Default The Hottest Division In Boxing Right Now!

The one division people need to watch on from now on!

The 140 Pound Light Welterweight Division.

The talent in this division is immense. Just check out some of the 140 pound contenders:

Timothy Bradley - Great fighter
Devon Alexander - Great fighter
Amir Khan - Great fighter
Juan Urango - Good fighter
Juan Manuel Marquez - Great fighter, but not his division to rule
Edwin Valero - ehh? I don't care about him anymore. He just ruined himself.
Paulie Malignaggi - Good fighter
Victor Ortiz - Good fighter
Nate Campbell - Good fighter
Kendall Holt - Good fighter
Lamont Peterson - Good fighter
Ricky Hatton - Too fat now, sorry.
Juan Diaz - Lost to Malignaggi recently. Not his Division to be honest.
Marcos Maidana - Agressive guy. Raw power.
Victor Cayo - Recent loss to Maidana but did outbox him for a few rounds well.
Andreas Kotelnik - Loss to Khan. Don't have much hopes for him against top 3.

Pretty much every name in this list is recognisable and I honestly can't wait for some of the matchups.

Matchups coming up:

Amir Khan Vs Paulie Malignaggi
Victor Ortiz Vs Nate Campbell
Bradley Vs Maidana - Not set in stone but reports of it being worked on.
Devon Alexander Vs Zab Judah - Could happen next

One to watch out for!

Bantamweightor Featherweight.

LWW is overrated to the hilt. Many good fighters but not enough elite fighters.

I probably wouldn't even describe Bradley or Alexander as 'great'. One more win for each against a very good opponent and then maybe its ******ted.

Exactly why I come on this forum. The level of debate is nothing short of astounding.

And he has his and he questioned yours. So either answer seriously or don't post a thread. It's that easy.

140 is quite good right now, but just a short time ago we were all talking about 147 being the hottest division. Things are always in flux.

Yeah! That's some hot stuff. But they're just 3 fights between them 3 fighters to be honest. So it won't last long.

I'm young but surely not as young as you. ESB we need an age limit. No under 10s!
