The HW division is deep at this time but ignored because America isnt the dominant force in it.
Pretty good point. If you look at the world amateurship from the era you can see that there was a vast pool of great fighters who couldn┤t compete as professionals in 1987. Felix Savon, Aleksandr Miroshnichenko, Roberto Balado, Teˇfilo Stevenson etc.
