Default Do you think height classes would be better than weight classes?

Isn't it more fair fighting someone who is same height as you rather than weight?

No. If it was that much of an advantage the sport would be dominated by beanpoles. The way it is, you get more stylistically intriguing fights.

That's dumb. Then you would get naturally big boned and heavy guys built like mike tyson steamrolling guys like errol spence. Spence is 5 9 and a half, Tyson is 5 10. They would be in the same class by your rules.

The equation for impact involves mass. The higher the mass, the more impact it can generate. Guys who weigh 300 pounds have substantially more potential power than a guy who weighs 120 pounds at the same height.

Also bone density factors into durability. Bones are malleable, they adapt and change as we grow older. The heavier a person is, the higher his bone density becomes as he grows older.

Would dudes be able to wear lifts on their shoes if they wanted to move up to a different division?

If paul williams tried to block mike tyson's hooks, he would end up with broken arms. He would be flying across the ring when tyson throws.

Truth. I'm even a little bigger than Paul and I can say from experience that guys Tyson's size will knock the breath right out of you and move you around even when you're blocking.
