The gap between Carl, 898 points, & 2nd, 3rd or 4th (David Haye 562, Kell Brook 544, Rocky Burns 518) is pretty much the same as the gap between 4th place & the 20th/25th ranked fighters (e.g. Darren Hamilton 205).
Obviously rating fighters is pretty subjective but this huge difference between 1st & 2nd blew me away.
Those are objective computer-generated ratings.
They are largely based on the rankings of who they've fought.
Haye hasn't beaten a current top 15 heavyweight. Brook hasn't beaten any of the the best in his division.
