you could put just about any of Roy's defenses at Light Havyweight.

I liked watching him beat the hell out of Richard Hall, David Telesco, and Clinton Woods, Glen Kelley and Julio Gonzalez fights were okay, Antonio Tarver 1st fight was pretty suspenseful.

Tarver 3rd fight was terrible.

All good picks. I actually fell asleep during Hopkins/Wright.

John Ruiz-Hasim Rachman
Jameel McCline-Nikolay Valuev (knee injury in rd 3? Come on)
Plus Briggs versus anybody.

Not looking good for the heavyweight division

It seems like most heavyweight title fights this decade have stunk, or been average.

Liakhovich-Brewster was great though, and Lewis-Klitschko was entertaining.

Not a title fight, but Barrett-Beck was entertaining.

Peter Wlad was awesome too, i also liked Wlad Austin. and Lewis Klitchko was more than entertaining, it was one of the best HW fights ever IMO. too bad about the cut. the finale would have been impossibly dramatic...

Lewis-Klitschko was a wild, ugly, exciting fight, but it wouldn't rank in my top 20 HW fights ever.

Wlad-Austin was good for the humorous finish. Wlad-Peter had its moments. Too much clinching for my liking, but overall a fairly enjoyable HW fought.
