I'm not sold on guys like Ivanans and Roy. Shelley loses too often, and it hasn't been a great season for Shawn Thornton. Who else is there? Parker? Doesn't fight enough. Cote and Downey? Well, they just aren't good. That's the problem.
What in the world are you talking about? Neither of them have beaten ANYBODY that's ahead of them on my list this season...
Orr has lost lost to McGrattan, Brashear, AND Belak.
And Godard has lost to Laraque, and he's had draws against Boogaard and King.
So who have they beaten that's ahead of them? Nice try...
They only fell about one spot, and that's because guys like King and McGrattan have moved up, and they (King and McGratts) have just been more impressive, IMO. Orr and Godard can be inconsistent.
I definitely think Ivanans has show to be a Top 10 guy. He's had good wins against Lucic and Mcleod, and A great showing against Koci, which I think was a win not a draw.
As for Orr....He has beat Belak once this year, and had a really close fight with him which shouldve been scored a draw. He also had a T2T with Mcgratts, that shouldve been scored a draw as well. That should put him at least in front of Belak as top 6.
And Godard has trashed Boulerice, and had great scraps against Boogard, King, and BGL.
My point is, why do Orr and Godard lose their spots for putting up good fights against top 3-4 HWs, but the top 3-4 never change when they dont beat these guys like they hypothetically should?
