    Y'all musta forgot!

    The big Russian is coming for the belts. I found this new video on Youtube. Nothing new, but some of you need a reminder.

    He looked like ass against Usyk. Like 2-3 levels below.

    Like 50 year old Povetkin or crack head Whyte?
    Outside of Fury and AJ HW top 10 is horrible.
    Even Usyk has declined since beating Gassiev.

    Rocks, scissors, paper my friend. Usyk is a superior technician, but Gassiev, who is younger, harder hitting, and carries the weight better, will due just fine against in the stationary dinosaur division.

    Let's get specific.

    WBC top five, including champ(s):
    FURY
    Wilder
    Usyk
    Ruiz
    Joyce

    WBA
    SUPER: JOSHUA
    REGULAR: CHARR
    GOLD: HELENIUS
    Bryan
    Usyk
    Wilder
    Ortiz
    Ruiz

    WBO
    JOSHUA
    Usyk
    Joyce
    Parker
    Pulev
    Ruiz

    IBF
    JOSHUA
    Pulev
    Martin
    Usyk
    Hunter
    Hrgovic

    He beats most of them comfortably.

    Pulev- shot and stationary, perfect for the Russian
    Martin- Gassiev reportedly broke his ribs sparring
    Ortiz- c'mon. The guy has severe blood pressure problems
    Bryan- Please
    Charr- Please
    Helenius- pretty shot, despite the Kownacki win

    I would also give him a chance against...

    Hrgovic- highly heralded, but unproven
    Joyce- props to him and the jab, but he is slow and getting very old
    Hunter- I like the man, but he did not prove as much as a cruiser
    Ruiz- good when he's good, embarrassing when he's not
    Parker- I like Parker, but he's only above average

    Only Usyk, Fury, and Joshua IF HE CHOOSES TO BOX would be long nights, in my opinion.

    More like a Pale Donkey cause that ass is too stubborn and lazy to get in the ring.

    I'd like to to see MG vs. a top 10-15 HW. He could make some waves in the division :cool:

    Love Gassiev, throws with bad intentions. Hopefully he has good success because he loves a tear up

    Tbh I was surprised how easy Usyk beat him.
    Also surprised how small he looked against him too

    Usyk is definitely big enough for a heavy. Usyk is going to be the king real soon. Too skilled and tough,

    Need to ko him to beat him Imo

    He's too small for the big boys of the division but he has serious power so can make some noise for sure

    He's even stiffer than Pulev; Usyk humiliated him, slapping him at will. He'd beat HW's at the Tye Fields level but no one higher than that.

    Plus he's really very hairy; no one wants to fight close to him so decent boxers beat him easily.
