Updated

1. Wladimir Klitschko- An ATG. Tremendous jab, two fisted knockout power, great defense, textbook world class skills, very strong.

2. Vitali Klitschko- Very good fighter. A giant, Unorthodox, high workrate, good finisher, crafty defense, very good chin.

3. David Haye- Fantastic blend of handspeed and brutal power in both hands, dangerous finisher, great head movement, good counterpuncher, in great physical condition.

4. Kubrat Pulev- physically strong, world class jab, intelligent, very good attrition power, good stamina.

5. Alexander Povetkin- Good fundamentals, good skills, good combination puncher, ring savvy, good workrate, good chin

6. Odlanier Solis- extremely talented/gifted, elite skills/movement, good combinations, stiff jab, terrific footwork

7. Eddie Chambers- Very slick, terrific skills on defense, top notch footwork/upperbody movement, fast handspeed

8. Robert Helenius- Tremendous puncher, one of the scariest finishers we have seen, physically tough, good size.

9. Tyson Fury- A giant, talented, good skills, good puncher, good workate, very strong

10. Seth Mitchell- Hard puncher, aggressive, physically strong, big heart, good physical condition.



Tomasz Averagemek does not make my list because despite being a great warrior, he is not a world class fighter.

Arreola does not make my list because he has an embarassing loss to tomasz averagemek.

Mitchell doesnt deserve a top 10 spot. So as Fury. Price, Magomed, Boytsov and Arreola will beat Mitchell.

Also, its disrespectful to call Adamek, a real warrior, who will step into a ring with anyone, unlike many of the fighters you mentioned, to call a guy Averagemek. You called him a warrior but then that? C'mon.

Adamek or Arreola outbox and stop Mitchell. Based on what we've seen of Mitchell. Mitchell could improve, but I think he gets stopped by either.

I'd favor both those guys over Helenius too.

Otherwise good list.

I won't bother putting down your Adamek bias again, but I think the first five is pretty accurate. Past them, the contenders have mostly left us with some very guessy guesswork. Especially Solis.

Seth Mitchell is a joke, this guy started boxing in what 06? I also remember Witherspoon wobbling him when they fought. this guy isn't going to do well when he steps up. Several guys that aren't on this list would wipe the floor with Mitchell, such an overrated prospect.

Solis is based on potential. He's a fat slob in the real world unfortunately. Adamek at #9. Fury is undeserving IMO.

Adamek's a bit like Froch, looks like he should lose on paper but almost always finds a way to win. He's not the fastest, strongest or most skilled heavy, not by a long shot, but potential and physical attributes alone do not win you fights. Adamek possesses an old school toughness, ring savvy and desire that gives him the edge over a lot of the opposition. As of right now he'd beat both Mitchell and Solis, and a fight with Povetkin would be dead even IMO.

I think Povetkin would edge out Adamek by just a bit, but otherwise agreed. Adamek is a warrior and a tough SOB.

6. Odlanier Solis- extremely talented/gifted, elite skills/movement, good combinations, stiff jab, terrific footwork

7. Eddie Chambers- Very slick, terrific skills on defense, top notch footwork/upperbody movement, fast handspeed

8. Robert Helenius- Tremendous puncher, one of the scariest finishers we have seen, physically tough, good size.

9. Tyson Fury- A giant, talented, good skills, good puncher, good workate, very strong

10. Seth Mitchell- Hard puncher, aggressive, physically strong, big heart, good physical condition.



Tomasz Averagemek does not make my list because despite being a great warrior, he is not a world class fighter.

Arreola does not make my list because he has an embarassing loss to tomasz averagemek.
Fury and Mitchell were both schooled by Page and McDermott so I wouldn't have those there yet. Plenty of time for both though especially Fury.

1. Wladimir Klitschko

2. Vitali Klitschko

3. Povetkin

4. Haye

5. Kubrat Pulev

6. Adamek

7. Eddie Chambers

8. Solis

9. Thompson

10. Glazkov

Don't know about Mitchell and Helenius to be honest .. Otherwise good list.. I however think that a prime Vitali would have destroyed any HW today

David Price beats Tyson Fury no doubt. As for Helenius...a guy beaten by Chisora (we all know he was)...whats he doing on the list...even the rocked-by-a-jab Adamek deserves to be above this clown.
