You can say that they created their own lineage.

Dariusz Michalczewski - Julio Cesar Gonzalez - Zsolt Erdei - Denis Grachev - Edwin Rodriguez

But Erdei announced his retirement and gave up his belts. The Lineage was broken but there was already another one.

While Darusz was racking on wins during his WBO crusade, Jones Jr was recognized as the true champ at LHW. He was the p4p king.

Jones - Tarver - Johnson - Hopkins - Calzaghe

Calzaghe retired and ended that lineage.

So in 2010 a new lineage was started. Pascal - Hopkins - Dawson - Stevenson.

Personally I don't think Hopkins makes it past round 5. Either that or he fakes a low blow or something and finds a way to puss out.

Dawson died as the lhw champion when he got beat up by Ward in a fight fought well within the 175lbs limit. as far as i'm concerned there is absolutely no case for Stevenson and not necessarily for Bhop/Kovalev winner either at this point.

A week before the big fight. Any changes of heart, or new insights?

It's all very well saying that Adonis is the lineal champion until he is beaten, but when he is clearly minded to avoiding the best boxers in his division, it's difficult to take that too seriously.

Stevenson would be the divisional champion but very few would consider him the best. Just like Cotto at MW

Actually is it Zsolt Erdei (but I read, he has announced his retirement).

Well, I'm not in to this "he holds the lineal belt soo... He must be the #1 right" talk, Cotto clearly isn't 160 champ so that debunks that myth.

The most likely outcome for me is Kovalev TKO/DQ, if that was to happen then Stevenson is still the champ, boxing fans have a short memory, Stevenson KO'd Dawson in the first round, Dawson is arguably 2-0 against Hopkins if you count EVT wins, if he fought him in 2 months time it would still be Dawson UD12. Dawson would win 49 times out of 50, Hopkins could probably take a SD against a genuinely one handed Dawson, but that's it.

H2H I honestly don't know who id pick between Adonis and Kovalev, but Adonis undoubtably has the better resume even if Kovalev goes out and destroys a 49 year old Hopkins.

Dawson >>> Hopkins

Fonfara > Campillo

Bellew > Clev (wait till rematch )

Cloud > Sillakh

ASSUMING Stevenson fights Pascal and ASSUMING the winner of that fight, fights the winner of Kovalev-Hopkins, then the guy at the end would be the most definitive champion in boxing.

Completely and utterly undisputed.
