I love boxing, the weight class I watch the most are the heavyweights, they are the biggest and best fighters in all of boxing.
There are many people who would disagree, as the other weight classes like Welterweight and Super Welterweight are thought to have more skilled fighters. Let me explain why I think heavyweights are better boxers
The Top Heavyweight boxer would beat any other boxer from any other weight class, obviously because they are bigger and more powerful but they still win. If an open weight boxing tournament existed, so any boxer of any weight could enter then its pretty certain a heavyweight would win,
So basically what I'm saying is whoever wins a fight between fighter A and fighter B is the better fighter. Regardless of weight, reach, speed, power, chin etc.
If I said Wladimir Klitschko is a better boxer than Floyd Mayweather Jnr, the reason I think that is because Wladimir would win, then that reasoning makes sense ?
Only way Mayweather could prove he's better boxer than Klitschko is beat him in a boxing match, that wouldn't happen.
Lets face it, Wlad would knock out Mayweather, Pacquiao, Froch, Ward, Kahn, all in one night
The same would apply in MMA too,
