    He looked kinda Canelo-esque against Breazzele.. Dom was poor but the sharp shooting with precise precision was impressive

    He executed a tactical gameplan and displayed a good ring IQ against Povetkin.

    I think AJ could be developing a very good ring IQ on the level of Froch and Tony Bellew

    He doesn't have any dominant wins over top opposition. This vulnerability is part of the reason he's a box office draw. This is definitely the reason Tyson Fury is justly rated above him.

    You didn’t think Fury looked a little vulnerable picking himself up off the deck a couple of times against Wilder?

    Fury has two wins over top opposition in which he looked completely in control for the entirety of the fight.

    Joshua has none.

    It's a huge distinction.

    His true great legacy defining fight and best performances was Wlad

    He would need to best a Wilder or Fury to beat that. In impressive fashion (and it would have to be)

    Although he has beaten three other champions in Martin, Parker and Ruiz 2 those are tier 2 in terms of level of opponent.

    Since Ruiz 1 he’s aware of his limitations an fights accordingly, worried!

    Its probably Pulev isn't it. Whyte and Wlad rocked him. Ruiz stopped him. His wins over Parker, Ruiz, Takem etc. were effective but incredibly boring.

    Pulev is the only decent guy he's fought who lost virtually every round AND got brutally stopped. I guess you could say Brezeale too but i don't rate him at all.

    I do give him respect, he would be the dominant heavyweight of this era if Fury wasn't here. Fury is very special though. Once in a lifetime type fighter.

    An AJ comes around every 10 years.
