    If either Joshua,Fury, or Wilder unify all the belts (first time since Lennox) would they automatically surpass Wlad in terms of legacy?

    Yes, because Wlad went his whole championship run without facing his highest rated best guy out there opponent, Vitali. He even had him fight his rematches to get rid of anyone that beat him.

    No, Wlad had over 20 defenses. Two much good work done by Wlad.
    If someone unifies the middleweight title do they automatically surpass Hopkins?
    There is merit in holding down a division.

    If AJ beats Pulev , Usyk and Fury , yes.
    If Fury beats Wilder III , AJ and makes a few defences , yes.

    Lennox did not hold all the belts. Nobody did it at heavyweight yet.

    Wlad could come back and KO the winner, don't rule it out.

    Wilder has no belts to unify.

    Ruling over a division for a decade while fighting the best out there is very impressive. Unfortunately it’s also boring, and lacks romance. But that shouldn’t influence his greatness.

    Only if one of them unifies and defends for many years.
    If one of them unifies and gets KOed next fight they don't have a strong legacy like Wlad.

    The Ruiz loss may end up looking very bad for AJ. People tried to pump Ruiz up, but it's possible he never beats a top fighter again. It's hard to ever put AJ above Wlad, Fury, Wilder when those guys wouldn't lose to Ruiz, definitely Wlad and Fury. And they wouldn't run from a 280lb super obese version of Ruiz either. It's such a horrible loss in AJ's prime, it should never be forgiven.

    If either guy beats the other 2 that goes a long way historically especially of one become undisputed.. Whether people like it or not these three are clearly 1, 2 and 4 of this era.. If Fury does it then he’s clearly over Wlad since he ended Wlads reign..

    AJ is not the first champion to lose in a shock upset to a total nobody and he won't be the last either. It's somehow more embarrassing because Ruiz is fat? Most of the guys in the division are fat

    Nobody is unified anything until they beat Manuel Charr to determine who really is the one true champion.
