Seriously, can't think of anyone. Maybe Povetkin 2.0 after the Klitschko loss?
Tony Bellow? Probs all of them tbh even the Haye he fought...
LOL! No way.
Yep most of them....and the Haye that Wlad fought would have torn Bellew's head clean off his shoulders
Of his title defences Haye, Byrd, Chagaev, Ibragimov, Pulev, Peter and Povetkin would all beat him, most likely.
I'd favour him against Rahman, Mormeck, Leapai, Wach, Pianeta, Austin, Brock and the second Tony Thompson.
Brewster and Jennings are fifty fifty.
This, based on very little idea how Bellew does at heavyweight. My opinion is open to change.
Povetkin, Byrd, Chagaev, Peter, Sanders, Haye, Pulev, Thompson, Ibragimov, Brewster, Jennings, Chambers, and McCline would crush Bellew. Hands down clear big favorites. I would say the hype and credit being dished out to Bellew is unbelievable, but he is British, so it actually makes a boat load of sense.
Apparently controversial opinion: Bellew probably only beats a couple guys if that in the current HW top 20. And I don't have to explain how negatively I think of the current HW top 20.
Totally agree,just an unkown at the moment but to be fair to Bellew he’s never pretended to be up their with the best at HW.
Personallyhaving picked Bellew to beat Hay both times I’d favour him against a good load around his own size,the guy can Box and since moving up to Cruiser weight/HW he can take a shot as well,he’s also fairly smart in the ring.
No way! Haye, definetly NOT, which Bellew showed TWICE. Thompson, Jennings, McCline or Chambers stand no chance either. The others could be intresting match ups. Bellew is a great fighter.
Sanders knocks the pike out of him
This isn't a serious question is it? At the time Wlad fought them, all of the following would have beaten Stevenson's son.
I agree,I reckon most can’t see this because they think he’s a **** head,fair play he might be a **** but he’s a late bloomer and has shown some craft imo in his last five fights.
Clearly has some power also.
I also picked him against Haye both times, but that was more down to how ring rusty and beaten up Haye's body had become at that point. Against a prime opponent at HW I'd have to be a bit more critical of Bellew's chances. Bellew's quite a quality operator, and I like the way he's adapted to the weight, but he still shows flaws that other fighters could capitalise on, yet also shows the type of calculated risk-taking that could net him wins that he should lose on paper.
I've consistently said that I back him to beat Wilder, and I stick by that prediction. That doesn't mean I think he beats other heavies around that weight, however. Their styles just mesh up very well in Bellew's favour I feel.
-Sanders, Byrd, Mercer, Peter (2005), Chambers, Ibragimov, Thompson, Povetkin, Jennings
not sure about Pulev and Chagaev
He'd beat -
Jennings , HAye , Ibragimov , Peter and Byrd. ... Fat /old James Toney and fat Chambers out boxed Peter so he'd stand zero chance against Bellew.
He loses to Povetkin , Chaggy and Brewster Brewster.
It goes without saying that he'd beat the likes of Austin , Brock , Lepeai , Mormeck etc etc
Axel Schulz probably still ices Bellew today.
