    1989 version of Biggs was still better than everyone Whyte beat apart from Parker possibly, who Whyte didn't really beat convincingly at all.

    Have you even watched these fights?:dunno

    I don't think so, as Joshua was in the first 4 rounds (which he all clearly lost in my view) mainly on the ropes and also at the end of round 5 (when he was exhausted) till the last quarter. He only kept the centre at the end of the fight.
    And vs. Powetkin was he often to the ropes as well, as he was very passive and got in 4 of the first 6 rounds dominated. He didn't win one single round in the first half here. He was here mostly on the backpedal and didn't throw a lot back (got outworked by a decent margin).

    Povetkin was only landing occasionally v AJ, it was a good fight though.

    The whole of the fourth round was in center of the ring and it was an even round, AJ exploded in the 5th, punching Wlad all over the ring, cutting him and dropping him but punched himself out and Wlad dominated the last half of the round with AJ badly hurt, really exciting round.

    Powetkin outlanded Joshua 3 - 1 and won every round, four comfortable. He made the pressure and pushed him to the ropes and in a corner.

    Joshua went all out at the begin of the 5th. rounds, because he lost all of the first 4 and got handily outboxed. He was barely competitive and these previous and had just not the skill, as he took many jabs and was not able to fire back.
    You should watch it again, the first 4 and the rounds 6 - 9. In the first 8 rounds kept Klitschko most of the time the center (apart of the first minute in round 5).
    Though two of the first 4 rounds were tight, but I think "Mr. Steehammer" rather edged them than his opponent.

    They both landed the same amount of shots in the 4th.

    But Klitschko more clean and snipping (sharper), who was also on he attack and owned the general ringship.

    AJ looked worried but the fight was faily even until AJ gassed punching himself out in the 5th.

    It was on the official scorecards possible, but only because it took place in London. Otherwise at any place outside of Britain, Joshua only won 3 - 4 rounds and in the first half just the 5. round.
