    The strongest weight division ever involving eight boxers within 10 pounds of each other.

    Example: Manny Pacquiao, Aaron Pryor, Henry Armstrong, etc.

    Instead of ten pounds, let's just collapse the junior and super divisions into the original 8 (IE: SMW and LHW put together, cw and hw together, sw, JFLW and flw together Etc...)

    Not an all timer list but a fun to watch tournament...I've only got 7 listed, left Hagler off because he'd walk through everyone's punches and ruin the fun. Can't think of an 8th slot right now, maybe force Bob Foster to drain himself with today's methods or throw a David Lemeiux or Edison Miranda kinda guy in there...

    Ring did a WW, MW and LW version (round robin) with modern fighters (they cut out older guys like Canzoneri, for example). I'm listing their results from most wins to least wins.

    WW: SRR, SRL, Hearns, Duran, Floyd, Griffith, Pryor, Pac
    LW: Duran, Whitaker, Floyd, Chavez, Shane, Carlos Ortiz, Pac, JMM
    MW: SRR, Hagler, RJJ, Monzon, Lamotta, Golovkin, B-Hops, Toney, Benvenuti


    If I had to make a tournament, it would be a FlW/JFlW/SW tournament. Would have to think over who

    I would pick Cruiserweights under 200 lbs.

    Rocky Marciao
    Jack Dempsey
    Evander Holyfield
    Gene Tunney
    Roy Jones Jr. (the one who beat John Ruiz)
    Joe Louis (majority of his fights were under 200 lbs.)
    Jerry Quarry
    Michael Spinks


    and no, there is not room for David Haye
