If my short-term memory is holding up between my visits to the previous pages of this thread it looks as if Usyk has replaced Pulev and that's the only change since Povetkin KOd Whyte, of course Usyk also has beaten Chisora since then. In my last top 10 Pulev wasn't at the bottom so he'll retain a spot in mine though of course the loss will have him slip down a bit. So going into 2021 I got something like this

T. FURY
Joshua
Wilder
Povetkin
Ruiz Jr
Whyte
Parker
Hunter
Pulev
Ortiz

I will be honest, it's tricky because so many heavyweights have been inactive even before the pandemic.


1 - 3 was easy.

Povetkin probably should be at 4 for the Whyte victory.


I think you could probably shuffle 5 - 9 around in any order you like.

Joyce deserves to squeak in at 10 ahead of Hrgovic, Ortiz, Ortiz, and Pulev for me.

Povetkin and Whyte over Ruiz?
Yeah, great win over Joshua, but it was 18 months ago.

Since that time he has gotten immensely fat and had one loss where he looked terrible.

If he fights someone decent soon I would maybe bump him up. If he doesn't then I will probably bump him down.

Yeah, I think if you were to have a logical points system - this is probably how it goes.

I think Hrgovic is better than Joyce, but he has nothing of note to prove it. Usyk earns his place after pointing Chisora. Povetkin earned his place to be head of the chasing pack imo.
