purely focusing on heavyweights due to the saying "as the HW division goes so goes Boxing."
This is one of Boxing's strongest era's. I'd say the 80s were pretty weak. Given we only hear about 5 names- SRL/Hagler/Hearns/Duran/Mike. The HW division in the 80s was extremely weak. I'll always disagree with any excuses made for Mike Tyson losing- he was HYPE promoted to no ends during the 80s where he Dominated a very weak division. Once the division picked up in the 90s that was no longer the case.
People let nostalgia warp their opinion.
They also let "looks" warp there opinion. You cannot expect the giants of the modern HW division to run around looking shredded like dudes did in the 80s. HWs in the 80s were toothpicks compared to these guy's. Here's some science for y'all. You can either bulk up or cut- one gives you size and power- the other leans you out and gives you that magazine body look. You cannot do both. Tell Michael Spinks fight Andy Ruiz and he gets stopped within 30 seconds. Looks aren't everything. Bowe is praised purely for beating Holyfield- that's got to a weak division if you can get eternal praise just for beating ONE guy right? So let's cut the BS.
These current Heavyweights range in difficulty and danger but I'd like them to make interesting fights in any era. Wilder would be a monster in any era, in fact, in previous era's where HWs were a lot smaller- he'd be unstoppable. I've seen bums tag Ali and he's the greatest Heavy ever. Bums have dropped Ali. Wilder would've definitely given Ali a run. Tyson Fury has never been seen before in the history of the division. He's a giant amongst heavyweights. Moves on his feet like he's a cruiserweight. Has just shown in his last fight he can be very aggressive and use that size to his advantage.
As for the brit trying to taunt Americans in here- STOP aj fanboys made every excuse after he got dominated by a bum.
