Default Who has been the top 10 HW's since the ATG Lewis has retired?

1. Wlad Klitschko

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

2. Vitali Klitschko

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

3. Chris Byrd

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

2. Povetkin

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

5. Sam Peter

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

6. Ibragimov

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

7. Chagaev

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

8. Brewster

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

9. Sanders

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

10. Chambers

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

11. Haye

I think there's a few unlucky to miss out here like Adamek and Gomez but never the less I'd be interested to hear a valid reason why the top 10 is wrong.


Edit. Changed to a top 11 otherwise I'll have to hear the usual whinging that someone isn't at least second.

Haye should be much higher.

Chambers?! Justify that...

There is no right or wrong, its all subjective. Beyond Wlad, Vitali & Byrd its any 7 from about a dozen. Gomez shouldnt be anywhere near the top10 though, that is just weird which is typical for you.

I did this same thread last year & nobody mentioned Chambers, not sure why you have.

Chambers has scalped Peter, Adamek, Brock, Dimitrenko, Purity, Guinn and Rossy. I don't see many having done better than that.


Edit. I've just relised Povetkin is missing from the main list.

Povetkin shouldnt be rated so high, Haye should be rated higher.

The amount of time you spend on here sucking his testicles & you forget all about him.

Just the other day you said him vs Wlad was the biggest fight since Lewis-Holyfield.

Only really watch the big fights at the lower weights to tell the truth. Just the way I've always been since a kid. Back then I certainly never dreamed of becoming the Worlds greatest middleweight etc.. I definitely prefer seeing the best in the World duking it out at the no limit to find out who is the king of the sport. Pretty much been this way since young Tyson came on the scene. Probably why I am a body builder now too.

The only person who's even arguably an ATG is Wlad. But here's my quick and dirty list of the top 10 HW of the last decade:

1) Wlad
2) Vitali

3) Byrd


4) Ruiz
5) Peter
6) Chagaev
7) Valuev
Povetkin
9) Adamek
10) Haye

Obviously rated on who beat who primarily, not head to head.

Sanders, Chambers and Ibragimov not far behind. There are several current prospects who I think should be better than anyone on the second half of the list. Tua wasn't really considered due to inactivity and lack of decent recent competition. I have Adamek ahead of Haye based on his actual wins, same with Ruiz, who I suspect is my most controversial ranking.


That said, only the top 3 are set in stone, and 4 - 13 are pretty interchangeable.

That's a fair list.

Yet people hate on Roy Jones Jr for putting on 25lbs to beat Ruiz's ass.
