I really would like to know why Arreola and Robbery Helenius are above Pulev, not to mention David Haye above Adamek.

BTW Montero must be on drugs. Some good stuff too

This era is interesting in that the top guys outside of k2 are not really the best at h2h.
To rate Adamek anything lower than 3 is outrageous. He is clearly the third best heavyweight of his era based on resume. In h2h abilities, David Haye is a very easy choice for #3(maybe even #2).
In h2h abilities, Puluv also goes up to top 3-5 as well. Resume wise though, Adamek stands head and shoulders above them.

Adamek's resume is good because he isn't fighting any huge guys from top 10. If he would fight them his resume would be terrible. He tries to fight guys like Chambers or Solis, who are not as physical as Helenius or Wladimir or even Pulev. Adamek is like Sphinks from Tyson fight. He can beat some fighters, but physical and powerful fighters with some skills would level him.

Solis should also be higher.

Why would I have a completely unproven fighter in even the top 20, despite his huge potential?

Grow up, already.

Haye would be higher than Povetkin, in my opinion.

Wlad
Vitali
Haye
Povetkin

Would be my top four.
