Seriously, no... Although I think the HW's get too much stick around here.


I am a tall guy myself, but I prefer to watch the fights where the greatest display of skill and boxing arsenal is possible

Heavyweights dont really offer that for me, the large majority of the crop seem to lack conditioning to one degree or another - their size means they rarely throw punches in great volume, or with great speed, and generally fight at a much less intense pace than at lower weights, and can generally get by on their size more than you can in any other weight

I think bamtamweight to Super-middle are the most interesting weights for me personally, fighters are of a size that they have a good enough mix of speed, agility, conditioning and output, with a good amount of power and are all 'normal' sized people (well from LWW anyway) - I know most people can find it odd watching strawweights
