It could have been a really good time in this division had the likes of Hill, Williams, Moorer and Czyz fought each other. (Czyz and Williams did fight three times, I think it was. Or maybe twice.)
Hill was the most consistent, Moorer the big puncher and Williams could do a bit of everything...underrated guy, I thought. Not flashy, but solid.

Andrew Maynard,,,,,,,

Looked like he was going to be 'the goods'.

Smartly matched, he would have won one of those Light-Heavyweight Belts.

As much as I love Hearns, if he can beat two of the champs at that stage of his career, the division must have been pretty ****.

I am ignorant of those fighters though.

Thomas Hearns, even at that point in his career, would beat the likes of a prime Bernard Hopkins, Chad Dawson, Michael Moorer (although its close)- he was a special fighter who even at the backend of his career could beat the best.
