The debate has been underway about who really is the best heavyweight boxer in the world for some time now.

The three main names in the running most people would agree upon whom represent the top three are:

Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

So far we’ve seen Fury and Wilder battle to a draw but until all of them fight on another and one becomes undisputed heavyweight champion, the debate will rage on.

Bernard Hopkins, former middleweight number one and now partner of Golden Boy Promotions, believes Joshua is the main man:

“But the heavyweight division to me when the fight happens among all parties (Fury, Wilder and Joshua) is Joshua. I think Joshua is the most fundamentally sound, most athletic out of all the heavyweights out there.”

Joshua as things stand is still looking for an opponent next up on April 13th while Wilder and Fury are locked in negotiations for a potential rematch either in New York or Las Vegas next year, most likely.
