My #2 pet peeve about boxing, after corruption, is the absurd weight division setup - the little squirts have weight div's separated by an absurd 3 or so pounds whereas a feller weighing 201 is supposed to be in the same div as a guy a head taller and 50 or 100 pounds more. A guy weighing 176 also is in the same div as 199, but then you have the stupid super middleweight div with only 7 pound borders, 168-175. Totally illogical.
