    I'm a Joshua/Fury/Wardley/Joyce/Chisora/Whyte fan and I'm fully on board with McCall, on his night would trouble ALL OF THEM and beat a good few aswell.

    The Atomic Bull was nigh on indestructible, had decent fundamentals and could dig a bit. It was McCalls mental fragility that stunted his career and kurbed his potential, nothing wrong with his boxing. He could most definately beat AJ. I'd favour Joshua but, he would absolutely have to be on point similar to his last two performances for the full 12.

    Doubt it. It would be a battle of jabs for the first half. He’d have a better chance at knocking out Fury cold in 1-4 than AJ because of Fury’s ****iness during fights and lack of offensive punching power.

    AJ gets far too much stick, mainly because he was marketed as a Zeus of boxing which he clearly is not.

    However AJ at his best is dangerous for any man he shares a ring with without doubt.

    On that note, many fighters from the past would beat him. No shame in that either.

    You think Joshua at his best beats Lewis at his best ? They all can lose, but let’s judge them at their best performance, you think AJ’s in with a shout ??

    I’d make AJ a live underdog. He has the power and skills to be at the least be competitive with any fighter in history. How does Fury fair against Lennox?

    Fury vs Lewis ? Just a repeat of Lewis vs Akinwande. Fury will be clinching for dear life everytime Lewis starts throwing hands. Lewis by disqualification

    Joshua seems more of an accumulation puncher

    Riddick Bowe, Ray Mercer, and even old Foreman walk through his punches and knock him out in turn.

    AJ has power, offensive skill, and speed to stop any heavyweight in history.

    Down to styles, Joshua is not competitive with a young Mike Tyson at all, and I don’t see him really amongst any of the past fighters. A good fighter but limited. With regards to Fury v Lewis, I have Lewis as h2h no1 all time on form. I think he stops Fury out of nowhere in a cagey affair. Joshua is getting the same treatment but earlier

    AJ is far better than Grant was and Vitlali was leading his fight v Lewis 4-2 rounds when the fight was stoppe on a cut, Lewis only got on top in that bout after cutting Vitali, nothing to do with uppercuts, Lewis looked awful in that bout.

    No Ali`s chin could have taken AJ`s power, Shavers had more one punch KO`s than AJ has.

    Fury would have boxed McCall`s ears off.

    Foreman struggled with Stewart and AJ is far better than Stewart was, Bowe couldn`t have walked through AJ`s shots and never had to take that kind of power, I don`t think the shots Golota caught Bowe with were as powerful as AJ`s and AJ isn`t as easy to hit as Bowe was v Golota, Mercer was very easy to hit also.

    Fury went toe to toe with Wilder and revored from being out cold he is far better than Akinwande was.
