    I don't think it's a hot take at all lol. What I saw Saturday night was special. He demolished another top pound for pound fighter who's in the prime of his career. He made Spence looked like an amateur.
    Spence might be done.
    Something is going on with him. He looked stoned the entire fight.

    That's a hot take for sure. Lol But ya he looked good. He looked BIG. Too bad he's such a door knob when it comes to promotion.

    How about Crawford the other night? that version of Crawford beats prime Floyd Mayweather Jr. in my opinion.

    They don't call him the Monster for nothing! Reminds me of Pacquaio.

    An absolute legend!
    I know a lot of people think Muhammad Alli is the best boxer in the world, but for me the best is Mike Tyson
    Ali just had a lot of charisma on top of his results, and a lot more people were watching him back in the day. On the raw boxing abilities Mike completely overcomes him, I agree! Feeling like rewatching some of the Mike's post prison matches, he was an absolute monster back then(probably going to after the trip to the store, gotta get some new hunting gear before season and it's on sale rn).

    Ya, my buddy loves Tank, but I'm a big Ryan Garcia fan. Garcia is too smooth. Agreed.
    The problem that I have with Tank is he's 28 and has not fought a top 5 fighter in his division. It feels like Mayweather's protecting him. I watched his last 3 fights, and all three guys - Barrios, Cruz, Rolly(all terrible) were all outboxing him before they got knocked out. What if they put him against a killer like Haney or Loma or Shakur or a guy with power like Lopez or Garcia?

    I think Davis is a little overhyped.

    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.

    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.

    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.
