EDDIE HEARN has ranked his top five heavyweight boxers.
And his man Anthony Joshua only comes in third.
The Matchroom promoter couldn't separate his top two.
Although neither of them are AJ.
Hearn, 42, diplomatically listed champions Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury as his joint top two – with Joshua a spot behind as he chatted to The True Geordie.
Next up in fourth is another of his clients Dillian Whyte, who is due a shot at Tyson Fury in the spring.
Deontay Wilder, beaten in an epic by Fury last month, rounds off Hearn's top five.
Despite listing AJ below Fury and Usyk, the matchroom promoter still believes that his man can beat both fighters and become the unified heavyweight champion of the world.

He said: "Tyson Fury I think beats Oleksandr Usyk.
"I do, because of the size, the movement.
"I think it's a great fight, it might not be the most interesting to watch.
"I believe Anthony Joshua can beat them all."
The 32-year-old will have the chance to regain his belts from Usyk in the spring, having triggered his rematch clause.
AJ has recently spent time working with trainers in the US, in a bid to push himself out of his 'comfort zone'.
He has also accepted a stunning offer from Tyson Fury to spar together before the Usyk rematch.
The Gypsy King, meanwhile, has a bout with Whyte on the horizon – after the Body Snatcher bypassed Otto Wallin following a shoulder injury.
