Default Heavyweights Are Funny

But not really very good at the moment, are they?

Why is it a surprise to many that Brewster got destroyed. It was an exact replica of the first fight except Wlad falling over.

What more do you want?

I'm not surprised at all. Wlad is a decent fighter and Brewster was on the slide.

Two heavyweights who are in shape and really good boers to put on a show of skill, athleticism, power, heart and stamina would be nice.

Kind of like you get occasionally in all the other divisions.

I don't object to a shallow top ten, though it's inconvenient. But guys seem to have stamina issues, be out of shape, quit, all sorts of weird shit.

One of them is just really big with OK skill. He'd of got murdered in most other eras, in this one he's only lost one and has been champ.

Meanwhile, other divisions thrive.

Here's the thing...Boxing's history could've been dramatically changed during the Henry Cooper vs Ali fight...
Cooper owned Ali in that fight...
but fortunately for him , His corner was a fast thinker...and saved his ass by gaining some time and gave Ali the time to recuperate...

If Henry Cooper was able to pull that shit...

just imagine what most of these eastern euros would've done..especially a big and skilled ones too...

there was no russian invasions back then.. If you're not being biased about it.
You can't even call some of boxing's legends "best of the world" since 99% of their competition came from the united states...

Hell even Lennox's record is slightly more international...(even though he only had to fight 2 or 3 eastern euros in his entire pro career)..

It's all relative really..
