Default Should the Light heavyweight Division be called Junior Cruiserweight

I reckon it should. the difference in weight between in light heavies and Heavie nowadays is like two full divisions. there is like nearly three stone between most heavies (at least. even more in most cases) and light heavies

thats like the difference between Super featherweight and Middleweight

No it's tradition. Remember, light heavyweight is an original weight class, cruiserweight came along a long time after.

i take back what i said. light heavies are as important to boxing history as any other weight class. it would be terrible to see it become junior junk

I'd say most probably, they might be content with 17 though.

Superheavyweight in the Amateurs has been around a long time, and eliminated the need for a "cruiserweight amateur" division. Plus the amateurs add a 2-3 pounds in a lot of divisions and minimize "jr." divisions.

Historically you can name many of the great pro Lightheavies, too much tradition...don't mess with it.

No no no no noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The light heavyweight division is a great historic division with a rich history.

It stands for Bob Fitzsimmons, Jack Dillon, Tommy Loughran, Maxie Rosenbloom, Billy Conn, Archie Moore, Michael Spinks.

You would have to be a man without a soul to change its name.

The cruiserweight division should be called the super light-heavyweight division if any chnage was to be made. As has been mentioned the light-heavyweight division started decades before the cruiserweight division.
