    ClintonWoods finally beats Glen Johnson at the third attempt. Kudos to Woods he came back after a battering in the ninth to win. Truth be told he is a limited fighter with a great heart. He will be destroyed by Calzaghe should they meet

    You just need to see the Jones fight to see that he really isn't world class. But he has tons of heart and is a gamer. He deserves a good payday..... [​IMG] Edited by: white is right

    Although I would love to see Calzaghe beat Johnson, and that probably won't happen now, I'm very happy for Woods.

    What is the media's excuse for white dominance at middleweight to light heavyweight? Surely these smaller, black men aren't tall enough for the NBA or large enough for the NFL.

    Wow. Excellent point, Alpha Male. Perhaps they don't have one, which is why they only talk about the heavyweight division.

    They also disregard the fact that, outside of the heavyweights, not all of the lower weight class champions that are white are from eastern Europe.

    The dominance has been for a while. Infact they were mostly Western European fighters not Eastern European/West Asians. The problem is those divisions are largely ignored unless Americans hold those belts...
