3 ) Ibragimov – He retired too young, but his footspeed, handspeed, and power as a combination I think were greater than those below him.

4 ) Povetkin – Can move up or down. Has beaten top ten opponents.

5 ) Chagaev – Under rated. Illines and injuries derailed his career a bit

6 ) Adamek – Too small for the Klitschko’s, but a handful for anyone else

7 ) Valuev – Big, and duruable, but only average skills

8 ) Golota – a loser in all of his big fights, but the ability was there

9 ) Maskaev – Won his share, lost his share. Poorly managed.

10 ) Zolkin – Based on being the first one to go professional

Young pros who could crack the top ten by 2020: Pulev, and Glazkov. Chakhkiev if he moves up from CW to heavy weight.

Amateur stars who could crack the top ten by 2020: Dychko ( 6’9” 22 year old amateur star with a world of potential ) Medzhidov ( Amateur star, world amateur champion, brutal puncher! ), Usyk ( speedy pound for pound type of talent )
