    When Fury beats wilder convincingly and then Joshua he can be then considered the best. He went down twice and punch stats are pretty close. So draw is fair.

    Disagree with those who say Joshua has a better resume, Fury beat the better Wlad, has beat Wilder and a prime Chisora.

    Thats better than Wlad, Whyte and Parker imo

    Anthony Joshua is the best.

    Fury when he's back to his best this coming year will be the clear #2.

    AJ for me. But Fury is there or thereabouts.

    I kind of feel AJ is a good enough boxer (not as good as Fury but far better than Wilder) and has good power (Not as much as Wilder but far more than Fury) to be the best out the 3

    A 100% fit and focused Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world. The question is, will we ever see that Tyson Fury again? Until we do any one of Fury, AJ and Wilder can claim they’re the best

    I'd favor Joshua to beat any HW out there right now.

    With Fury's performance against Wilder it's a 2 horse race between Fury and Joshua. Fury's win and draw vs Wlad and Wilder are arguably better than Joshua's wins over Wlad and Povetkin and Fury's win over prime Chisora is not far off from AJ beating Parker based on how they did vs Whyte. So if you look at their top 3 wins there's not much separating them, but beyond that Joshua's resume is a bit deeper with wins over Whyte, Breazeale and Takam.

    I then think you have Wilder below them and then Povetkin, Whyte and Ortiz below him.

    Very simple, straight to the point, no messing around and in my opinion spot on.

    The punch stats for Rd 10 were 10 blows landed by Fury and only one by Wilder, spanked.

    I think Joshua would steamroll Wilder. Fury and Joshua would be a good fight. I'd lean towards AJ but I don't have much in the way of hard facts to back up why.
