    I'm seeing a lot of idiotic heavyweight rankings out rn...

    POVETKIN AND PULEV ARE GARBAGE now wake up

    Parker will be the shining star of the division along with
    USYK tbd

    Pulev is as solid as they get.

    Let me tweak your list just a little bit.

    1. Fury
    2. Wilder
    3. Ruiz
    4. Joshua
    5. Whyte

    And no Pulev isn't a bum or shot. He just dominated Hughie Fury more impressively than Parker, and a few years back Chisora better than Whyte did either time, barring the obvious KO round.

    Povetkin is looking a little worse for wear. Usyk however, is the future of the division.

    I don't understand the concept of parker ahead of joshua hes lost twice when he stepped up in level whilst joshua once.

    Parker and Whyte above Joshua despite the fact he beat them both? I know boxing isn't black and white but what is the reasoning behind this? I'm genuinely intrigued...

    Fury
    Ruiz
    Wilder
    Joshua
    Whyte

    I don't see why Wilder should be above Ruiz when he hasn't beaten Joshua and only has one belt. I can't put Ruiz above Fury because I don't think one win over the number one puts you at number one in his stead, and H2H I think Fury embarrasses Ruiz. Joshua shouldn't be dropped from the rankings altogether just for losing his belts. Let's all remember what he achieved before that. Whyte deserves the number five spot over Povetkin, Pulev or Ortiz based on current run of form.

    Can’t argue with those rankings and the statements about Pulev. I can’t wait to see Usyk properly arrive on the scene.

    I agree with that top five. Having said that, I can imagine nearly everyone in that top five beating one of the other four on any give day. The one exception is perhaps Ruiz beating Fury. For some reason I couldn't see that happen. But it's entirely possible that I got that wrong. But interesting times for sure.

    Know what you mean, fury at his best should easily be able to keep Ruiz off him and jab his head off but you just never know I guess.....

    I wouldn’t say garbage. They are fighters and should be respected. I don’t believe you have the balls to go out and do what they do

    Sorry I know that was a lil insensitive to you in this pc culture
    They're obviously not garbage. Are they way past their prime and a shell of what they used to be? Yes

    Thanks for asking
    As far as I'm concerned, Whyte and Joshua are 1-1. Sure, Joshua beat Parker in a non impressive decision performance but Parker beat Ruiz if you go by that. Since I joined this forum, I've been saying that I thought AJ was the most overrated overhyped fighter because of his status. AJ's chin and gas tank was badly exposed and I think after he loses to Ruiz again, he will be done completely. I like AJ as a person and respect him

    I'm sorry but Pulev vs Fury was an ugly ugly fight which badly exposed Hugie and all Pulev did was throw a few combinations for the entire fight. Pulev almost lost his last fight. He's sluggish and looks old in the ring.

    Not quite sure I can believe I'm about to say this but I actually agree with every single word you've written in this post.

    I agree with it so much I can't even light heartedly bait you in my usual passive aggressive way.
