I am half serious but I am very curious.
What if all fights were Catchweights. That's right. Catchweights contracted between two game fighters and no compulsion to fight in any division.
As it is, we have so many calibrated weight classes and even more sanctioning bodies charging fees for progressively more meaningless titles than ever before. On top of that we have big guys draining themselves to squeeze themselves into small men's divisions (Ortiz, Chavez, Rios), little guys with balls (Gamboa, JMM, Pacquiao) fighting bigger guys ...and everyone again trying to pretend they are welterweights all of a sudden because that is where the money is today.
So what if for the sake of arguement we did away with with divisions and just made fights?
The early response to Gamboa Rios is very positive and Gamboa has never fought at 130 let alone 135. Rios on the other hand has'nt made 135 in almost a year. Ortiz (and Margarito) fight at middleweight and higher on fight night. Chavez fights at Cruiserweight. And Sergio Martinez, the middleweight champion of the world, is so desperate for a big name he would shrink himself to 150 to fight the top welters.
Personally, I am excited to see Gamboa try his hand against Rios. And I don't give a hoot what belt if any are fighting for. I would love to see Mayweather take on Martinez around 154/155...as I more than Floyd apparently believe he would win.
You get my drift. Many a fantasy and/or dream fight could be made.
If Catchweights were the norm, who would you like to see meet whom?
