    I think Usyk will be very competitive with the top 3 at HW.

    Actually, the moment one of Loma's wins in the WSB do something impressive as a pro.

    Onto the list they go.:deal:

    That's the same feeling I get any time I read anything you post.

    No, but they are on the level of most of AJ, Wilder and Fury's opponents. Hence why I only have Usyk Top 5. As of right now, his resume is slightly behind theirs at HW, based on Hunter, Bellew and Joyce alone.. Quite frankly his wins as a pro are more impressive than anything Wilder has accomplished, and aside from Wlad, almost on par with AJ and Furys.

    Haha, we're not talking about P4P. We're talking about Usyk's resume at HW.

    I added something as you were quoting that to clarify, I was only referring to his opponents that have fought at HW.

    He doesn't have one yet. The point CST was making is that in the amateurs, WSB and pros Usyk has defeated guys that have been successful at the weight (in all three).

    I know he doesn't and no one with a clue believes he does either but the OP of this thread believes Usyk already has a top 5 HW resume and thus the debate.

    No, he was making a point, which apparently went over your head.

    Thank you. Any of them would stand a decent chance to grab a belt, too, despite giving up plenty of size against these super heavy goombahs. Wilder and Joshua both have suspect chins and full-power blasts from either Gassiev or Briedis (and probably Glowka) would be plenty to level either, and with their stiffness of stance and defensive lapses that certainly isn't outta the question... as for Tyson Fury, his quickness & slickness advantage relative to his division flies out the window against these guys, and once again they can put his lights out.
