    -The top fighters avoid each other
    -When (rarely) a “top” fight happens, 80% chance that the scorecards are going to be ****ed like Fury-Wilder

    Same **** happens in every division basically.

    I don’t wanna bring up UFC because it’s a completely different sport and UFC has his own problems too, but boxing should work in the same way.

    yep.

    The Cruiserweight WBSS where all the champions entered and they were all strong fighters - was really refeshing to watch. When the best fight the best boxing really delivers. It was a brilliant tournament from start to finish. But sadly I think it was a one off. The WBSS have problems.

    What fights aren't happening besides Wilder running from Joshua ?

    Since 2018.

    Wilder vs Ortiz
    Joshua vs Parker
    Parker vs Whyte
    Joshua vs Povetkin
    Martin vs Kownacki
    Fury vs Wilder

    ( Wilder vs Breazeale)
    ( Joshua vs Miller )

    Fighters can't fight every day , we got plenty of very good fights.....

    These are all top 10 sanctioned fighters ?

    As long as Wilder hasn't been knocked out cold, the HW division will continue to be a joke. His technique is that bad.

    You could say the say thing about 175 , where Adonis Cleaverson held onto the same belt till he was 41 years old.

    last year was very good i agree (in other divisions as well as HW) but this year is panning out to be quite pants so far. But we'll see.

    Except Stevenson ducked his mandatories for years and the top opponents at the weight. What is your point?

    it's only been 3 months ????

    Even last night's fight with Pulev vs Dinu was crazy one.

    There's plenty of guys outside the top 10 also, people need to really follow the sport and stop chasing Wilder , he's one fighter...there's literally dozens of good fights coming up.

    One guy ducking fights doesn't make an entire division a joke.

    That's exactly why many would feel that the heavyweight division is a joke. I understand the masses.

    What Wilder has to say about it all, also seems like a joke with the contradictions and excuses. 5 or so years now since the heavyweight division has had a unification, that is a joke. I wonder exactly how long it's been.

    Joshua unified with Klitschko AND Parker!

    it doesn't matter what the masses think, any one following the sport can think for themselves ( well some ) you yourself were questioning who was ducking who not long ago ( I don't even know how that's possible when a manager refusal of any meeting pertaining to the fight back in April 2018 ) but now it's irrefutable with resent events.

    if we were really being honest the history of the HWs, you would know undisputed isn't always going to happen, partly with dozens of belts now.

    I mean does Joshua really need FIVE belts to show everyone he's the best ?

    Is that what it takes another double standard in place ? Lol

    The masses can go after Wilder , that's who has been throwing roadblocks if they want, at this point it don't matter ....I just hope Breazeales right hand finds it mark!
