I understand why people enjoy the lower weights, usually faster paced higher punch out put etc.
But I'm not really interested, there are too many weight classes and they are too close together. Between 126lbs and 135lbs there are 12 world champions, that's within just 9lbs! So everyone's a world champion, or has held a belt at a different weight. Knock outs are very rare between top boxers.
I watch the fights sometimes, they just seem to be throwing hundreds of punches with very little effect on their opponent.

Don't know why you cut it off at MW.

WW has been one of the most popular, for like, forever. Well, at least over the last 30, 40 years or so(since SR Leonard.)
