Default Rank the Divisions.

It seems a good 80% of the threads on here regard the big boys. Yet, I find that division, over the course of the sport's modern history. I am curious how others rank the traditional 8 in terms of historical excellence, depth and consistency.

Here I go...

1) Middleweight
2) Welterweight
3) Lightweight
4) Bantamweight
5) Heavyweight
6) Lightheavy
7) Featherweight
Flyweight

Upon second look, I actually prefer yours to mine with the exception of Middle being number two. Lightheavy is more consistently great over the long haul than the heavies.

I don't see how you could possibly put LHW under HW. There have been far more excellent LHW's than HW's.

And yet, the top ten topics today on this board regard heavyweights. It makes me think that perhaps most in these parts don't know much beyond one of the least successful divisions in the sport.
