Default top 5 heavyweights in 3 years

who do you think will make up the top 5 heavyweights in 3 years time when both klitschkos have retired?

You can count on that @37... That's over six years past his original retirement date.


It's hard to put in a top 5, because I expect most guys that already broke through now are on the slide or maybe even shot at that point.

Helenius, Boytsov and Jennings are young enough to have a shot at the top 5 by then.

David Price
Kubrat Pulev
Robert Helenius
Deontay Wilder (if it turns out he has a good defense at the elite level. We shall see...)


Slot #5 filled by one of the following:

Jennings - If he continues to gain strength & accuracy, as he has been doing.

Boytsov - If his stiffness doesn't make him a sitting duck for someone fast like Jennings.

Larsen (at the end of his career) - If insane punching power with average skills proves enough. (it might.)

Bogdan Dinu - If some promoter gives him the opportunities, and if he actually wants to go for it. This guy could own the division.

Price, Pulev, Povetkin, Haye. Also, Arreola can be a belt holder.

I could see Malik Scott inching his way to the top 3 if the division is in a really bad state.

Mitchell is an entertaining circus act. Destined to fall off the high wire when they turn up the spotlights.

No, Scott is still doing 8 rounders and he can't crack an egg.
He's 31 now, I don't think he's getting much better.

I think if the division is getting that bad we will see a cruiser trying to get a belt before Scott.(Not just a blown up cruiser but a real sub200 guy)

Wladimir will dominate the division for more than 3 years I reckon.

I hope Seth Mitchell can take over the division, because he's at the very least very entertaining.
