    Canelo could maybe shift 100k tickets in Mexico City but the gross wouldn't be near Fury's Wembley same day sell out. I reckon Fury is the King of the sport.

    Fury is biggest. He is the only Transatlantic PPV star. Canelo only PPV in UK v a top Brit but Fury big PPV star in UK and America (the two biggest boxing markets).

    Well Mitch had Whyte up on the cards lol. Even Whyte's mum would not be that biased.

    Please post your list of top 10 heavyweights with reasons. I can't wait to see Fury's undefeated name underneath Joshua. Can't beat belly laughs.

    @Brixton Bomber has also done a runner. He will be in some serious pain.

    Canelo in America/Latin America
    Fury in the rest of the world.

    Overall - Canelo as America is where the money is.

    Canelo doesn't need the UK to be a star. His last fight against Plant did 800,000 US PPV buys and 20 mill at the gate. Vegas beats Wembley any day of the week.

    Based Purley on records I would day

    1. Usyk - best thebguybwhobat time had the best resume innthendivison in AJ. Also beat Chisora.

    2.AJ - Win over Wlad, Povetkin, Whyte, Parker, Ruiz, Pulev and Takam.

    3. Fury - Wins over Wlad, Whyte, Chisora x 2 and Wilder x 3.

    4. Whyte - wins over Povetkin, Parker, Rivas, Chisora x 2 and Helenius


    5. Parker - Wins over Ruiz, Chisora x 2, Takam, Hughie Fury and Fa.

    6. Hunter - Robbed a win over Povetkin. wins over Bakole and Kuzmin.

    7. Ruiz - Former unified champion beating the number 1 in the divison at the time in AJ. However nothing of note since


    8. Joyce - Takam, Dubois, Jennings and Ustinov.

    9. Wilder - Wins over Ortiz x 2, Duhaupas, Spzilka and Washington.

    10.Chisora - Wins over Takam , Spzilka, Price and was robbed a win against Helenius.

    However there more talented guys who haven't got the fights yet that I would back against that last few guys in Sanchez, Jalolov, Yoka and Bakole.

    I am confident at this stage he is bigger than AJ

    Fickle crowds and momentum has swung his way

    Surely after performances against Fury, you must have mixed up the positions of Whyte and Wilder?

    I know you have anti-Wilder bias programmed into your boxing rankings algorithm but those positions look brutal.

    I think he's been bigger than Joshua for quite some time now.
