    Someone said Miller is the best American heavyweight right now, but Wilder and Ruiz are both far better than that untrained cheat, but who is the No.1 American heavy in today`s game?

    I think Ruiz Jr is problably the best when he's somewhat in shape, but otherwise it's probably Wilder, because that rarely happens.

    People think modern heavyweight fighters are too big for classic heavyweights therefore they probably feel Miller is too big for Wilder.

    Wilder and Ruiz are the two best American heavyweights. Don't see anyone else even close

    IMO currently Michael Hunter.

    I'll get a lot of flack but pre-gamma ray scandal, I'd have said Jarrell Miller. Everything he does or will do will now leave a bitter taste in my mouth however.....

    As for the question, I stil think Wilder could take most guys on his night.

    Ruiz, if he could get in shape would be obviously elite.

    Hunter is good but undersized at the elite level

    Tyson Fury

    He is soon to be an honorary American with full citizenship.

    The streets will be lined with American patriots chanting his name, tears rolling off their cheeks as The Gypsy King reigns for 10 years straight.

    Floyd Mayweather will do his weekly pilgrimage to MGM to pay homage to Fury's statue.

    British media and casuals will seethe as all they have left are some stiff beaten bodybuilders

    The year is 2024 and Fury is elected President, John Fury is given security clearance into the country. Crimes rates plummet and peace falls over the united states.

    The big is based on height and reach too, for instance Marciano and his 68-69 reach ain`t going to get past Wilder`s 83 inch reach without getting caught with that right hand and the same goes for Miller who just has a normal reach and no jab to speak of.

    Wilder or Ruiz

    They should fight each other and solve that

    I would back Hunter to beat Wilder, I'd put good money on it if the odds were right, and I could see it going a few different ways against Ruiz.

    I think Hunter is the most talented boxer, I think Wilder has the best accomplishments, and I think Ruiz is more talented than Wilder, and has better accomplishments than Hunter.

    I guess it's what you like, no answer out of those 3 is wrong, but I like Hunter due to his potential.

    Miller is not an acceptable answer, if he wasn't on all of the juices, and weighed 220-240, he wouldn't have even been a contender.

    300lbs of ****house.
