    Stacked division, Infact 175 and cruiser are by far the best divisions in the sport.

    Alvarez isn't that good, both Barrera and Gvozdyk would beat him quite easily.

    Alright I'll rate based on current resume/accomplishments, not H2H or potential greatness, otherwise I'd have Beterbiev and Gvozdyk at the very top.

    1. Stevenson
    2. Ward
    3. Kovalev
    4. Gvozdyk
    5. Barrera
    6. Alvarez
    7. Beterbiev
    8. Bivol
    9. Browne
    10. Smith Jr./Cleverly

    1) Stevenson ( The man technically)
    2) Ward (Due to circumstances)
    3) Kovalev (Got screwed against ^^^)
    4) Beterbiev ( Nobody can taste his power- Destroyed former champions in few fights)
    5) Gvoz ( Sent Chilemba in to retirement, Kovalev failed to do it).
    6) Alvarez ( Beat Pascal)
    7) Barrera ( Impressive victories over Shabra and Smith)
    8) Bivol ( Still young and getting better)
    9) Smith Junior ( Victories over Fonfara and Hopkins- still cavemen unrefined)
    10) Cleverly

    Cleverly did beat Braehmer, so that warrants him a top 10 ranking.

    1:ward (can't stand him and not legit #1 in my opinion but 2 wins are 2 wins I guess...)
    2:kovalev ( screwed in first fight vs ward. 2nd fight was tiring so may of lost down the stretch anyway. #2 until loses to someone below)
    3:stevenson (needs to fight a real contendor has power though)
    4:barrera ( based on resume only I believe some of the below would beat him)
    5:beterbiev ( no one wants to fight him in my eyes the best LHW just needs the resume to prove it)
    6:gvozdyk ( only seen him once looked impressive could beat barrera and Stevenson maybe)
    7:alverez ( not sure he could beat any of the 6 above him to be honest decent fighter though)
    8: marcus browne ( talented but will be exposed vs top 5 I think already won a lucky decision )
    9:kalajdzic ( needs browne rematch talented fighter )
    10:bivol ( dark horse of the division personally I believe he has the talent to beat anyone in the division)

    But he was lucky like Byrd against Klitschko; as he was far behind on point and it was rather a matter of time, when he would have gotten knocked out, just the injury of his opponent prevent it.

    3. Sergey Kovalew
    4. Eleider Alvarez
    5. Sullivan Barrera
    6. Nathaniel Cleverly
