    Other than Joshua and Fury, which current heavyweight (up and coming or ranked, doesn't matter) do you think has the potential to be great, perhaps ATG? Which heavyweight seems to possess the attributes of the great heavies of the past did?

    Because of the work he did at Cruiser, Usyk will have a very low bar. I think he'll be remembered as a great fighter, and people will debate whether or not he was a great heavyweight.

    Dubois and Hrgovic are impressive.

    I hoe to see them in with better opposition soon.

    I'll also take Usyk.

    Provided that being 6.3 in an era of 6.6 fighters isn't going to derail him.

    It's been debated as to what extent Makhmudov can take a punch.

    But if it turns out, he can take one and his one amateur knockdown (8 years ago) was an anomaly then he's going to be a threat.
    That uppercut is vicious. Can't wait to see him in with someone top 15.

    He’s turning 34 in January he better hurry up if he’s supposed to be dominate the division haha. His style of high punch out put and quick elusive footwork will also not work well for a man well into his 30s.

    He’s got about 2 good years left in him so he better hurry up if he’s supposed to take over and dominate.
