If there was half the weight classes that there is right now, pairing up the weight classes from the bottom, wouldn't it be better?

Seems there are only half the weight catagories, I thought I'd add two new belts! (which kind of defeats the object of finding out who the real champs are) the BOX=Boxrec belt and RNG= the Ring belt.

Are there too many weight classes? Should the pro's use amateur/olympic weight classes?

What are the best fights from the matchups above?

There are too many weight classes, but I don't think you want to get rid of half of them. SMW and JWW for example have been fantastic additions, and have been two of the hottest divisons in boxing for decades now. I think several of the smaller weight classes should be removed. Why are there only 4 divisions above MIDDLEweight, and 12 below? Just get rid of every 'junior' or 'super' division below lightweight.

Underlined who I think would be the winners.

Pretty decisive usually, and usually in favor of the heavier division.

This isn't accurate at all though... You include the 126 and 130 pounders, for example. In reality, there would be some 122 pounders that move up to 126 rather than down to 118 and there'd be some 130 pounders that move up to 135 rather than down to 126. Also, the Cruiserweights would never be able to cut down and make LHW. They would move up to the HW division.

I think you started from the wrong end of the divisions. It should have been...

Heavy vs Crusier
LHW vs SMW
MW vs LMW
WW vs LWW
LW vs SFW
etc etc
