    First things first, never thought Usyk would fight AJ before Fury or Wilder. Blew my mind. Let alone twice. I love Usyk as the Heavyfight Champ though! Just as much as AJ really.

    That said, yes, I still think AJ beats Wilder. Really want to see that fight though. Obviously I feel about AJ like you did about Wilder after his beatings. I'm disappointed, but still think he bounces back. His next fight will be key. He needs a tune up like Wilder just got. Some bum that he can clown out of the ring in a round.

    Fury vs Usyk is really tough for me. Fury is so much bigger, but Usyk is just so calm and such a stone cold killer.

    AJ vs Wilder will sell better than Fury vs Usyk is my bet as well.
    I don't know, the more I watch Joshua fight, the more i'm convince that Wilder would knock him out cold. All Wilder need to do is land one shot. That's it. Did you watch Fury/Wilder 3? Fury dominated that fight from the very beginning BUT Wilder still knocked him down twice lol. If that was AJ, would he be able to get up?

    I think Wilder beats Usyk too. But yeah I agree AJ vs Wilder will sell better than Fury vs Usyk. That is really the one fight that I want to see along with Ryan Garcia vs Tank Davis. Unpopular opinion but I think Ryan beats Davis.

    It's been a couple of years since I commented in this forum. What do you think Joey you still think AJ can beat my guy Wilder? would AJ even take that fight especially after what Wilder did last night?

    Hell yeah! What a fun spectacle. Apparently Nate Robinson of NBA quasi-fame is fighting some YouTube guy I;ve never heard of (Jake Paul? Whoever he is) on the undercard? Sounds like it will be crazy.

    Do fight fans on here think it will break 1 million PPV buys? 2 million?
    I've read those YouTube cards actually sold pretty well, so if they've got one of those guys (no idea if he's the important one or not), and no idea if they're any good, but might be able to sell this one into the million-ish for sure.

    As for who do I got? Tyson is apparently the early betting favourite, but I think Roy Jones will still have some of that bounce in his step to dance around the older Tyson. My heart wants Tyson to win, but I'm taking Jones.

    Wilder is blaming ... wait for it ... waaaait for it ... HIS PRE-FIGHT COSTUME/ARMOR ... Yep ... said it was like 40lbs, and thus, he had no legs by the 3rd round ... yep ... man, right when I was ready to be a Wilder fan. Lol

    Ya, I think all of those 3 need to fight each other. It's only right for the fans.
    I think one thing that people may be forgetting is that Joshua is naturally a much bigger fighter than Wilder. Wilder weighed his heaviest, coming in at 230. Joshua fought Tacam at 250lbs, and was still shredded. And he fights alot better on his heels than Wilder as well. Should be a great fight. Hopefully Wilder doesn't pick up his rematch clause. Lol

    Obviously, Fury vs Joshua is now "the fight". But I still want to see Wilder vs Joshua.

    How Wilder even got up in the third round is inexplicable let alone fight for four more rounds.

    Anyway, I want Fury-Joshua at Wembley Stadium for all the belts. Then the trilogy fight. Bring back big time boxing.
    AJ was selling 90,000 tickets while fighting bums ... imagine what him and Fury does? Will definitely break box office records I think. Can't wait. AJ and Hearn are already calling for the fight to happen.

    Man leave me alone.
    Hahaha, hey man, like I said, Deontay gained a fan last night in his defeat. As soon as I saw his ear bleeding, I knew it was over ... and it basically was, but fucking Wilder hung around for another 3 god damn rounds just taking punch after punch. His corner did the right thing. He'll get his rematch, and we'll see how much the ear injury truly impacted his performance. I had him losing up until the ear shot, but never know with Wilder. Even when was wobblin' around in there, I was still worried he'd land just a single impact blow and take Fury out of his boots.
