Default Re: Has the Heavyweight Division ever been this Good?

Outside the USA, the HW division is deeper and has more talent than ever before.

In the USA however, there are surprisingly few decent heavyweights and HW prospects.

The promoters are generally doing a poor job. There are dozens of interesting HW matchups that COULD be made but are not. Decent HWs like Pala, Boytsov, Glazkov and others are going through long periods of inactivity and when they finally do fight, it's often with a meaningless opponent.

If you look through the HW rankings, you'll notice most of the ranked contenders have never fought another currently ranked contender. The promoters need to SMARTEN UP and start making more meaningful machups.
