  1. Yes, now after WBSS finals.

    61.9%
  2. Yes and he already was.

    8.2%
  3. No, but if he stayed longer at CW he'd be within a couple of realistic wins.

    15.5%
  4. No, and there's no available competition to make him the #1.

    How does he compare to others like Adamek, Haye, Bell, Holyfield and Nelson?

    I think he's the best ever at Cruiserweight.

    I don't know about that.. Holyfield to me still stands as the best ever at CW while Usyk has stamped his spot as the number 2 CW All time.

    IDK, we'll see how successful he is at HW. I know this is about CW but if you can move up and be just as good ala Evander that kinda gives more credence to your accomplishments at cruiser weight.

    For one, I think he'll be a very good heavyweight. I think he would give Wilder fits.

    His only competitor for the number 1 spot All Time is Evander Holyfield who I think h2h would beat Usyk imo.

    One thing I'm sure of that Usyk would've dominated any version of David Haye (CW or HW)

    I'd say yes, but can understand those who think it's still Holyfield.
