Youre kidding right? Once in a lifetime phenomenon in
Heavyweights would be Ali or Tyson. I think the
phenomenon is the lack of American talent. Maybe
HW boxing isnt as popular especially with younger
people who would consider boxing. We all saw the
US olympic heavyweight debacle, although the superheavy
american won his pro debut. However he was a football
player, perhaps other sports seem more lucrative and
attractive. Perhaps trainers focus more on lower weights
because those divisions are stacked. Back in 2009 I felt
Arreola was rushed into a title shot, but I thought he had
a chance against Vitali. But after that loss Arreola didn't
improve his technique and is basically a club fighter.
Seth Mitchell is a hype job. Interesting study.
Less gyms? Haha I dont know. I mean the 90s
were so stacked with American talent, Bowe
Holyfield, Foreman, Tyson, Morrison, mercer.
