Boxing's Heavyweight Division.

Sub-nation recently did their MMA HW rankings & what i gathered from it is:


1.) There's no fighter from outside the UFC.


2.) There's only about 4 worthy title challengers & the rest make up a core of about 10 fighters including guys outside the top ten coming of loses or climbing the ladder.


Its been said that the Boxing HW division is dead & that its in its worst state in boxing history & i feel that this is true but, greatly exaggerated, here's some points into why it may seem weaker.


a.) Now MMA exists it has probably taking a good percentage of potential boxers.


b.) Mike Tyson factor, the guy was so exciting & explosive that he has left a hole in the division now he's gone.


c.) Racism in the press, now the division has been dominated by Eastern European fighters, definitely from America where they are only use to Great American champions of African/mixed race descent.
