Re: Why Are The US Heavweights So Poor Now?
well schooled american heavyweights reared from the ground up strictly within the sport of boxing is a rarity. this is why you see old guys from the early 2000's or in some cases, the 90's, still vying for contention, or big guys who started late in the sport. LITERALLY EVERY up and coming, notable american heavyweight outside of jonathon banks started their sports careers in football or basketball, and made the transition after their campaign in their initial sport fizzled out for one reason or another.
the tradition of well schooled big guys reared in boxing from a young age iis either dying or totally dead.
