    Anyone feel the future of the sport is the HW division?

    It should start to see some nice growth and real numbers.

    If they keep making fights like fury wilder and they end up being as exciting, then yeah a lot of casuals will get back to boxing

    My favorite division has been welterweight since I was a young boy. I am partial to the fighters that come out of there.

    However, the HW division is definitely a big talk. I think HW division, and WW division will be the rage in 2019.

    Just needed an American heavy with a reasonable claim to #1.

    To a lot of people I know Holyfield and Tyson were the last great boxers, then there were twenty years of garbage heavies.

    I agree, the talent pool has always been at the lighter weights, but the casuals pay more attention to big heavyweight characters
