    If Fury beats Usyk/Joshua winner, then I'd consider him the best since Lewis.

    He threw 32, and landed................................1

    I've never seen someone use Audley (or Ruiz) as a name to prop up a resume LOL

    Ibragimov didn't accomplish a lot. He got flattened and failed to actually win his eliminator with Ray Austin and Wlad chose Austin instead. Sultan only made one defense against a guy (Holyfield) who was deemed medically unfit to fight in his own country and Sultan could only outpoint him. His fight with Wlad was so bad that HBO dropped WLAD for not finishing the limited Sultan and boring the pants off everyone.
    :hang

    Anyone hyping Ibragimov is a hipster. No one around then thought he was anything. It's complete revisionism.

    And if you watch him, he WASN'T underrated. Look at the guys who drew with Ray Austin. That's the ACTUAL level of Sultan Ibragimov.

    Against who?

    I watched them all live. I can't think of one that would put him in the top 10 over the last two decades.

    Which means,
    Haye limited an Olympic gold medalist, coming off a Euro title win, to just one punch landed across 3 rounds before stopping him? Impressive feat! LOL

    Imagine if Fury did something like that...
    Yeah, you really nailed Haye on that one LOL

    I'll wreck a muffin top, top it off right in the face.

    Edit: I know it might look like this matches this thread in a way but either the OP was changed or the link to the thread or something is not right because this does not go to this thread. It goes to another thread entirely elsewhere.

    Watch Krasniqi vs Goofi a few months earlier.



    That's why you rate Ibragimov in the top 5 of the last two decades? The Whitaker fight?

    I'd take Krasniqi over Ibragimov, too.

    @Dubblechin Ibragimov had very good technique. He had fast hands and decent power. It was very enjoyable to watch his fights.

    Audley Harrison was old when he fought Haye, and he never was very good. In the Olympics, he was competing against very soft opposition.
