    That doesn't make a better resume at HW though, which is what you wrote, especially when you look at it.
    The fighter you called a journeyman wasn't better than several Fury wins.
    The fighter you called a gatekeeper had already been beaten twice when prime by Fury already, so that there already means that those two fights alone aren't anything greater than Fury's HW resume, which just leaves Usyks win over Joshua, which I personally don't think is a bigger win than Fury's over Klitschko, but even if you did, you would have to consider that Klitschko after losing to Fury would also most likely be considered by many as Joshua's biggest win.
    Then throw in Fury's other wins and his overall HW resume is far greater than Usyks 3 HW wins
    Can't see how you could make a valid argument to say otherwise

    Joshua’s biggest win of his career was an at home win over Wlad in his 19th contest,going life and death until stopping Wlad in the 11th round. Fury has beat 2 long reigning Champions,one of them being Unified Champion for 10 years in there own back yards even returning to America when he was robbed of the decision in the first fight against Wilder to put it right. Those two victories alone are bigger and more ballsy than anything that Joshua has done so imo Fury has the better resume .

    It does though. He's accomplished more in three fights than Fury has in 30 and Wilder has in over 40

    Usyk's not part of this discussion re Fury vs Joshua resume, but Usyk's a great boxer, one of the best P4P, and let's hope Fury vs Usyk for all the belts can be made.

    Pianeta and Johnson are worth throwing in there too.

    I haver always thought his resume is better because he beat the better version of Klitschko, which is all that needs to be said.

    Hammer, Wallin, and Chisora all have big, winnable fights coming up, so fury's resume could get a good boost.

    Wlad
    Wilder
    Chisora

    Vs

    Wlad
    Parker
    Ruiz
    Whyte
    Povetkin

    To me the edge goes to AJ.

    Without Fury, HW wouldn't be nearly as interesting. It'd be Wilder's bum of the month group and AJ going life and death with the 35 and older club.

    Pulev. Very jab reliant technical guy.
    We can talk **** about Kubrat all we want, how he was old or never that good to begin with but only Wlad handed him his ass and dudes been a legit top 5-10 fighter for years.

    Joshua has the better depth and more quality wins, Fury has the best single win and more impressive performances. But what puts Fury ahead for me is AJ’s losses, especially the one against a mediocre fringe contender in Ruiz. Surely It is avenged, but you can’t pretend like it never happened when ranking him.

    Joshua doesn't have to count comprehensive losses on his resume. This is why Darnell Boone is actually an ATG.

    Wallin beats AJ?

    You are genuinely dumb if you think so

    Lol
    Now we both know that your trolling is now making you sound silly, but I'm happy to let you continue

    Do explain how he has done more in those 3 fights than Fury's whole career
    This will be good
