As for what the experts say, they may have their own reasons and biases. Regardless, I don't blindly follow what anyone else says. I have my own eyes and can form my own opinion. Watch Marciano vs ****ell, for example, and tell me how that's better than, let's say, Haye vs Chisora.
Training is NOT the same as fighting. There is a big, big difference.
