Default who cares about midget boxers under 140 lbs.

How did boxing fans get brainwashed? General sports fans are not interested in the "jockey fighters" under 140 lbs. 18 of the top twenty of all time are heavier (see below). No wonder boxing has left the mainstream. Now how many of the weight divisions are UNDER 140 lbs. There are 10!

1. Sugar Ray Robinson

3. Henry Armstrong
4. Joe Louis
5. Willie Pep

7. Benny Leonard
8. Jack Johnson
9. Jack Dempsey
10. Sam Langford
11. Joe Gans

bwa ha ha. I've seen auggie sanchez lay out middleweight professionals with body shots in sparring. Some of these little guys will beat you to death. I promise you Pac or Barrera are generally dangerous men to screw with if you aren't on the world level even if you are much bigger.

Hamed with his bare fist can probably knock out just about anybody if he sucker punches them just right.

While this overstates it a bit, I certainly prefer fighters in the 140 and up classes over those below - and I suspect this is true of most boxing fans.

Speak for yourself crazy..all of the actual best fights holding boxing down the last few years have been 135 and below...Corrales Castillo. Vasquez Marquez...both all out action fights with POWER and knockouts.. stick to posting about chins.

Other than welterweight, 122-130 is where most of the big fights/talent is at now.

You realize one of the rhings that makes boxing to a lot of fans of the sport is that you don't need to be 6ft 5in and 250 lbs to have a chance to secuded.
