    HW division in the early to mid 80's was poor but at the same time in boxing we had the Fab 4 as well as the likes of Aaron Pryor and Alexis Arguello

    Apart from the fact that they are objectively better than all the others (ie. they would beat them), you might have some sort of point.

    But I doubt it.

    Not true if you truly love the sport. Its the most glamorous division. But not close to being the most exciting.

    Everyone knows the real debate is 2002 win streak Zuri Lawrence vs 1987 Mike Williams coming off his loss to Witherspoon. Let's get to the bottom of this hypothetical heavyweight barrel!

    Good quality heavyweights from the past, not gigantic ones that are on a modern special nutritional diet,(Steroids)

    Honestly?
    Why start a thread that gets 3 replies and sinks faster than the Titanic.
    Easier to start a Marciano thread that goes on for 15 pages.
