Default Re: Who IS the Next Great Black Hope in the Heavyweight division

Black hope? Yeah, I remember the days of celebration and people dancing in the streets when Briggs bested Lyakhovich for the WBOgus title and weakened the Eastern European grip on the HW titles, and the shock, humiliation and despair which sparked race riots all over the country when Shannon the Cannon dropped the title to Ibragimov.

Seriously, whether the thread starter is being facetious or not with his usage of that term, I'm pretty sure that black people are going to have to start giving a shit about boxing again en masse for there to be a "Black hope."
