Default Boxing sucks right about now..Tons of loaded divisions

Nobody is fighting anyone.

Name 5 weight classes off the top of your head where the top talent ain't fighting each other..

Heavyweight is producing some good fights.

Super 6 has produced some good fights in SMW.

Showtime Bantamweight Tourney produced some good fights.

Weightclasses from 130-147 have been very good over the past few years.

Had a dream about Pac Floyd a few hours ago, Floyd was getting battered and eventually got dq'd for a lunging headbutt.

I also had a dream that Wlad was dq'd before the Haye fight, so it doesn't look good for Pacman.

Ehh.. Super 6 is a pioneer! in the future, years 2010,2011 will be remembered as the pioneer of new ways to arrange boxing fights. Tournements! Maybe even worldcups? Now that would be cool! Get rid of all the belts and make 1 tournement! 1 worldcup where the winner can call him self worldchamp!

There have been some great fights, and there will be some more.. But the point is there are so many more that could happen but don't because of ducking, politics, money etc..

Like Dobyzhee says, the divisions are stacked..

I'm just looking forward to seeing Cotto - Margarito, and Donaire against any body..

I like Cotto-Margarito II, but they are not at the top of their division. Still one helluva fight and I don't care that they aren't.

I had in mind, 126...Gamboa/Lopez

I know it takes time to build up a fight but some should be f'n made and put on undercards of major fights. like gamboa/lopez underneath pac/marquez.

147 is a **** division outside pac/mayweather jr.. years ago it was stacked but everyone's been cleaned out by those two.

155...you could put a super 6 in that weight class

168 is about wrapped up. that one is going to be decided in November

lord forbid a dawson/Hopkins fight.

heavyweight..what talent?

Cotto is my favourite fighter, i'll watch him against any body as long as he isn't getting destroyed.. Can't wait for margarito fight, just hope Cotto can get some revenge.

Yes, Lopez may have lost but i still like him and want to see him against Gamboa..

I don't even give a **** about the Heavyweight division..
