    I think it's clear all three top heavyweights are at a stage where they want to fight each other and cement their status as no.1 once and for all. Any stumbling blocks here will emanate from promoters, which is usually the case.

    Parker & Ortiz aren't on the same level at all for me. Parker is average at best

    Self belief? I think not or he would of forced his team to start making competitive fights earlier. The banked on Ortiz being old and it nearly back fired. They banked on Fury being totally done and cashing out and it did backfire. The dodgy draw they got has just made him look more of a coddled champ than ever.

    Fair point. I still think Wilder does have self belief and is just a naturally confident guy. He probably does believe he can knock anybody out, well did until Big Fury rose from the ashes. Maybe it was his team that had less confidence in him and Wilder believed everything they fed him telling him everybody was avoiding him.

    Wilders last two opponents combined are a better quality than Joshuas best two opponents.

    Better judge of distance, harder puncher, puts combinations together better and higher ring IQ I would say. Parker is alright but that's about it.

    Clear as mud.
    2 of the three have just fought each other. The other one asked for $50m, tweeted "Let's Roll" and then waddled away.

    Wilder thought fury was finished that's why he took that fight.

    Am the only one on this forum that does not get the Ortiz obsession. His best wins are Malik scott, Dave Allen and Jennings. Never beat a top 10 guy. Just don't rate him like everyone else on here does.
