    Usyk has wins over.....

    Michael Hunter
    Hunter stopped Kiladze more impressively and faster than Kownacki, same round as Joyce.
    Hunter stopped Bakole, who went on to legitimately stop Wach for the first time in his career.
    Hunter stopped Ustinov, something Charr couldn't do, and 3 rounds faster than Pulev.

    Joe Joyce
    Joyce stopped Lewison 2 rounds faster than Whyte in his first match as a pro.
    Joyce stopped Lenroy Thomas in 2, Thomas has a win over Allen, who has a win over Browne.
    Joyce KO'd Hanks in 1, it took Andy Ruiz 4 rounds.
    Joyce stopped Stiverne in 6, who aside from Fury is the only man to go the distance with Wilder.

    Tony Bellew
    Bellew KO'd David Haye in the 11th round in 2017.
    Bellew KO'd Haye in the 5th round in 2018.
    Bellew KO'd BJ Flores a round quicker than American HW Trevor Bryan.

    Mairis Briedis
    Briedis KO'd Charr cold, quicker ad in more devastating fashion than Vitali and Poverkin
    Briedis beat Mike Perez more impressively than Jennings or Takam.
    Briedis KO'd Danny Williams 2 rounds faster than Christian Hammer in 2012.

    Marco Huck
    Huck should have a 7-5 or 8-4 win over a prime Povetkin, but got robbed with a MD.

    Thabiso Mchunu
    Mchunu schooled Eddie Chambers more impressively than Povetkin, and Adamek, who arguably got a gift.

    Krzysztof Glowacki
    Glowacki beat Cunningham who too the 0 of Mansour and was robbed against Glazkov, and Tarver.
    Glowacki stopped Huck, who should have a win over Povetkin.

    Mihai Nistor
    Nistor is the only man to stop Anthony Joshua.

    Magomedrasul Medzhidov
    Medzhidov defeated Anthoy Joshua.
    Medzhidov nearly decapitated Dychko.

    Hell.... arguably Top 3.:deal:

    Amateurs don't count imo. But if it does then he's 4 imo, after Joshua, Whyte then Fury (Fury would be 2 but he didn't officially beat Wilder). He'd be 3 for about a month until Whyte beats Rivas, unless he doesn't then he stays top 3

    You put forth a good case I’d just like to see what he weighs in at and how that effects his ability. I’d also like to see him in with an actual heavyweight fighting above the 200lb limit

    On another note I totally forgot about Cunningham beating mansour and was at the tarver fight in Newark. After huck and glowacki put on a war the crowd of mostly poles and huck fans really didn’t seem to even watch the fight in the ring

    It could be argued they were both semi-pro matches, they were in the WSB, sans headgear, and 5 rounders. Sure maybe the gloves weren't pro regulation, but look what Medzhidov and Nistor did to AJ with head gear on.

    Ummm, yeah, no ****. did you read the thread title?

    But, certainly that hasn't held Mayweather fans back from pointing out how easily he dominated Canelo, whereas GGG struggled a division North. Well could you imagine what would be happening on here if Mayweather schooled 5 or 6 guys on GGG's resume? I'm merely pointing out the reality, most of Usyk's opponents have done quite well for themselves at HW.

    The number of rounds is very important as well. Usyk is a dynamic boxer, who moves a lot. And to move for 10 rounds is significantly more difficult than to move for 5.
    Smart heavyweights might just target Usyk's body and wait till he gets tired.

    Let's see them hit his body enough to do that kind of damage first.:deal: And Usyk has shown amazing stamina thus far, look at the 12th against Hunter, he threw like 100 punches. A few extra pounds won't have much of a deleterious effect.

    :lol: Kind of a stretch, but then again it isn't.

    Many believe that Usyk has no chance at heavyweight, meanwhile he is beating guys who had success at heavyweight.

    May as well start factoring in sparring sessions to Usyk's HW resume too if this is the level of desperation that the Eastern Euro fanboys and white supremacists have sunk to.
