Default Is the weight gap from light heavyweight to cruiser insane?

I think the 25 pound jump from Light Heavyweight to Cruiserweight is insane. There should be a division in between the two.

The next highest weight jump in boxing weight classes is 8 pounds.

I think the original cruiserweight weight of 190 made sense but 200 is just too high to expect the light heavyweights to move up in weight. Either put a division between the two or move cruiser down to 190 again and make a super cruiserweight division at 210.

Thoughts?

How about we turn 105 and 108 into one division and put one in between light heavyweight and cruiserweight?

Do we really need a 105 pound division when there’s a 108 pound division?

Yep 25lbs is too much. Majority of CW are 210+ on fight night anyway, they have the size to compete at HW. Lower it back down to 190.

yea, it should be 190

but no super-cruiser division..... add a super-heavy

make it 240, or 250..... something like that

168-175... light-heavyweight
175-190... cruiserweight
190-240... heavyweight
240+....... super-heavyweight

heavyweight would still be the glamour division

Yeah I suppose I can cosign that, the going from 200 to 190. It's not just the gap between LHW and CW. It's the fact there's virtually NO gap from Cruiserweight to Heavyweight.
You make 200, you fight CW. 201...HEAVYWEIGHT. C'mon.
So yeah, you can make it 190, but don't add any more divisions.
105 to 108 seems a little foolish too.

But hey if you get them to reduce weight divisions or make any changes, go ahead and get rid of a couple sanctioning bodies and belts too, while you're at it.

Thanks !
