    Usyk is better than Warrington P4P and Povetkin`s KO was powerful, but it was against a fighter that was easy to hit and has a glass chin, Inoue sets up KO`s brilliantly and it was in the 1st round, plus it was a more significant fight because Inoue is rated in the top 10 P4P while Povetkin never has been.

    Usyk beat 3 world class opponents to Josh's 2, and unified all 4 belts. Of course, the expectations were higher for Usyk who is better and more versatile fighter than Warringthon.

    Out do it? 2 stars fighting against each other - yes it was the biggest fight, but there are like 50 fights that were way more interesting than this one.

    In what way? There was great skill and power on display in the Canelo fight and pure action.

    I can't argue with any of those winners.

    Their logic:
    "... David Price was dropped hard and bloody by the Russian veteran’s left hook, but he wasn’t out cold (though he was “out of it”). The towel was tossed in, the ref waved his 10-count, and it was
    indeed a devastating loss for the British Olympian, but it’s not like we haven’t seen him this position before. Price had been stopped on four previous occasions and to lesser fighters than Alexander Povetkin. It’s not like anyone thought that fight would end any differently than it did. I think the recent one-hitter-quitter KO that Dillian Whyte scored against the usually durable Derek Chisora in the 11th round of their recent rematch, or Naoya Inoue’s paralyzing opening-round two-piece against Juan Carlos Payano, who had never been stopped, are more deserving knockouts for that award."
