    This is what I don't get the most. Ortiz is relatively skilled puncher, but he's also slow, he didn't have high workrate, his defense wasn't anything special and his power is overrated as hell.

    I can understand why people overrate fighters who look good on the tape, but Ortiz? He's nobody in historical sense.

    As I remember it, while Jennings had a style and intent to disrupt Wlad a bit, as well as have a few moments of success (which highlighted how formularized Wlad had become over the years) I thought Wlad looked better than Ortiz in beating him. Ironically, it was Ortiz having the run of things on the inside against Jennings, which led to the latter's demise. Had Wlad possessed just a modicum of an inside game, he'd have most likely dispatched Jennings in short order.

    The stoppage wins for Ortiz and Rivas look better on paper but, save for that fact, I didn't think they were separating themselves from Jennings in any big way. Jennings was Joyce's tenth pro outing and I think the first time he had gone 12 rounds. I'm not all that concerned if it looked a modest performance.

    All in all, you can bundle Ortiz in with Jennings, Szpilka, Perez, Rivas. There's not a massive gap between any of them, in my opinion.

    fighting Fury must be very physically exhausting if a man that is 6-7 is having problems. I think a young Ali could do and perhaps Larry Holmes but not Mike Tyson. Forget Frazier and Marciano

    I thought Joe Louis had 48 fights against top rated men?

    I think that I am right in saying 31 who were in the top ten when the fight happened, and 51 who had been in the top ten at some point.

    If I am not, then it is as near as damn it!

    One observation.

    If Tyson Fury had never been born, and a novelist had proposed him as a fictional champion/contender, I would have dismissed him as being implausible!

    Unbeatable, indestructible, iron chin, iron will, strong as a gorilla, fast as Amir Khan, hits harder than Wladimir Klitschko, infighting like Riddick Bowe, head movement of Muhammad Ali, Boxing iq of 400.

    Nobody beats Fury
