    So you're saying that Frank Moran is better than AJ??

    I agree. I was surprised how bad he was/is. In his interviews talking about himself he seemed pretty intelligent.
    Maybe he smokes right before he goes on the air. Or maybe he doesn't smoke before he goes on.

    Lewis kept his gloves low.
    Joshua holds his gloves high.

    Dempsey and Louis never got respect when they walked into a room. That’s just another old fable nostalgists keep pushing to make their fanboy idols seem better than they were. I’ve talked to guys who been in the same room with Joshua and apparently he commands respect. His 6’6 250lb towers over everything else. Dempsey and Louis were basically average height even in their day. They knew nothing about boxing, except of course the lucky homerun punch. But then again anyone could do that against the fighters back then who didn’t even know how to generate force with their fist and touch another human being with it.

    His personality never matched his ability , which partly explains why his legacy and public appeal lags a little behind his achievements. Some fighters are the other way round.

    He seems very full of himself. I know he is one of the best ever but a little humility would get him more respect.

    Never commanded the respect as some other fighters during or post career. A great fighter but a bit of a prat. The first image that comes to mind when I think of him is his protective cup pulled up to his neck.

    You underrate Ruiz.
    Perhaps you haven't been following the heavyweights in the last few years.
    Ruiz has been known to be a top 10 level contender for a while. He might not have been in everyone's list before the AJ fight but people who know the heavyweight scene knew he was as good as anyone who might be in the 6-10 places on the lists.
    Many of us said straight away "well, he's a clear improvement on Miller".

    Rahman had been KO'd by Makaev just a few fights prior to challenging Lewis so I dispute the idea that he was a sure-thing to force himself into a title fight at that time.
