Man I dont think they should move it back down to 190...If I had my way... I'd get The Heavyweight Division back down to 190lbs just like the way I remember it. Sure... nowadays... Heavyweights are so damn heavy... but I reckon it would be a great throwback to the likes of Jack Dempsey and Rocky Marciano who weighed something like 190 - 195 lbs. Now... you have to be at least 200lbs. One of the main reasons that The Heavyweight Limit was changed from 190lbs to 200lbs is simply because of the fact that fantastic Heavyweights such as Jerry Quarry (the greatest Heavyweight to never, ever win a World Championship) could never win it... because they were less than 200lbs. whilst their opponents were a lot bigger. I still reckon it should be back down to 190lbs. So... that leaves a gap from 176-189lbs. So I guess we can call that Cruiserweight (between Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight) or Middle Heavyweight?
PS - I know there were Heavyweight Champions from years ago who didn't weight much at all (Kid Chocolate) but to me, 190lbs. is AWESOME! :laugh:
I know exactly what you are talking about.nah they need to get rid of some sanctioning bodies....narrow them down to two...that would atleast make things somewhat more easier to follow. i find it annoying when i watch a fight and someone always ask me whose the champion and what the ibf is or the wbo or the ring magazine champ..you know what im sayin hah?
