What happened to the heavyweights? The last real champion in my view was Lennox Lewis, but since, no-one. The best in the last few years- Klitchko, Byrd, Toney, Peter, Jones are all not up to the standard of say 20-30 years ago, with the exception of Jones in his early career. Boxing must save it's most majestic weight to survive. The problem is, as with most boxing weights, is that why would a lot of talented fighters turn to a dangerous, hard combat sport rather than soccer or baseball. Also most youngsters have too much temptations to deal with- Fast food, alcohol, cigarettes, girls etc. Give replies to this worrying situation.
