Default Top Five divisions in boxing!

Curious to hear your thoughts and what you'd consider the best five divisions in boxing at this time.

Please explain your choices.

For those whose lists omitted cruiserweight, where would you rank that?

1. Welterweight : some great fight with Cotto, Mosley, PBF, Williams, Margarito...
2. Super Featherweight : Pacman, Marquez, Barrera, Soto, Guzman we are all waiting them to fight.
3. Super Middleweight : Kessler, Calzaghe, Mundine plus the long awaited unification fight.

Cruiserweight would be number 4 for me. Mormeck, Bell, Cunningham, Haye are all very good fighters and some good fights like Mormeck Haye are already scheduled.

I think those rankings are pretty much dead on, good list.

168 will also benefit in the near future as the big MW's who can't keep making weight forever will go there- like Taylor, Miranda, and Pavlik.

Default Re: Top Five divisions in boxing!

1. SMW (With the upcoming unification bout in between Calzaghe and Kessler and with rising prospects such as Bute, Froch, etc.)
2. WW (Floyd Mayweather, Paul Williams, Cotto, Cintron, you name 'em)
3. CW (I'd say that Ding is largely responsible for the attention I'm now giving to this weight class...)
4. SFW (Pacquiao, MAB, Marquez, Guzman, etc.)
5. LHW (Can't think of another one and I really want to see if Diaconu will get to face Dawson...)

I agree. 168 has some big things on the horizon.

Is this a joke? Are you still including PBF there? It's DLH and a whole lotta dreck in that weight class right now.

As for me:

1) Welter
2) Super Feather
3) Super Bantam
4) Cruiser
5) Super Middle

Welterweight is definitely deeper than Super Middleweight. How can people even argue this?

147 is the best weight class no doubt. Even the thought of the potential matchups has me excited.
