But I think we need LESS divisions, not more. Go back to the eight traditional weight divisions - fly (112), bantam(118 ), feather(126), light(135), welter(147), middle(160), light-heavy(175) and heavy (open to all).
I agree. We need less divisons. Why not go to the 11 weight classes in the amateur divisons?




Men's Weight Divisions
  • Light Flyweight 48kg =105.6
  • Flyweight 51kg = 112.2
  • Bantamweight 54kg = 118.8
  • Featherweight 57kg = 125.4
  • Lightweight 60kg = 132
  • Light Welterweight 64kg = 140.8
  • Welterweight 69 kg = 151.8
  • Middleweight 75 kg = 165
  • Light Heavyweight 81 kg = 178.2
  • Heavyweight ( call it crusier weight ) 91 kg = 200
  • Super Heavyweight 91 kg +201+

LOL....I don't see a difference between 217 and 220 for Tyson. What does three or four pounds mean? You can't even see a difference of three or four pounds. But Tyson was a big heavyweight if you really look at his stats. I mean, Tyson weighed about the same as George Foreman did when he won the title from Frazier - 217 - but Tyson is about 4"-5" inches shorter than George. And Tyson didnt have hardly any fat on him, either. Tyson at 220 looked a lot better than Joe Frazier did at the same weight!
