    Babic, Wallin, Hughie, and Canelo?? Are you crazy?

    These people have collectively done nothing in any division Usyk is relevant in besides beat journyemen or in Canelo's case literally nothing, and I like all of them.

    I don't think any of them are world-beaters. Okolie is the one that struck me--a cruiser whose one name win was a post-covid Glowacki?

    If he manages to beat Dubois, Lovejoy, Chisora in a rematch, Christina Hammer, a come backing Holyfield, Canelo and Shawn Porter, will be be remembered at the best?

    First off, take a look at the people in the conversation for Heavyweight GOAT right now. They all not only have multiple wins over sitting or former Lineal Heavyweight Champions, as well as top contenders, they also have some of those by dominant stoppages! It's very hard to get into the mainstream GOAT conversation.

    Fight of the century Fury vs Foreman confirmed? Maybe since Canelo is a name here, we could just have Fighting Harada vs Fury as fight of the millennium.

    Did you hear Usyk anointing himself as the greatest or the best ever?
    He would need to do that first and often to convince easily susceptible people you are the all time best... just keep repeating it so people just start believing it and repeating it themselves.

    Then he would need to beat quite a number of really good fighters, Fury, a two time champion but with only one defence would be nice to have in there, and of course two time multi beltholder Joshi twice is a very good scalp. Now he would need another 3 or 4 of those guys, with the quite deep Cruiser resume he already has, to maybe be in the discussion for all-time #1.
    But those guys simply aren't there, so that's an issue, because even if he would be able to beat them, they simply don't exist... And on top of all that, he's not even remotely American either, which dq's him on the spot anyway.

    Harada maybe a bit tough for Fury, though!

    Wilder and Wallin are closer to Fury in height, I know Wallin is only 2 inches taller than Usyk, but every inch matters hugely when you’re fighting Fury
    Fury isn’t the same fighter and doesn’t even have the same style now to how it was in the McDermott, Pajik or Cunningham fights, come on, that was like 8 years ago them fights don’t represent what Fury is now, I would agree that Fury didn’t look impressive at all then, but if the Fury now and the Fury 8 years ago had different faces, you wouldn’t be able to tell at all that it was him from the fighting styles

    Because Ali would beat the literal **** out of him, other than that I guess it’s not.

    Usyk is already a GOAT imo.

    He'd be the best HW since Lewis for sure and maybe since Ali's era.

    People overrrate old time boxer too much juste because they had a lot of fights against cab drivers...modern fighter never get their credits even if skillwise they are well above some 1900 "boxer"

    Usyk literally has zero flaws and, as desperately as they long for him to do so in order for them to be able to justify their hate, he has literally given the blasphemers and haters zero ammunition and reason to dislike him which only infuriates and drives them insane even more :lol:

    The GOAT has to be the complete package and no fighter who has walked this earth is more complete or as flawless as Usyk

    Take those rose-tinted glasses over to the Classic where they belong if you wanna talk dinosaur boxing

    Usyk is the pinnacle of human evolution and the perfect man, warrior, entertainer, boxer and fighter.
