magee fight would cement his position as a real contender i agree.

I think he does deserve it, but you have to wonder about people and their agenda's where one gets shit and another doesn't for what is basically the same situation

Billy, how have you come to the conclusion that Anderson it the biggest puncher? It's not like he has a 90% KO record, he's stopped 7 out of 11 which is fairly typical at that stage of a fighters career.

Groves has stopped 7 in 9 including a previously never stopped opponent in Adamu, so unless you've taken them all on the pads what is this based on?

as I said, Mitchell beat Prescott who is beyond Domestic level. When Mitchell was due to get a title fight in 2008 people said it was to soon.

No he hasn't. He's fought Nathan King and thats it. DeGale has fought King and beat him easier.

Groves beat Adamu who is better than anybody Anderson has fought.

Smith has beaten Dodson and Quigley who are several levels better than anybody Anderson has fought.

Smith has not beat anyone beyond Domestic level. Mitchell has. Thats why people are critical of Smiths high ranking.

he may punch harder but his defence isnt supreme and having power isnt all that counts. if kenny got offered the groves or smith fights right now would he take it?
