    Has any fighter in recent years cleaned out their division as thoroughly & impressively as Usyk did? Gassiev, Breidis, Glowacki, Huck, Bellew, Hunter, Mchunu etc... that's a quality run.. & more impressive because comparatively speaking he had little pro experience in comparison to some of them too, all fought & beaten within the space of a couple of years & all of them on the road.. no home comforts for Usyk.. his rise & legacy at CW is undoubtedly one of the most impressive stories over recent years.. a shoe in future HOF fighter.

    Ward pretty much did it at SMW years ago (barring say a prime Lucian Bute maybe) but he had to compliment his game with Muay Thai via groping, headbutting & elbowing his opposition & never liked to travel either & was probably pumped full of jungle juice too .. so what are some other examples? Did Bhop clean out 160? Or maybe some examples of fighters on the verge of doing it now too?

    He didn't just clean it out he drove his cleaning van to all his opponent's houses and cleaned them out inside them.

    Not even close. Usyk's already an ATG at CW. I don't think it's crazy to say his resume there was better than Holyfield's.

    To be fair usky is an amazing tallant. Think you would have to drop a nuke on that man to put him on the floor. Not often you see a fighter with his abilities and capable of eating big shots the way he does, when he faces the rare opent that can land on him consistently. Respect where it's due is top shelf for shore

    Glowacki was 26-0
    Breidis 23-0
    Bellew 30-2
    Mchunu 17-2
    Gassiev 26-0
    Hunter 12-0
    Huck 40-4

    In his title fights Usyks oppposition had a combined record of 174 wins & 8 losses if my maths is right. **** a brick..

    Yep. And he's driving his cleaning van round to Chisora's house next month to hopefully clean him out inside it too and should he emerge victorious from that one he's going to drive it round to Joshua Manor to clean out AJ in his house, or if AJ fights Fury he'll be more than happy to drive it round to the house of whomever he fights for the vacant title.

    See him taking del boy to school as chisora lacks the speed to get anywhere near him. As good as he is, still wonder if he might lack a bit power to wobble the top tier going forward after moving up in weight. Doesn't mean he couldn't grind out some points wins, proved his chin is anything but brittle so who knows. Going to be interesting

    Again, the guy averages 70-80 punches a round in big fights, and in some rounds throws 100. He'll stop some guys, just like at cruiser.

    Yh going to stop a few but against the big hitter's as solid as his chin has always been, let's face it going to be a different ball game for him. Don't see anyone tagging him easily, but when he does get caught big difference in power there from cruiser weight. Not taking anything away from his ability, but he is going to feel that at some point

    He is going to clean out Chisora soon.

    Usyk will leave his backside looking like an empty headlock.
