    Wilder KOs Ortiz in the 10th. Assuming Joshua takes Parker on the 31st, we could be in line for a Unification fight. Still think Joshua takes that fight against Wilder if/when it happens, but Wilder showed he can take a punch from Ortiz, and Ortiz hits HARD.

    Wilder is a freaking super saiyan when it comes to power. He's nuts. AJ v Wilder should be fun.

    I do wonder how power-wise he measures up against AJ.
    No accuracy with his full power shots though, you could see it in the 10th against Ortiz. He was just swinging WILDLY and hoping to land something. And Ortiz doesn't have a neck to actually move his head, so I expect Joshua to fair at least a bit better in that regard. Lol

    But ya, gotta wait for AJ vs Parker first though, which should also be a slobber knocker.

    Wilder is stronger, I guess. You can't teach that kind of power. He's really strong.

    You think so? Doesn't do much good if it doesn't hit the target. AJs got some lbs on Wilder, and I would say is a slightly more technical fighter, which is not saying much, as Wilder is ugly to watch.

    I didn't even realize but their rematch is less than 3 months away... nuts. Super disappointing. Without knowing a single fact, I blame De La Hoya.. Canelo is too innocent to have done this ... this is what I choose to believe until given information otherwise. Haha

    I believe it ... only because I want to. Lol

    Edit:
    He believes the traces of Clenbuterol are "consistent with meat contamination that has impacted dozens of athletes in Mexico over the last years."

    Canelo says he will immediately move his training camp from Mexico to the United States and will submit to any number and variety of additional tests that the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association deems necessary ahead of the fight.

    "I am an athlete who respects the sport and this surprises me and bothers me because it had never happened to me," Canelo says.

    "I will submit to all the tests that require me to clarify this embarrassing situation and I trust that at the end the truth will prevail."

    Referee ruined the fight. AJ's stamina is A+. Great performance behind the jab.

    I really don't think the ref was as egregious as it's being made out to be. For the most part AJ had a good plan that "if Parker came inside, tie him up and get broken apart, land a few jabs, rinse and repeat" and he executed it to perfection. Doesn't make for exciting boxing, but it's a sound strategy to a win belt. There was really only 2 or 3 times that the ref could have let them throw a few more before they inevitably clinched again, but at least the Judges did their job.

    All in all though, solid win for AJ. I think he wanted to prove he could do 12 Rounds as well, as there was no killer-instinct like we've seen from him in the past.

    Well Fury is officially back. Heavyweight Boxing is back where it should be almost I'd say as well.
    Got some real contenders and some real Champions. Can't wait to see some of these fights.

    Reasonable. Can still get that rematch by next year.

    Not just one Joshua-Wilder fight, but TWO? Oh goodness, this makes me so happy.

    For negotiations between the two teams have included the possibility of a first fight taking place in London in September before a Las Vegas re-match in December.
