    I smell business and greased palms in so much of this. I imagine rich fat old men trading expensive cigars for tie breakers.
    It makes me sad that my absolute favorite sport has so much scum involved in it. Just sad.

      I'm not a big fan of AJ but Fury should never have been ranked above him for only beating Wilder twice and Dillon Whyte the last 7 years. Oh a Derek Chisora for a 3rd time.

      That's literally fraud Fury's best wins in recent years. Wilder got exposed brutally by Zhilei Zhang and Parker.

      In the same time AJ has beaten Ruiz, Parker, Whyte, Pulev, Povetkin etc.

        In the same time AJ took THREE losses including a KO loss to a pudgy Ruiz.

        The issue is not the attributes of AJ or Fury, it’s the nonsensical reasoning the belt organizations have.

          But he avenged that loss and his other two losses were decision losses to the undisputed champ Usyk, who was unlucky not to get a stoppage win over Fury in the 9th round.

          Rightly or wrongly, their reasoning probably goes that AJ has more convincing victories over common opponents in recent times (ie Wallin and Ngannou), and AJ also isn’t coming off a loss. Additionally, given Fury’s more apparent vulnerability of late in getting knocked down multiple times, bookmakers odds on the outcome of a Fury-AJ fight have changed considerably. And as already mentioned, those wins over Wilder have lost their shine given Wilder’s abject performances since (think Calzaghe’s win over then IBF champ Lacy, who was badged as the super-middle Mike Tyson).

          At the end of the day, nobody can definitively say which current version of AJ and Fury should be ranked above the other until they fight each other or if Fury avenges his loss against Usyk. Arguments can be made either way, so arguing that having AJ over Fury is corrupt and/or nonsensical means you’re either ignorant, biased, insincere or any combination of the three.

            Why sure.

            It has long been known that with Los Banditos, ratings are not a means of determining the best fighters, to use as a tool to determine logical challenger order.
            For them, they instead develop their ratings as a tool used for the justification of title shots for fighters with whom they have existing arrangements.

            Backburnering Fury doesn't hurt him any, leading into his rematch for the real/linial crown.
            But it does begin the process for profitable refragmentation.

            This is nothing new.​

              Fury and AJ are,going to wait until nobody cares to see it to fight. I'm there now. That fight doesn't matter to me one bit.

                  AJ was exposed by Ruiz and is not that good. Usyk proved that if you put pressure on Fury using above average footwork, Fury doesn’t have stamina after 6-8 rounds. Fury trains to fight whereas great fighters fight to train. Usyk should have no problem getting a KO against Fury in the rematch. Fury doesn’t take care of his body and has a very dysfunctional home life. Fury’s done. AJ is just looking to pick up the crumbs Usyk leaves for him.

                    AJ above Fury, no big deal. Just might make Usyk prefer to not fight Fury as Fury below Josh in pecking order. But if Fury beats Usyk then Fury will be no1 so no problem Fury being below Josh now.
                    Fury did so poorly against Francis what do you expect?
