    If you were to see a poll of the best 50 fights of all time what percentage of the list would be heavyweight fights? ..my guess is it wouldn't be more than 10%. wars at heavyweight are very rare.

    50 greatest fights of all time I'd say 90% would be heavyweight

    The term p4p was coined to give some shine to little dwarf bums who nobody gave a **** about lol

    So basically every great fight pre p4p was all heavyweight fights

    Yeah James5000 that's your opinion but boxing historian's and chroniclers opinions hold more weight tbh.

    Its true a snake promoter used it lol, was a clever promotional tactic.

    Think Sugar Ray Robinson was the fighter.

    It never really caught on until Americans turned to crap in the heavyweight division circa Lennox Lewis 90s/00s.

    Americans are by far the greatest promoters in the game and they managed to convince the public to care. Helped that Americans never had a decent heavyweight to look upto

    Does anyone think Floyd would be a someone if he came around when Louis/Marciano/Ali/Tyson/Holyfield were peaking?

    The Idea that if Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis started scrapping in a bar near you, your reaction wouldn't be to laugh, come on

    If I didn't know they were boxers and assumed they were just random midgets I would.

    I know a few guys who look like they’d be blown over by a strong wind but f**k me they can rumble. Size matters, not to the extent that some think though. Of course in the pro business it’s a different ball game.

    A good big one usually splats a good small one in most bars, however, the tools used these days results in totally different outcomes.

    Nobody can spit out a bullet or take being penetrated by a 12 inch blade or worse.
