    Boxing's primary attraction, the heavyweight division, has been built on the back of American success, with all-time greats Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson paving the way for today's giants.  The 70s represented a historically crucial and intensely competitive period in boxing, with US heavyweights Ali, Joe Frazier and George Foreman all squaring off, and titles 'The Rumble in the Jungle' and 'The Thrilla in Manila' still eminent to this day.  The 80s also hold a special place in history, largely due to the rise of Larry Holmes, the destructive emergence of Tyson, and, of course, that epic middleweight encounter between Marvin Hagler and Thomas Hearns. It also represented the end of the two-belt era, with the IBF installed alongside the existing WBC and WBA governing bodies.  Americans Muhammad Ali (left) and Mike Tyson (right) were pivotal in making heavyweight boxing the worldwide spectacle it is today  Deontay Wilder became America's first heavyweight champion in nine years back in 2015 A notable shift came in the 90s.

    BOXING often throws up plenty of disagreement and conflict, especially between some of the sport's biggest stars on fight week.
