heavyweight is were all the action is.:thumbsup:
I agree. For me only heavyweight fights are truly exciting. Not saying Jeff Lacy for instance is no pleasure to watch, because he is, but there is nothing like a heavyweight bout (Lewis - Klitschko, Brewster - Golota, Tyson - Berbick, Ali - Foreman, etc.). :)

I am amazed that anyone can call the HW division exciting. Only too often I see two guys who are both 20 lbs over their best weight, and they seem lazy. Best boxers are found in the lighter divisions: Welterweight, Middleweight, and even Light Heavy.

I would pay good bucks to watch a main event featuring two lightweights, and on the undercard, perhaps two guys in the middleweight class. However, I will not walk across the street to watch what passes for heavyweights today.

favorite weight class

The bottleneck in boxing is around 10 lbs either side of 160. All this because the average fit man in North America is about 5-10 and 160 lbs. This is where the best boxers are found, IMO. So anywhere from 147 to 168 ought to produce the toughest crop of fighters. This is in no way taking from the Featherweights, Bantams, etc

The heavys are boring to watch. Half of them can't punch their way out of a wet paper bag. The other half are just plain sloppy and out of shape

Tyson was okay until he quit his vegatarian diet. The guy is a rotton role model for your kids. Sorry, if you are a fan of his

Tough One

It si a tough one fo rme to answer. I love all classes from middle down. the true skill level is higher. It has a lot more technique and "boxing" skills than the upper classes. I have nothing against a good slug fest with the heavy's but for pure boxing, feathers and welters are great.

I love heavyweights, that is where the action was when I was growing up. Lately the heavyweights suck! It is still my fave division, but I like featherweights too. They are just so much quicker, and there isn't all the clinching that you see in a heavyweight fight. I wanna see action, and blood. I don't wanna see 2 guys hugging for 6 rounds.

Floyd Patterson (at 6 ft and 195) would likely take pretty well any heavyweight around today. His weakness was a not so good chin. His hands were fast and he hit hard for a 195 pound guy ... excellent boxing skills, very hard to hit, and he could make you come toward him and the unload on the chin.
