    This is why most people couldn't care less about boxing and who happens to be one of a plethora of world champions.

    Back in the day the best fought the best and it resulted in legends and fights that will be remembered for many years to come, where as most of todays boxers and fights barely get a "meh" when talked about by most people.

    I'd love to see the Cobra face off against AJ. He'd get battered, but might have a puncher's chance.

    Usyk is scary. I'd try to avoid him if I were AJ.

    Doing the above (to prolong careers and increase bank balances) is why boxing (particularly the heavyweight division) is such a 'meh' sport.

    What other sport would survive where those at the top of the tree continually avoid each other, and where when a 'big' fight does take place it is more often than not either a damp squib and/or turned into even more of a farce due to a controversial decision.

    It's only a few sports that allow for such chicanery Noods. It's one of the reasons I'm not really into boxing.
