When I talked to Al Bernstein , a couple of weeks ago, he mentioned that he would like to see various weight division reduced to the original eight or maybe 10. Rusty Rubin of the Ringsports.com had told me the same thing. I am going to take a dissenting point of view. I like the various weight divisions seen today.

My argument is centered on one point, that the average athlete is today naturally bigger and stronger when compared to a century ago. The old weight divisions were set in a different era. The real problem is determining what is a true middleweight today versus yesterday? Is the Cruiserweight division more of a reflection of what a light heavyweight would be today as oppose to a century ago?

No you can't haev too many weight divisions, because if you have too few, the discrepencies between them is too large and the small guy gets his a$$ kicked.
