Povetkin- Lose
Fury- Lose, but Fury would have to fight the perfect fight, no showboating or brawling.
Glazkov- Lose
Chisora- Close fight, but I think Delboys youth and workrate would carry him through on this one.
Adamek - Another close one, Adameks workrate and chin could give Thompson problems in this one, but I feel that Thompsons awkwardness and size would pose just as many problems for Adamek, 55-45 Thompson. Very hard one to pick.
Reading this list and knowing the skills of all of the above fighters, all I can say is; What a sad and sorry state the HW division is in.
Can't waste my time being bothered to watch this pitiful group of bums.

I think he's done well for himself lately but he would still be the underdog in fights with the guys on that list. Wilder, Fury, Jennings by TKO.

Thompson is this era's Ron Lyle. Overachiever who is a tough night's work for any heavyweight who doesn't come in focused and ready. His nickname should be "truth serum" because he'll get to the bottom of his opponent's hype quickly.

After beating Solis, Price, and competing with Pulev, coming from a partial training camp, how would he fare against:

Arreola
Wilder
Jennings
Povetkin
Fury
Glazkov
Chisora
Adamek
He loses to most on the list because he has slowed down enormously, but at his prime he'd beat anyone but Povetkin maybe. Today, he could get past Arreola I think. Adamek outpoints him without landing a flush shot all night probably.

With the retirement of Haye & Vitali the top 5 IMO is thus:

-Wlad
-Pulev
-Povetkin
-Stiverne
-Arreola

IMO, TT beats Adamek, loses to Povetkin, all the other matchups are even and could go either way, can't really decide them.
