    Significantly imo. Lewis is a top 5 or 6 ATG, Joshua...uhhh, top 30? Joshua could win the rematch and still be nowhere near Lewis either in skillset or ATG level. I actually admire Wilder's heart and punch far more than anything AJ. No disrespect to fans.

    Fury does quite a few things better than Lewis? Showboating definitely. Making idiotic statements is about a toss up. Cherry picking, without a doubt.

    Anyone who has seen Mercer vs Lewis.
    Wouldn’t be shouting from the rooftops that Paint Dry Parker easily beats Mercer and is superior to him in every way.

    Parker is nothing special. Parker wouldn’t have been able to live with the pace set by Mercer that day he fought against Lewis.

    Exactly. I can't think of a fight where Mercer fought with such determination it was a competitive close fight but Lewis clearly edged it.
    I'm not sure what the issue was with Mercer as he had a great amateur pedigree just seemed to be not there in some of his big fights which is a shame as he had skill and was a tough dude.

    Most Afro-Caribbeans are the descendants of captive Africans held in the Caribbean from 1502 to 1886 during the era of the Atlantic slave trade. Black people from the Caribbean who have migrated to the U.S., Canada, Europe, Africa and elsewhere add a significant Diaspora element to Afro-Caribbean history.

    Mark I was being facetious with Olu using his flawed logic on himself.I'm perfectly well aware of the history but thank you for your input.

    Aj was the better inside fighter and better finisher than Lewis.

    No he's not. Joshua would've folded under Mercers pressure and infighting. Joshua doesn't usually even fight on the inside. He usually needs space to throw combinations but he can fight on the inside if forced like against Whyte

    Lewis was a better combo puncher and had a better hook, AJ`s hooks are poor and he rarely throws them, he floored Ruuiz with a hook after an uppercut, Lewis would have finished Ruiz though s he had one punch KO power whereas AJ doesn`t.
