    Just compare their performances against Hughie Fury... Parker lost that fight in my opinion. Counting punches/jab. He also had **** poor stamina compared to Pulev who outworked a much younger man.

    Its discgraceful to Pulev.

    I think your instinct is correct. Ruiz largely depends on moving a hell of a lot better than his opponent because they tend to have height and reach advantage - no help having faster hands if the feet can't get you into range - but I don't think he moves better than Fury, who with this fact alone neutralises Ruiz trump card and brings the match-up back to height and reach. Fury UD.

    1) Fury
    2) Wilder
    3) Ruiz
    4) AJ
    5) Whyte

    But right now I would pick Whyte to beat AJ and Ruiz.

    Not having AJ in the top 5 is actually ******ed.

    268lb walking blob is the WBA, IBF & WBO unified champ

    And this suicidal drug-ravaged inactive 40% bloated shell of Fury's grandfather's shot ghost would be the WBC champ if not for those thieving scumbags Haymon Zero Protection Services

    I can't just rank Whyte higher, I can't just say "well I believe Whyte.."

    I am basing that list off of results, performances and circumstances right now, I was just saying I believe Whyte wins those fights but until he does I can't just say it, Whyte has to go and do it.

    Parker is the definition of mediocre but Usyk? That guy is going to be a problem if he can take a HW punch.

    1. Fury - Highest IQ, best natural advantages and has movement that would trouble all of the top 5. Would beat AJ by decision, and has already beaten Wilder in my eyes. Ruiz, Whyte and Parker all lose to Fury.
    2. Ruiz - Fast hands, good chin, reasonable boxer that has a pretty good ring IQ. Would lose to Fury and Usyk in my opinion. 50/50 with Wilder and would have to dig deep to beat Whyte and Parker.
    3. Joshua - Regardless of the Ruiz KO he would easily beat Ortiz, Pulev and potentially Whyte. Wilder and Parker are 50/50 fights. Suspect chin that also has gas issues, much like Wilder.
    4. Whyte - 50/50 fight with Wilder, but has much more boxing ability, better chin and a better resume than Wilder. Beat Parker, but would lose the rematch.
    5. Wilder - Outstanding power, limited boxing ability and poor ring IQ. Suspect chin with gas issues like Joshua.
    6. Parker - Fast hands, reasonable movement (AJ and Wilder both struggle with movement) but lacks the mental to throw caution in the wind.
    7. Ortiz - Good chin, good motor but limited boxing ability. Very slow and predictable. Would lose to the fighters above who can move and carry their stamina.
    8/9/10 Pulev, Povetkin and Brezeale

    One name left out from the above is Usyk. He is the man that I think can do damage amongst the heavies.
    His movement, ability to cut off the ring and fight on the back foot would trouble the big guys.
    His ability to fight on the inside, punch selection and ring IQ would beat the likes of Ruiz, Whyte and Parker.

    However, he was left out of the list above as he isn't tested as a HW yet.
    For what it's worth, within 18 months I think he slides into 3rd, above Joshua, Whyte, Wilder and Parker.
