    The higher up you go in weight the less the difference makes due to percentages. Fighting a guy who’s 20lbs heavier as a welterweight is a lot different to doing it as a 200lb man. Wilder routinely knocks out guys who outweigh him by more than that.

    Briedis already destroyed the WBA regular hw champ. Briedis and Gassiev are easily top ten HW's.

    How? I doubt they would even be top 20 h2h.

    we will soon find out. Gassiev has moved up. Briedis beat Perez who was a top 10 Hw and destroyed Charr, who has a secondary HW belt.

    That has something to do with most of the guys at Heavyweight being disgusting overweight slobs. Hence why the division is the ****tiest in the sport.

    Stiverne made Wilder actually wobble more than Ortiz did.

    Well when Fighter A who's really good beats Fighter B who's really good and wins, that's a boost to Fighter A's resume now isn't it? So when Usyk beats a whole slew of Fighter A's with solid resumes, that's a huge boost to his resume. Got it dingbat?

    The WSB matches are sketchy, not entirely amateur, not fully pro. Let's all them semi-pro. And the two that I added that are amateurs, he fought as a semi-pro.

    I don't agree that Mairis Briedis' KO of Manuel Charr was THAT much more devastating than Povetkin's KO of him. they were about equal. plus Povetkin did it first.... Charr was super washed up by the time Mairis got to him.... the fight was in Chechnya LOLOLOL

    I'm a dingbat? Says the moron who's claiming a guy who never fought at heavyweight has a top 5 resume at heavyweight?

    Wow. I know some boxing fans are deluded, but this takes the cake.
