    AFAIK beating higher ranked HW's should place you above ur competitors. AJ has 1 against higher ranked HW's, so should be ranked about Wilder. TMS?

    Neither AJ nor Wilder have done anything to write home about. Maybe, if AJ beats Klitschko he'd deserve to be ranked above Wilder. Personally, I think AJ is the superior boxer to Wilder but neither has accomplished much of anything to prove which of them is better yet.

    You've got to remember though, with Wilder being 6'7" and having to punch downwards, the power and velocity of his punches are aided by gravity.

    Lol, I read that comment by James Galvatron too. This new rule of physics is why I now wear an anti-gravity suit when going downstairs....

    The best part about it though he self portrays himself as some kind ultimate authority of the noble art, when infact he's absolutely clueless.

    Maybe???? Did you really write "maybe"????????
    Wilder has beaten dozens of part-time bouncers and janitors as well as shot fringe contenters like Lyakhovich or decent but limited opponents like Sziplka or Duhaups.His best scalp is probably Stiverne.
    If.............AJ beats Klitschko he for sure deserves to be ranked above Wilder.............by light years,,mate.Even now he deserves to be ranked higher than Wilder as the Brit has fought the better opposition IMO.The difference is that Wilder has beaten twice the number of opponents in order to reach the level where AJ is+he has always fought in his backyard where all the odds are stacked the opponent.
    Pah! Joshua goes for the golden throne of glory and fame whereas the American is happy to stay home and fight seclected opposition he is sure to beat.

    Wilder's resume is a little better since he has Ws vrs Scott and Stiverne.

    That said, I see Joshua as the h2h #1 and he will soon be rated #1 should he get past Klitschko.
