  • I agree with the slight odds. Wilder looked flat in his last outing. Zhang lost but had his moments.

  • Wilder in a “do or die” spotlight in regard to bigger
    and better future opportunities. Wilder’s hand speed can make the difference if he just utilizes it to his advantage. Zhang is a better boxer, but his age is against him. Wilder TKO on a right hand cross.

    • The Wilder fight actually might be a “must see” fight….both are at a crossroads and both are in shape…Everybody writing Wilder off cause of Parker fight… obviously Wilder didn’t bring his best but Parker has been really good beat Wilder and Zhang….Zhang looks in good shape….should be interesting…

      • Yep, that the downside to the modern day “boxing fan.” One loss and they write someone off.

        • One of the reasons I like the UFC so much is losses are put into perspective. A loss is a learning experience – you’ve got stuff to work on and you come back a better fighter.

    • Good enough chance of that happening to take him-Draft Kings has him at +130.

  • If the Zhang of the 2 Joyce fights is there on Saturday Wilder is in serious trouble.

  • Good fight card. I expect some good action as a lot is at stake for many of the fighters, which makes it intriguing. Wilder might be gun shy against elite heavies at this point; a couple of beatings will do that to a fighter, and especially if they have a few million in the bank. That Sheeraz vs Ammo Williams fight might steal the show.

  • Ammo Williams isn’t stealing the show. He may steal somebody’s car, but he ain’t stealing the show. Nick ball and ford is the show stealer. Too close to call, but I will go with ford by split decision.

  • It’s over for Wilder if he loses this fight.

    Ziang ia good enough to win against this version of Wilder, but Wilder has that equalizer that can knock you out cold.

  • Ammo Williams stole somebody’s car before? I did know that. I was referring to the act of combat between two young and powerful middleweights that may produce fireworks.

    • No shite Sherlock. Read it again. He may? I thought you said you were a teacher, disturbed DMV?

  • Wilder is one of those loudmouth schmucks I’d love to see sent into retirement.

    • Wilder is not even a loud mouth! He just talks like the other guys talk to sell the fight. Bet you like fury’s loud mouth just fine though

  • I’m a little surprised Hrgovic is as big a favorite as he is. I think he’ll win, but I’m not as confident as the odds. Dubois is almost a value bet.

  • PPV price on my cable guide for Zhang – Wilder fightcard says $39.99 , I have Cox cable. Have the promoters dropped the PPV price for the fight.
