    For me its Beterbiev. I have him as the best LHW of the past 30 years H2H. Though most people here would disagree and say hes too crude. But it is what it is.

    Go ahead and post.

    Audley A force Harrison gets a lot of stick but he’s a world class operator who has just been dreadfully unlucky.

    Wladimir Klitschko is easily, easily a top 3 HW for me and I see no actual reason anybody should put him outside of the top 5.

    I feel that in his short lived prime, Anthony Mundine could have been the best super middlewight in the world. He gets bagged a lot, maybe because he comes across as a dickhead and his jaw was suspect at best. However I really feel that if he had got the right fights at the right time he would have left a much greater legacy. He was shockingly bad towards the end, no doubt.
    I also think Vitali doesn't really doesn't get his dues, Golovkin get's dissed way too much as does Loma and that Beterbiev could have been anything without the baggage that has stalled his career.

    Beterbiev is another of those guys that should have started 5 years earlier. And I'd agree with you, he's a wrecking ball. He's not crude; he looks kind of unpolished from how he throws his punches. I'd argue that he's got a somewhat unique style, and that his short trip-hammer looping punches are powerful while retaining his balance. I'd have loved to have seen a prime Kovalev vs Beterbiev. Kovalev with Beterbiev's focus would have been terrifying to face.

    Yes sorry I forgot to specify PRIME A-Force. Not the later version that was mentally drained from years of bad luck.

    Inoue is by and far the most skilled fighter in the game. And he hits harder than Beterbiev P4P.

    Loma is light years more skillful than anyone else in the game. The gap between him and the rest of the pack in that regard is frankly embarrassing, so much so that with the exception of two or three other fighters, Inoue being one of them, it's pointless watching anyone else's HL reels unless they're demonstrations of their punching power. You think you're going to see any magic or wow moments watching the HL reels of straight up 'n down, no special effects meat and potatoes fighters like Danny Garcia, Spence, Fedor Chudinov, Fat Andy and Jermallo? I'd rather watch eggs boiling on the stove all day than waste my time doing that.
