Strongest men in the world - white. Just look at any power lifting competitions & weight lifting at the Olympics (highest weigh divisions). Also look at wrestling at the Olympics, whites dominate the higher weight divisions, and a few other divisions has white gold medal winners.
But it's already been proven that without slavery which strengthened the genetics of blacks in the Americas, black athletes from the Americas wouldn't be successful in sports today. They'd be as successful as the blacks from Africa... meaning, they wouldn't be successful at all. There are no great black athletes from Africa, apart from a few long-distance runners from the Great Rift Valley. Blacks from the Americas descend from West Africa. Do we see great black athletes coming from West Africa? Nope. None.
Without slavery, black folk wouldn't be able to talk about black success in sports. Blacks from the Americas are very different to blacks from Africa. That is due to slavery, which strengthened black folks' genetics.
It's wonderful we're able to have this discussion, though. We must show our gratitude to the white men who invented the PC, internet & world wide web - Konrad Zuse, Douglas Engelbart, Alan Turing, Howard H. Aiken, J. Presper Eckert, John Mauchly, Maurice Wilkes, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Christopher Strachey, J. C. R. Licklider, Gordon Moore, Alan Shugart, Robert Noyce, Jack Kilby, Paul Allen, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Christopher Latham Sholes, Chester Carlson, Allen B. DuMont, Philip Don Estridge, Ivan Sutherland, Marcian Hoff, Henry Edward Roberts, Chuck Peddle, Vint Cerf, Kees Immink, Grace Hopper, John Atanasoff, Ada Lovelace, Alan Cooper, Dave Raggett, Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie etc etc - because otherwise, we wouldn't have these wonderful inventions.:-)
Man dude can't you just make a response without writing damn essays?

You wrote no great boxers from Africa, well maybe not now, but have you ever heard of Azumah Nelson of Ghana, or Dick Tiger of Nigeria, respectively the first was world champion in the featherweight and jr. lightweight division, from the 80's to the 90's. Dick Tiger in the 1960's held first the Middleweight title, and then the light heavyweight title. I think the scarcity that we have now of African fighters making a name for themselves is just lack of organization, and structure to bring out talent that might be available from Africa. Second, the soccer from what it was in 98 and 2002 seems to have gone down in Africa, lot of stupid infighting from those countries regarding bonuses. It will however be interesting how well they do in Brazil in 2014 though.
