    I think a hacker is messing with Fury's twitter.

    Pretty clear that Ruiz should be number considering he has 3 of the 4 belts snd just beaten the guy with by far the best resume in division.

    Except Joshua hasn't got, and never did have, "by far the best resume in the division".
    It's a myth created by Hearn and lapped up by many fans.

    Joshua's best win was generally considered a 41 year old Klitschko, who was coming off a bad loss, a lay-off and hadn't won a fight in 2 years.
    If not Klitschko, then Parker.
    After that we have 39 year old Povetkin.
    The rest of Joshua's resume is pretty poor.
    Whyte, a legit contender now, was an unproven domestic-level prospect when Joshua beat him.

    Parker was the only good young contender/title-holder Joshua ever beat. And Parker was coming off three unimpressive fights in a row.

    Joshua arguably has the best resume but certainly not "by far".

    Povetkin, Parker and probably Whyte would all likely be the best win of Wilder's career. Klitschko would without question. If we're bringing age into play then let's not forget his best win is against a guy who makes Wlad look like a teenager.

    Wilder has a pretty poor resume.
    I don't think anyone seriously disputes that.
    But I consider Wilder a live and dangerous fighter in his own right and I judge Tyson Fury to have a win against him.

    AJ resume of beating the likes of Wlad, Povetkin, Whyte, Parker, Takam and Breazeale is clearly better then:

    Furys - Wald,Chisora x 2 and Johnson.

    Wilder - Ortiz, Breazeale, Duhaupas, Spzilka and Stiverne.

    It's very clear.

    Wlad in 2015 is better than Wlad in 2017, and Fury beat him more comfortably.
    Most people agree Fury deserved a WIN over Wilder, which is better than any Joshua win as well.
    So, Fury's top 2 results are better than any 2 results of Joshua's.

    Chisora in 2011 is equal to Whyte in 2015.
    Chisora in 2014 is better than Whyte in 2015.
    Chisora is, it seems, better than Takam.

    Cunningham and Hammer are as good as Breazeale. In fact, Cunningham was probably better.

    So, it's at least close.

    There's really nothing in it. Amazing some AJ fans think AJ has this fantastic resume, head and shoulders above the rest. Totally brainwashed by Hearn.

    They can talk about resumes all they like, AJ's resume consists of beating a whole heap of fringe contenders/contenders that were over the hill at the time. It's a very overrated resume and he'd still get done by Fury and Wilder if he wants to still fight them.

    With the exception of old Wlad at 41 years of age - his CV is full of puddings.

    Posted this a long time ago and the only thing that changed on his CV is a loss to a mega pudding.

    Fury got in the ring with Wilder - that is the best and most dangerous opponent faced by either him or Tony Dosh PPV.

    The Fury performance against Wilder also exceeded any of Tony Dosh's performances to date including the bashing of Matt Skelton and Michael Sprott.

    ESPN are advertising Fury's fight during their coverage of the NBA Finals.

    How far has Tyson come? He's on a different level to AJ now.

    One of those three guys has a loss by stoppage. You don’t consider the draw between Wilder and Fury — whether you want to give Fury the W or call it a draw or whatever, you can’t pretend it doesn’t exist. Just like you can’t pretend AJ’s resume doesn’t include a loss.
