Re: Why Are The US Heavweights So Poor Now?
I think it's really simple to be honest. A poor amateur system. The decline in US amateur boxing coincided with the US not producing champions in the pros. It's not just the heavyweights either, there's not much coming through for the US in any weight division. Ward, Broner and Russell jr. have hidden that a bit but I feel like they are the last stand and in general the overall decline of US boxing is well underway. When Berto manages to become a hyped up fighter you know something is wrong.
