I've been waiting for this.

Murray, who lost to a world class fighter, up 19 places. Chisora, who had lost to a world class fighter, was down at 30. What was the difference? Also, how come Del has moved up so much after a win over a journeymen?

Clev outclassed Krasniqi, Fury struggled badly with USS, but both had changed position. How come?

The lack of Billy Joe Saunders still saddens me
Nick Blackwell is one of the best prospects in the country, BJS's win over him is very impressive, as is his shutout win over Matt Hall.

I'm still be sure how it works either. Murray proved he could mix it a world level, but ultimately lost. Chisora, when he fought Vitali, did the same

Cunningham is a world class cruiser weight who was on the verge of stopping Tyson, who looked plan awful for 5 rounds. I don't think stopping him should get Fury that much props. But it was a good win
Nick Blackwell is 100% a prospect. He was thrown to the lions against Murray when he clearly wasn't ready for it
He has shown he can compete at a high level in those fights.
But not higher than Brian Rose, Lee Haskins and Lee Selby?

Also, what has Rendall Munroe done in the last 2 and a half years to warren a place above Billy Joe? Surely Saunders' win over Hall and Blackwell are better than a shutout KO defeat to Quigg and beating two journeymen?
Adamek isn't a top 10 HW.
What's your heavyweight top 10 then?
In no particular order I'd have:

Wlad, Vitali, Haye, Povetkin, Pukev, Fury, Thompson, Banks, Stiverne, Helenius and Solis all above Adamek, who has likely lost 3 of his last 5 fights
Well, Adamek features higher in the consensus rankings.
Even tho Adamek likely lost to Arreola, Cunningham and Chambers, lost every round convincingly to Vitali before being stopped, and was on the verge of being taken out by Travis Walker in the first round of their fight? Not a top 10'er in my opinion
