The unpredictable
Fights are not widely aired over here anymore. I just checked Web yesterday to find out most heavyweight champions these days are eastern-european with more than 6'7"+ height. What happened to american school who dominated heavyweight tier for decades?


Mushroom at large
The same thing that happened to americans in every sport they compete internationally in. Once the playing field was leveled with respect to money and training .... they were mediocre at best.

My goodness, but that's an interesting perspective. Got an inferiority complex, much?

A level playing field is Americans using their own money while the rest are sponsored by the state? Seems a bit wobbly to me.
