Default Is heavyweight the only weight class that matters?

i honestly dont understand why people say that. i dont even like that particular division that much. the cash cows fight at or around welterweight.

It's the one that matters least, IMO.

You have a point if you are hard core boxing fan and really appreciate the sweet science..

But over all, come on man, it still is the most precious...

Overall what, you mean as far as mainstream recognition by casual/non fans? **** 'em. I really don't give a shit.

Cruiser and heavy are the least interesting divisions, by far.

Straw through light heavy, that's where it's at.

No, the heavyweight crone is the battle between the toughest men on Earth.
When you're the heavyweight king you know there are 7 billion men under you.

The other divisions matter just as much in their own way.

Rodriguez and Joyi are at the Top of there Division......So if you wanna Compare, do it Right Wlad and Vitali > Either of those 2, and by Miles...

Fury and Arreola > Porpramook and Lopez

Compare the Top to the top and the Lower top 10(ish) to the Lower top 10....
