    The rest of the world doesn't seem to think as highly of Usyk as this board does.

    Yes they do, only a certain group of people don't think usyk is impressive. Mostly out of pure jealousy. They have a bias against eastern european athletes both in boxing and in basketball. It is what it is.

    No one said not impressed, just not as impressed as this boardt. He's done no more than Crawford has to claim p4p #1. Get your head out of your ass

    if Fury was shrunk down to welterweight would he beat Crawford or Spence? That is the point of P4P lists.

    Fury's style is all about being bigger which is the opposite of the criteria needed to be on a P4P list.

    Heavyweights generally have no place in P4P lists, except for special cases such as Usyk.

    Fury has serious skills, he's not just "big". Very few heavies can move like fury, go 12 rounds like fury, switch hit like fury, counter punch like fury, move on the ropes like fury. That being said, I do agree he doesn't belong on a p4p list. Usyk does though because he moved up from CW.

    Same here because Crawford should be number 1.

    Espn's rankings are crappola. Those boys are extremely biased.

    Usyk is #1or #2 easy. He cleared out CW fighting on the road and has taken nearly all the HW belts in his huge upset of Joshua. You better believe if Usyk was from the USA he'd be #1 and these ESPN homies would be licking his ass at every opportunity. He'd be glorified as an ATG.
