People mentioning Cotto, Judah, Maidana, Berto, Bika don't even know what a gatekeeper is and they need to stop. If these guys are gatekeepers then the only good fighters are top 3 fighters of a weight class, and that is just so ridiculously false that it's not even funny and I have to question every single person's knowledge of boxing in this thread. You mention lower tier top 10 fighters and call them gatekeepers, we already have a problem in boxing then...mentioning top 5 fighters of a weight class and calling them gatekeepers, go watch another sport, please.
Ring has Bika ranked at #8, but I personally don't hold him in such a high regard. He's 33 years old, suffers from inactivity, has losses to Ward/Bute/Calzaghe, and barely receives any promotion. His next fight is against somebody I've never heard of (Sjekloca) in February. Granted, it's for the interim WBC belt, but he already lost to Ward already. Bika is a rough and rugged opponent that can take guys out of their element. If you can't beat Bika, you're not a top 10 SMW imho.
