Floyd Mayweather Vs Anthony Joshua by oluwadare26(m): 6:34am On Aug 27, 2017
With the way Floyd Mayweather's name, fame and wealth is getting lots of attention & respect in the world of boxing for the past 5 years we all novice (i.e those people that has little idea about boxing) is thinking boxing is all about Floyd Mayweather.

To the experience boxing viewers, Pls do you think a fight can occur between Anthony Joshua and Mayweather? If not, why?


If eventually it occurred, who would be the favorite among the two?



If AJ is superior why is Mayweather richer and more famous?


Thanks

Because he's middleweight and AJ is heavy weight, they obviously don't belong in the same weight category

Boxing is all about weight, categorised into
Light weight.
Featherweight
Middleweight
Cruiserweight
Light heavyweight
Super heavyweight.

Floyed in middleweight, Anthony is superheavyweight.

In all combat sports, weight is used in categorising people into these category and you have to fight in the category you belong. It is forbidden to go and fight in another category (as it will be a misfit) , reason why u see the weighing up before match. To be sure and show to the world their weight class before going into the ring.

Heavyweight used to be the in thing in boxing and every attention was there, but with the advent of the klitscko brothers, and wladimir, who was defeating everybody in the category, left nothing to the imagination of fans (imagine someone holding all belt in heavyweight division for over 10 years) it lost every ingredient of competitiveness as is seen in combat spots, so with that, attrition crept in and men became weary of the heavyweight category, and had to divert attention to the lower weight division. That was how middleweight and welterweight became the eyes and the gem of the world in boxing.
ND of course, started racking in more money and cash. And the heavyweight category went into the gutters and became unattractive.

Anyway with the advent of younger boxers now, and klitscko is out of the way, the heavyweight category will soon regain it's lost glory and become the pearl of the world once again.
And start making their millions.


I hope this help.
Felt I needed to trace back history for you so u understand your question.

Remain blessed.
