I like Wilder and Fury, don';t know muhc about Dallas but I am watching. Got to be something wrong with Price or he would be fighting a little better competition.
I remember folks saying that they spar in camp and that Pulev handles Helenius rather easily.

I remember seeing Romanov KO Wilder at 201lbs. I don't think he has a HW chin.

Speaking as an American- its harder to see Chisora's fights out here than Fury's, as last time I checked, there was only his debut and a some clips on youtbue. From what little I have seen, its hard to see what exactly his exceptional qualites are, whereas Fury, for all his faults, it clearly a big boy with fast hands, some power to the body, and so far, a good chin.

Like I say though, it could be that a lot of American voters are just not up to speed on Del Boy.

I heard that, and then I heard it was the other way around- Helenius hurt Pulev's ribs pretty good. I like them both, and would love to see them both get a piece of the title.

As for Wilder, he is very, very young. His height being what it is, he woudn't reach his physical prime for almost another decade. His chin should improve as he puts on weight. Helenius and Pulev are much better prospects for the immediate future, but Wilder is going to take his time and come up slow.

Reality is that Wilder is never going to aquire the boxing abilities of Pulev, simple as that.

I probably agree, but Pulev seems to me to be a pretty seasoned and exceptional boxer,so thats a pretty high bar.

Wilder will do a lot with that right hand alone. He may not have to refine his skills greatly.

I picked Helenius and Pulev, and I am stikcing to that. All I am saying is I see Wilder getting in there at some point as a solid contender, possibly a guy who can pick up an ABC belt along the line.

He moves quick for a heavy, got great skills and plenty of power. He was out injured for much of last year, but he's back now. Hopefully they'll start putting in bigger fights now soon.

Chisora - ***ton will be interesting, but in the end all those Eastern Euro guys have leagues on the Brits in terms of experience and are being moved along much more aggressively.
Somebody should tell Wilder he needs to speed it up a bit...I don't know about this 'adding 30 lbs.' business, he's still weighing in at 215.

Perez looks good, but he's just so short. They list him at 6' but I don't think he's even 5'11". Kubrat has the size and looks the part, but I get skeptical of these guys coming up in Germany. Same goes for some of these British guys. I'd like to see some of these Euros fight in the USA on some undercards or something...

Orlandier Solis must be up there, beat Haye in the Ams, clearly got talent and power but I admit does look a bit overweight but still way above Fury.
