No I watch everything. I'm more into the divisions of 140+ but that has nothing to do with my size and it's not like I wouldn't watch featherweights fight

Light Flyweight to SuperMiddleweight is where its at for me.


The smaller weights usually means more exciting, faster paced, more display of skills shown in the fights.

Not necessarily, but that's probably because I'm a heavyweight

My favourites weight classes over the past 5 or so years have been 140-154 because they had the best fighters during that period. I weigh about 67kg

I'm 250lbs now, boxed at 225-230lbs. I watch all divisions from 130 to heavy.

Natural lightweight bulked to 160ish, most of my favorite fighters of all time fought within that range but I watch from the bottom up to SMW for the most part these days.

Yes, but since butterbean doesn't get much coverage it's kinda hard...

Yes, I only watch heavy weight/cruiser bouts. It does not entertain me much watching midgets who I could kill with one punch slapping each other.

Walk around at about 185, but my favorite classes to watch are easily lightweight welterweight and super middle in that order. Ill watch all the weight classes, but you dont see too many of the heavier guys that can do the things that Broner Mayweather Pac or Donaire can do.

Nope, weight is irrelevant to me. Entertainment is what it's about.

No, the lower weight classes provide better, more competitive, more highly skilled bouts.
