Thats crazy

I think this many weight classes is just ridiculous. It confuses fans and makes paper champions that shouldn't have a title. Unfortunately, everyone wants a title nowadays so might as well make 40 of them! I myself at 230 would be a clear heavyweight.

There are 4 major heavyweight titles 5 if u count the Ring magazine champion & probably 30 others lol.

Only 4 that matter are the WBC, IBF, WBA & WBO & like I said some just go buy Ring magazines champs & ratings.

I didn't realize that there were so many weight classes. The ones I've been watching are the light weights at 108 pounds. But the boxers are in top condition and every inch of their body is muscle and well proportioned. Strong punches too!
