Panel: Who is your all-time favourite cruiserweight and why?


This week's panellists have been requested to call their primary cruiserweight

Linus Udofia (Middleweight contender)

It’s a toss-up between David Haye and Evander Holyfield however I’ve were given to move with the ‘Actual Deal’. He used to be one thing else. I watched him at an overly younger age and took one thing from his taste. He used to be by no means probably the most naturally talented, however simply all the time gritted his tooth when it were given laborious and were given the process carried out. He used to be on every other degree. He epitomised laborious paintings and not giving up.  

Wayne Alexander (Former Eu super-welterweight champion)

It needs to be the ‘Actual Deal’ Evander Holyfield. He received all 3 international championship belts inside of 4 years of turning skilled and by way of the age of simply twenty-five. He had all of it: pace, energy, mixture punching, and a perfect chin.

Dave Allen (Heavyweight contender)

Oleksandr Usyk, David Haye and Evander Holyfield must be the highest 3. I’m an enormous fan of all 3 however, on account of the time I were given into boxing, my favorite would must be Haye.

Dave Coldwell (Best instructor)

If I will’t pick out Tony Bellew, I’ll opt for Oleksandr Usyk. Holyfield used to be the usual bearer and Haye as a cruiserweight had the possible to be improbable and used to be nonetheless superb – although I feel Holyfield would’ve crushed him. I’m an enormous fan of Usyk at cruiserweight and, as it’s extra in my time, I’ll pick out him over Holyfield.
