Default Who IS the Next Great Black Hope in the Heavyweight division

With all the Champs being White Russians, Which Black Heavy will have the best chance to win a title, Sam Peter of Africa, Eddie Chambers, TOS, Tony Thompson or someone else....

There is no need for a "black hope", no need. Especially after Peter destroys Oleg in the ring.

I do like Eddie Chambers, i haven't been impressed by Malik too much and Franklin Lawrence is not as good as his record suggests.

I hoping that Peter rips Oleg a new one, and if that happens then you've got your black hope right there.

Sam Peter is the next Black Heavyweight Champ.

Chambers isn't going to be able to beat the bigger HW's.

McCline doesn't stand a chance. Byrd is too small - something like Chambers.

Rahman is washed up. On and on......

Peter has the best chance.

Black hope? Yeah, I remember the days of celebration and people dancing in the streets when Briggs bested Lyakhovich for the WBOgus title and weakened the Eastern European grip on the HW titles, and the shock, humiliation and despair which sparked race riots all over the country when Shannon the Cannon dropped the title to Ibragimov.

Seriously, whether the thread starter is being facetious or not with his usage of that term, I'm pretty sure that black people are going to have to start giving a shit about boxing again en masse for there to be a "Black hope."

Why do you need a black hope..or white hope for that matter? Aren't we past the whole race thing yet? How about hope for compelling match ups that make us give a damn? People that crave a white or black hope are simply biased or racist.

Yeah it's 2007...there is no need for a "hope" for what? I think that type of thinking died over 20 years ago...In fact I dont think people even give a shit about boxing anymore...

The best p4p is Black..Mayweather..(as were MOST ATG's) I don't see any Eurotrash threatening him..Let's see how they deal with Ricketty Hatton getting slice-up..the Britis might riot like the Hagler fight in Britain..

The heavy division is the WEAKEST in all of boxing..that's why it's infested with Eurobums

Where are they in the more COMPETITIVE divisions??

NONE of that Eurotrash is HOF material..it's a joke to compare them to the ATG's

You know what Cletus??

You need a trip to the Boxing Hall of Fame...FAST

I bet you're not even european..you're home-grown TRAILER TRASH living vicarioulsy throw Eurotrash Heavyweights..

WHERE ARE AMERICAN WHITE HOPES???

There GONE..that's why you have to cheer for foreigners that would rather spit in your face than shake your hand
I think you spectacularly missed the point of the guys post.

As for the 'Eurotrash' in the heavy division, remind where the last genuine heavyweight champ was from, please?
