Anything smaller than the next door 7 year old girl - in other words, anything smaller than Welterweight.

Nah, ok - there are exceptions (Hamed, Bredahl and possibly Pac (havent seen him yet)).

Any weight where the fighters are not putting out a good show. Seems to be the heavies but good matches are there to be made at all divisions.

Super Middleweight is a f*cking hot division right now... just like the Welterweight & the Super Featherweight. Sorry if my answer is the opposite of the topic question

For the last 10 years , the fight of the year(according to the Ring) has been fought under the Welterweight limit .

1997-S.Feather
1998-Lightweight
1999-Bantamweight
2000-Super Bantamweight
2001-Light-Welterweight
2002-Light-Welterweight
2003-Light-Welterweight
2004-Super-Featherweight
2005-Lightweight
2006-Super-Bantamweight

Note that some fights were fought a pound or two over the limit they are down as , such as Gatti v Ward I and III which were fights of the year because 142 is more like Light-Welterweight even if it's technically Welterweight .

The small weight classes. I dont care for watching two guys about the size of a 10 year old swinging on each other.

Maybe I'm tired, but what's at JMW that should excite me?

Surprised everyone says CW. Ive been interested as hell in that division since our man Ding began knocking people the **** out.



If I had to pick one right now, Id go with SMW. I love Calzaghe, but he hasnt fought anyone worth a shit since Lacy (and hindsight, how worth a shit was he in the first place). Kessler is good, but unproven. Plus, no big fights on the immediate horizon.

Though, if you asked me a few weeks AFTER the Winky - Hop fight, I may have a different answer.
