    He's a great fighter, AND a great heavyweight!

    LMAO another delusional fool. Surprisng how so many boxing fans couldn't see the greatness in Usyks accomplishments at CW and how they might translate at HW. Totally write him off without real reason.

    Sorry, but there's no way in a million years he could beat a superheavyweight like Joshua.

    Well, the reason was that a lot of posters doubted how well he'd do against a bigger man with a good twenty to thirty pounds on him and elite power and skills (or at least above average in those categories). I didn't think he'd beat Joshua, though I thought it'd be by Hearn-town decision rather than a legitimate win for Josh. Didn't really bank of Usyk being that dominant that that wasn't even an option.

    He's now being written off against Fury. Same argument as Joshua, only Joshua's now being downplayed to make the comparison still valid. It isn't, and Usyk would beat Fury if they ever fought. I'm confident enough in my reading of both fighters at this stage to put that out there.

    Replace Joshua with Fury and that's the new line being bandied around.

    Usyk holds the best win of any current HW.
