WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is picking Tyson Fury to dethrone WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder next Saturday. “For Wilder to win he has to knock Fury completely out, and he couldn’t do that the first time. For Fury to win, he can hurt Wilder or out-box him. Fury has more to his arsenal so that’s why I’m leaning to him,” AJ told Sky Sports.

  • GGG is not getting any younger and the clock is ticking. Some fighters can turn old sooner than others. We are so used to seeing GGG blow guys away in the ring a few years back. Once he started getting a few seconds slower in punch output, I immediately think the age is creeping up on him. However, it’s a fair assessment to think that.

  • That Teo can sure hit hard! Should be an interesting fight! GGG, needs to retire or fight one big fight then ride into the sunset. I’m still disappointed in his last fight with Canelo. To me it looked like he gave the fight away.
    AJ’s right about the Fury/Wilder rematch.

    • Arturo,
      GGG is making a lot of money now with his new dazn deal.
      He has 4 more fights over the next 2 years to fulfill his contact.

  • Look, AJ is scared to death of Wilder and therefore he is praying to GOD that Fury can outbox Wilder and win by UD so that he doesn’t have to box Wilder and get K’d the F%&K Out! Unfortunately, WIlder is the boogey-man and it is going to be lights out for Fury on Feb 22!!!!!!!!

    • Nah, Fury is going to school Wilder and this time it will be decisive. Wilder has nothing to offer, he throws the same 1-2 over and over and over. Sure he hits hard, but he can’t box to save his life. Fury is going to box Wilders head off and then Wilder will go back to bum fights while Fury moves on to unify with Joshua.

  • Joshua makes a good point about the Fury – Wilder fight Will be cheering for Fury. I’m Not hating on Wilder, he has done great for himself and I Wish him all the best, but he needs to be grounded a bit. He is to full of himself. Just like Mayweather, McGregor, Broner and others. A man needs to show a little humility. He’s only human.. You never saw Pacquiao, Louis, Marciano, Holyfield or the Klitschko brothers to name a few behave like that when they were on top.

      • So true. He can crack hard but is an aufull boxer and has not learned a thing. Only if a real good boxer can last the whole 12 that’s the problem.

    • He learned shit after the Ortiz fight because if Ortiz would’ve stayed focus in his two fights with Wilder , he would’ve beat him… Wilder is the less skilled HW fighter till Valuev !! And Valuev was better !! Only relies on his punch; if Fury would’ve take a top 5 fighter before the Wilder fight after a long layoff he would’ve beat him by a shutout !!

  • I see a more decisive win for Fury, but I hate his style. Hope Wilder can land some lucky punches to put him away for good. As far as the skills are concerned, though, Wilder looks stiff compared to Fury.
    Hope we get to see many more Lomachenko’s fights. He is the best fighter I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen many great fighters since I became a boxing fan as a kid in the 70’s.
