And you may not get the same 10 middleweights everytime, but the total number of fighters overall will not be 1000 or even 100. The same names will keep being cited.
Fair points... but ultimately your opinion, which was my point.
Opinions on a hypothesis that is unlikely to ever happen (eg: If Jimmy Wilde fought Lennox Lewis at the same weight; Wilde would win) cannot be proven right or wrong.
