    Default Best heavyweights today.

    We know who are on their last last legs in the heavyweight division..Chisora, Pulev etc.

    We want prime fighting prime.

    AJ
    Wilder
    Whyte
    Parker

    Give me your next x3 heavyweight fights you want to see next and would happily pay money for..

    Out of all the above I would most like to see Fury/Bellew.

    Bellew must keep annoying the Fury camp and make it happen!

    Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder- it has to happen next and it almost has to be a fight with an immediate rematch...these guys are in their primes, they are big, they hit hard, the fans want it, the pundits want it, everyone wants it and even if there's a 1st round KO there should be a rematch just because.


    Jarrell Miller vs Dillian Whyte - Similar size, similar age, a little difference in level of competition but I think it's a great competitive match and certainly one that could be a set up for the winner of AJ vs Wilder.


    Dominic Breazeale vs Otto Wallin - boxer-puncher vs slick southpaw, similar pro experience albeit with different classes of fighters, I think it would be a challenge for both fighters.


    Adam Kownacki vs Andy Ruiz Jr - I'm going to be honest neither of these guys is likely to hold a title but this fight could be a bloodbath just two guys of similar size, similar age, similar style, and they will just rock'em-sock'em robot toe to toe it would be BRILLIANT for FNF.


    Tony Yoka vs Joe Joyce - A rematch of the 2016 Olympic Superheavyweight Final, why not?


    Filip Hrgovic vs Michael Hunter - 2 good young prospects, 6'7 vs 6'2, definite style clash, 5(4 KO)-0-0 vs 14(9 KO)-1-0...only downside I see to Hrgovic right now is that he's a Sauerland fighter which of course means it'll be like 20 years until he has a meaningful fight, he's got pedigree though he was a bronze medalist in 2016

    The division has been awful for years. Wilder vs AJ is the first HW fight in at least a decade that I’ve been really interested in. Any other HW fight right now isn’t interesting really.

    I feel like Ortiz can be thrown in the mix and beat most of the above guys besides the top 2. He’s getting older but gave Wilder a real run for his money.

    I wouldn't mind seeing him in with Povetkin.

    Based on reality , and to be honest after the top 2 , the rest are all as bad as each other! in order , I would say:
    Joshua
    Wilder
    Povetkin
    Parker
    Ortiz
    Whyte
    Brezeale
    Takam
    there are loads of others that I haven't seen enough of that could well be up there, and as for Tyson Fury, he can't be classed anywhere near it based on what we saw last week. When he steps up, he can easily be reconsidered and could go top 3 or 4 , but I really can't see him ever being no.1 . could be wrong.

    I liked this list, merely for not having Fury on it.

    I think Whyte will turn into a real player with victory over Parker. Honestly I'd be pretty happy if Wilder saw fit to fight him as precursor to AJ. How in the hell are B.J Flores and Guillermo Jones ranked in top 10.
