    Seems that you have so many top heavys and have had some entertaining bouts between them.
    Do you remember a time in UK boxing history when you had so many world class heavyweights?

    You’re in the wrong place asking about top heavies.

    According to this place

    Fury is a hype job
    Joshua is a chinny robot
    Whyte is a pudding
    Chisora is way past it but was never great anyway
    Dubois is a quitter
    Joyce is old and slow
    Hughie has pillows for fists

    Even Dave Allen gets disrespected.

    Just reading that list and saying top heavies is pretty funny.

    Yes we have alot of the current top heavies but its a pretty bad bunch. Fury and AJ aside there is a massive gap in quality.

    Having said that if they all jumped in together we would all be happy and watch.

    The UK is running heavyweight boxing. You lot can **** and moan all you want but the scene is thriving with greatness.

    A good football analogy would be the current Heavyweight scene is probably similar to the Scottish Premier League which is a substandard league with only 2 capable of winning it. Those two Glasgow Teams know that they get seriously found out when facing elite level opposition.

    I fear for any of the current crop in there with a prime Lennox Lewis, Vitali Klitschko, Iron Mike Tyson or Evander Holyfield.

    Butterbean would wipe out Dave Pudding Allen.

    And to be fair that analogy pretty much describes heavyweight boxing for the best part of 20 years never mind today.

    Isn't the German League also a 2 horse race?

    More like a 1 horse race, in the last 12 seasons Bayern have won the league 10 times
