    Default Post your top ten heavyweights

    1. Tyson Fury
    2. Anthony Joshua
    3. Oleksandr Usyk (but he better do something soon)
    4. Dillian Whyte
    5. Andy Ruiz Jr
    6. Deontay Wilder (his loss was more decisive than Ruiz, who wasn't stopped)
    7. Alexander Povetkin
    8. Michael Hunter
    9. Joseph Parker
    10. Daniel Dubois or Filip Hrgovic

    If Dubois beats Joyce, he'll be ahead of Hrgovic (who is fighting someone not as good as Joyce).

    I'd go

    1. Fury
    2. Joshua
    3. Wilder
    4. Whyte

    Then whoever you like. No issue with Fury at 1. Now that he's beaten Wilder convincingly twice, he's rightfully top dog and even without AJ coming a cropper against Ruiz he'd still probably be consensus number 1. Joshua or Wilder at 2. Probably most will have Joshua leapfrog Wilder into second. Although I always find it a bit rough on a beaten fighter to plummet down the rankings. Fury Wilder 2 was the right to be top dog among most. Wilder is or should literally be 2nd best. But again I appreciate that the beaten man takes a hit. Of the following pack Whyte has the best claim and the best record. Usyk we all think will wipe the floor with most until he runs into the top three then we'll see what's what. Until then his exploits at Cruiser earn him a spot from 5 - 10 wherever you like.

    Fury
    Joshua
    Wilder
    Whyte
    Ruiz

    A prime Fury has no trouble with any of the other 4 either.

    None of the other current crop matter in my opinion

    ** still undecided re Usyk, he needs to convince he can challenge at this weight.

    Not putting in Ortiz into your lists is ridiculous. Especially when someone like Povetkin is in there along with up and comers who haven’t been tested at all.

    For a couple of years I considered Anthony Joshua to be the best heavyweight.

    But after his masterful performance against Deontay Wilder, I consider Tyson Fury to be #1 and Joshua #2.

    There's at least 10 good, undefeated heavyweights coming up.

    The best of them from what I've seen are Hrgovic and Dubois.

    Joyce, Romanov, Sanchez, Milas and Yoka are some of the others.

    I got my eyes on Tony Yoka. That man stepped up beating Dave allen and Dimitrenko in just 5 pro fights.
