    Heavyweights are getting bigger maybe not better.

    Ali and the other old time greats would struggle with the size of the better coordinating big heavyweights of early 2000's.

    Boxers are bigger in the heavyweight division these days and you have people like Bellew talking about campaigning and having ambitions of winning world titles but then openly admitting that they want nothing at all to do with the big heavies.

    The problem is that the talent pool is so poor that splitting it up further would leave you with 2 absolutely shite divisions instead of one poor division.

    It aint going to happen

    That is true the depth of skill and talent in the division is poor. Which is why Bellew can try and contend to fight in the division.

    Well when they create the super heavyweight division there will obviously be cruiserweights who are just that little bit to small to move up to heavyweight which is when the super cruiserweight division comes in.

    He is probably rich enough to create his own division and maybe that will be where David Haye moves next.

    There should be less divisions not more! It thins out the talent and enables fighters to avoid tough fights. There should be around 12 weight classes not the 17 we currently have at the moment.

    Does fury's division involve being super morbidly obese and taking drugs ?

    Seems this comes up every few years and disappears, rightfully so. Quality over quantity and we don't need another division for sure. Great way for wbc to make more coin though . Anyone remember when Bobby Czyz won the inaugural super cruiserweight title? Not so much and that division worked out greeeat. Max Kellerman was the first guy I recall harping on need for 'super' heavyweight division. About the time guys like Grant, McCline and Lance Whitaker were coming up .

    I think everything below featherweight should be scrapped and I wouldn’t mind if they scrapped all the light/junior/super divisions between the real weight classes.

    You are entitled to your opinion​. No matter how ridiculous and stupid it is. I am surprised that you are a boxing forum with that particular opinion. Do you know how many great fighters and fights have occurred below the featherweight division?

    Okay I’d keep bantamweight but scrap everything below that. I find flyweight and minimumweight so uninteresting (seriously what grown man weighs 105lbs) I think Boxing could do with a shake up (it won’t happen) but less divisions and less belts would improve the sport immensely and nobody can deny that. It’s no secret that the best fighters usually fight from 140-154 so imagine if we only had 147! All that talent would be in one place.
