Cruiserweight division seems rather out-of-date!

The best puncher in the heavyweight division is Wladimir Klitschko and it's not even close.
As far as most exciting heavyweight fighter, I disagree with Brian Minto.

For the cruiserweights, Darnell Wilson has yet to get a much deserved title shot.

Good to see Ding getting some press, good for him. But best puncher in SMW- Kessler? Surely its Lacy.

They shouldve written Championship shot instead of title shot...

I have to disagree, Naz is definately the most underrated Cruiserweight right now.

Whos ****in writing this shit for the ring?????

I agree on some of the HW statements, but what the **** is going on in their judgement of SMW???????


I mean - just the fact that they put Kessler up there as the best puncher is a ****in joke!! Kessler is no puncher ffs.....

Lacy is a puncher, Andrade is a puncher, Froch is a puncher - but Kessler?

Adamek is the best puncher at lhw????
A joke!

The Ring magazine is loosing its credibillity bad. Manfredo underrated? OMFG.

They've probably never even heard of Inkin to underate him...........

As for other things I see that are wrong(imo)

Wlad is the biggest puncher at heavy .

Bell isn't as big a puncher as Haye , Ding or Maccarinelli . Haye deserves a shot the most(which he's getting) and is also the most fun to watch for me . Braithwaithe is not underated .

match makers dream Erdei v Dawson.............? , surely they can think of better than that .

Lacy is a bigger puncher than Kessler , Bute/Inkin deserves a title shot the most(although from their point of view Kessler isn't a champion so it's obvious why they have him there) I'd propose Calzaghe is the best to watch but Lacy isn't a bad choice .
underated , Inkin Froch , Bute , someone who's genuinely better than Manfredo .
Super Middle fight of the year was Froch v Magee for me , but Lacy v Tyspko wasn't bad .


Arreola at #10 ?...........who cares what they wrote above , that right there is what has ruined their credibility for me .

Christ, some of that is pretty bad. How is Bell a bigger hitter than Haye, Macca or Ding? Some of the "deserves" a title shot stuff is really odd too. Most of the guys they talk about have one, or do they mean the ring belt?
