Default Re: how effective would the lighter heavyweights be today?

No, I'm not saying it doesn't matter at all, the size differences, sometimes very big ones, but there is way too much made of it. Styles and skill levels mean more at these weights than anything else, at the highest level.
If Vitali Klitschko were 6'2", 215 lbs, theres no way he'd be around still kicking ass at age 41.
