    Not even Russell is saying he dropped him. I remember him being asked about it and he said that it 'could have' been a knockdown but it wasn't. That applies to every trip or slip during which a punch lands.

    At least Russell is honest about it and never has afaik tried to dispute the result.

    Crawford is extremely talented, but he simply does not have the names on his resume.

    Love him or hate him, Canelo is the clear p4p. His resume is just too deep. Loma is top 3, no doubt.

    Can't really debate that seeing as he beat former P4P king Deontay Wilder.

    Crawford is a Top Rank/HBO hype job. He never did a thing to earn his place as the best and has done nothing to defend it either.

    Canelo has the best resume but I’d have loma at no1 because:

    -he’s not a PED cheat
    -There no controversy over any of his wins. There’s no fckin way should the first golovkin fight have been a draw. Canelo got a draw due to favourable judging

    May top 3 would be loma, usyk and Canelo. Not necessarily in that order though

    If we count together amateur and pro fights, then Loma's resume is even better than Usyk resume.
    Yes, there might be told that ammy doesn't count, pro is for true gods etc.
    At top level these amateurs or " amateurs " does have handling that average medium level pro never saw in his life. No one provide this unless one is really good and highly talented.
