    Make it happen. Everyone should be fighting everyone for supremacy at heavyweight. That's how superstars are made.

    Yeah plenty of elite amateurs in the pro ranks now. Let's see fights between them all. The ingredients for a very exciting and active HW division are there. Just needs to be stirred.....

    There's about 7-8 heavyweights out there right now that beat Whyte. Joe Joyce beats him handy too. He's a fat fraud

    Whyte is better than he showed last night, but he's a 30-something who appears to be trending downward and I agree that now is the time to feed him to a young contender while he's still credible.

    If Whyte gets back to the mental and physical shape as he was for Chisora 2 he will wipe the floor with Hrgovic....

    Look at Molina,... he didnt wanna be there at all... he quit so quickly... but then dug deep and had success with overhand right...

    Imagine... Whyte... when has he never give maximum violence, maximum pressure....


    He fought Rivas with the PED hearing on the same day.

    Whyte is too much for Hrgovic to deal with... Whyte can take a punch, and he can give a punch.


    Whyte beats Hrgovic... PLACE YOUR BETS NOW...COME AT ME BRO

    The shape and form he had in Chisora II? Yeah going life and death with Chisora again before rallying to score a come from behind KO. Hrgovic has a lot to worry about there.

    I think we have seen how strong a motivated Chisora is... he smoked Price, and Spilka... he has taken many guys the distance... he KOd Takam something AJ was not able to do and AJ had 11 rounds to do it... in fact Takam took AJ the distance poor stoppage...

    Chisora had Takam out in 7 rounds, with two knock downs, same shot.

    Whyte beat Rivas, a top contender, highly decorated amateur

    Whyte beat Parker who has never been down in his life, and took AJ the distance

    Whyte beat undefeated Browne, giving him the first KO of his career

    Oh boy.... Smoking iron chinned warriors like Price and Szpilka. Being shut out by Takam before finding lightning in a bottle. Chisora is tough make no mistake about it, but top fighters shouldn't struggle with him like Whyte has.

    In a neutral venue Rivas and Parker both beat Whyte in a rematch. Whyte BARELY won those fights even with highly questionable reffing benefiting him.

    Whyte is an overachiever I'll give him that. Despite his ballooning up and down in weight, limited skills he has carved out a good career for himself(with some help of course) But he's not the fighter that exists in your mind.

    Not lightning in a bottle for chisora, because it wasnt a lucky punch... he landed twice against takam... and it his his money shot as proven with Spilka and others.

    As for top fighters not struggling with current chisora? AJ had a hard time getting Takam out of there, and Takam aint a known puncher... at least not like Chisora. And both have grinite chins but Id favour Chisora's more.


    You say Whyte got lucky and yeah it was a close fight, but if Whyte is as bad as you make it out to be he should have lost those fights no questions asked... it shouldnt even have been close... he should have lost easily.

    So Whyte gets credit for overcoming the biggest skill gaps in the division, which is no easy feat in boxing otherwise we could all take up boxing now and be victorious.... Whyte overcame a 15 year skill gap against Parker... with that much experience Parker should have won CONVINCINGLY... the referee can only influence the fight so much.

    Anyways, you can believe what you want. I back Whyte to win against most bar Fury as he is too awkward for Whyte... Whyte would need a solid gameplan... which his team always provide for him... he always has the best plan.... and thats another bonus for Whyte

    Hrgovic is on his way to the top but he's still not on the level of top 10 fighters, no way he would beat Whyte (assuming that Whyte comes in his normal shape).

    Hrgovic should fight more guys like Dubois, Joyce, Jennings, Hunter, Breazeale, H. Fury, Price. Then get a fight or two vs Chisora, Pulev, Rivas and similar. Then he can try the real big guys.

    Whyte should get in shape and opt for Ortiz, Miller, Povetkin, Kownacki and similar and eventually a title shot at the middle/end of next year, though I doubt it will happen... for reasons behind the scene.

    The fighter I saw looked like he had one foot out the door, he ain't risking a cash out fight with a young lion
