Boxing fans have been forced to watch the unfortunate demise of the sport, as mixed martial arts is taking over the fighting landscape. Still, when it comes to boxing, all it takes is one great fight to bring the public back. Unfortunately, boxing has experienced a shortage of those fights for years.

The heavyweight division, by far fighting's biggest draw, is dominated by slow giants with, excusing the Klitschko brother, limited skill. Not since Mike Tyson two decades ago has there been an undisputed heavyweight champion, and boxing has suffered from it.

Unless Tyson attempts a comeback (hey, he is the same age as George Foreman when he regained the belt and in much better shape since we last saw him in the ring), the draw is unlikely to come from the heavyweight division.
