    Haye V Valuev was the first PPV I ever bought.

    Frankly it's a miracle I didn't quit watching the sport there and then.

    He'd pick on bigger men also, walking heavybags for Fury.

    Holyfield-Bowe
    Holyfield-Lewis
    Haye-Klitschko
    Povetkin-Klitschko
    Cunningham-Fury

    These have to be among the best examples because the smaller fighters had elite skills, being stellar amateurs and/or world champions with good wins. But when taking on a much bigger man with skills and athleticism they struggled to deal with the physicality, range and power.

    How can legitimate 6'3'' (or near enough) Usyk be too small for Joshua, when Joshua got whooped by a 5'11''/6' guy in Andy Rice Pudding Jr, who also has shorter arms and is built like a potbelly pig?

    The thread Is referring to Usyk of Chisora who was clearly small.

    But according to recent rumors Usyk got weight for the next fight.

    There needs to be a super heavyweight division sometime soon, its unfair for 6ft2 guys to be fighting 6ft8 guys who are 2/3 stone heavier.

    Usyk against Chisora was 6'3'' and about 215lbs or so. And he beat Chisora comfortably.

    Would adding 3 stones (42lbs) of fat and water retention help him not to be too small?

    The hilarious thing is that if Usyk wasn't as lean as he is, and carried an extra 20lbs, nobody would be claiming that he's too small. Dillian Whyte is not taller than Usyk, but because he's carrying a lot more fat, water and some muscle, he's not too small.

    It’s his eyes, they are to close together, that’s why he can’t see hooks coming
