He is jacked in a Holyfield-sorta-way. I'd like to see how he does against Dillian Whyte first. Not that I think Whyte is all that good, just that I think he may actually land a punch (which can't be said about Joshua's previous fighters). Wilder has been stepping up his challenges (specifically Stiverne followed by a couple of guys with great chins). Ultimately, it will never happen, but I'd like to see Wilder and Joshua face each other now while they are both raw.

Wlad looked toast (he is almost 40). Fury dominated that fight.

When they both punched themselves out in the 5th, I thought we were going to get a Rocky 2 moment.

This is the perfect thread for the message board that already has everything.

Boxing died with Evander Holyfield's ear.

No shit. The championships are meaningless but it is still entertaining.

It's true for the heavyweight division, though I'd say that's more on Lewis and Klitchko brothers refusing to fight. The lower weight divisions have ranged from mediocre to legendary over that time period.

Wilder and Joshua agree to two-fight deal, with first bout in UK and rematch in US. Finally, a heavyweight fight worth paying for.

Sounds like this isn't offical yet. Seems like the Wilder camp agreed to the terms proposed. But, no agreement has been signed. I see this as a feeler to see the public reaction. I think we are aways away from happening.

Yeah. Joshua should’ve cashed-in when he had the chance.

That was hilarious. I am surprised the kid didn’t try to eat Joshua after he ko’d him. As Teddy Atlas said “He destroyed Joshua and 100 years of wisdom concerning physical fitness.”

Apparently, Joshua got paid $10 million to fight by one of the sponsors. Not sure that was a good ROI in light of the outcome. Of course, the Heavyweight division is garbage so who knows what he and Wilder would have ultimately made.
