Of course, I totally disagree with your characterization of the HW division. IMO, apart from a couple of slackers, it is stacked with some really good contenders, and more and more are coming up.
Actually, our characterization of the heavies does not diverge at all. I said that one of the chief categories include "prospects., " which is your "more and more are coming up."
There are indeed "really good contenders" like Fury and Povetkin, all of which have already turned doen Kilit fight, and other good ones like Chambers, Adamek, Solis, Arreola, etc. who have already lost.
I agree that many good fighters are coming up the ladder. In ten years, we are talking another seventies or nineties.
But name me a good contender now who is ready to go. I Think Pulev, and maybe, if he can win a couple of comeback fights, Helenius.
Right now, the heavyweight division sucks.
