I was a huge fan of Boxing, especially HW boxing up until around the time that the Klitschko brothers appeared on the scene. HW boxing was already in a bit of a slump when they popped up and i think they killed it, mostly because they were 2 very bland characters, the spent most of their career fighting in Europe (namely Germany), cherry picking most of their fights, they were terrible at promoting their fights, especially outside of Europe and their boring style of fight made things worse. I know the lower divisions were slightly better, but i was never a massive fan of light weight's.
Things started to change when Tyson Fury won the fight against Waldimir. Now the division is was more interesting with Joshua, Ruiz, Fury, Wilder. The Joshua vs Waldimir, Fury vs Wilder, Wilder vs Ortiz, Joshua v Ruiz are probably the best HW fights i have seen in the past 15-20 years. Obviously the HW division is nowhere near what it used to be in the 90s, 80s or 70s, but at least there is some hope now. I even heard that a couple of youtubers earned 150m fighting each other and we also have the bare naked boxing becoming more popular as well, so it seems boxing in general has had a revival.
What do you think?
