    Whats wrong with Ike? Thats a solid win.

    He was wet behind the ears green green when he also fought tooth n nail with Winky Wright and got a controversial win there.

    While being completely shot he also beat a Castillo that had just stopped Sturm.


    Ok fine ya he probably deserves to be listed here. :lol: Good call but still Ike was a solid fighter. The Ike Vargas beat would have been a major player in the Cotto/Judah/Mosley/Clottey/Margarito era.

    Lucian Bute spent a full career without beating someone of note. The best name in his list of victims is possibly Glen Johnson, who was really old and alredy had 15 losses.

    Good call.
    Great effort from Del at different times of his career though, with both V Klitschko & Usyk

    good thread.
    this'll really expose the 'milk a belt' champions and those who were just found wanting in big fights.

    felix sturm - top of my list.

    considering the age and stage of their careers when he fought chavez and whittaker, oscar actually comes into consideration for this list.
    controversial, maybe, but if the glove fits...

    Why? Haye was well known after his fight vs Valuev. Valuev was 7 ft 332 lbs gigant, Haye was 217 lbs.

    Looks that Klitschkos just doesn't likes you.
    I agree that Wlad style in a lot of his fight was boring to watch but to tell that he didn't had notable fights is too much.
    I also noticed that if for someone doesn't likes one from Klits, then usually he is posting that both of them were not good etc.
    Wlad and Vitali had different fighting styles.
