Re: Heavyweight boxing champion still the baddest man on the planet or not?
The way heavyweights are getting bigger and heavier, it is only a matter of time before a superior athlete is born who has bulk, explosiveness and heavy hands. The moment when there is another boxing "boom" will come.
All of it is perception, really. As others have pointed out, at no moment in history was the heavyweight champ the best in a street fight.
