    You cant say won't because no one can predict punches before they land but heres a blueprint of some off hand who can be potential problems and have a better chance then most ..


    1.Joshua. He would knock him out first. Terrible style for wilder to get by, no made highlights change that,and no taking credit for others dispprove it what they do @Wilder STEP up or SHUT up. Hes favored over wilder.

    2 .Hrgovic. To durable awkward ,able to make an ugly fight and I think is probably the worst match up for him bc he can take a shot and knows when to retreat or put it on someone. Hes also another guy takes away Wilders lengthy reach to not being significant. I favor him over Wilder.


    3. Usyk. Hard to really see him getting put down,i would have to see Wilder actually do it when he has severe trouble with movement. This is 50/50 at least now.

    4. Fury .They already fought Wilder could nt keep him down and its soley bc of movenmet ...SIMPLE movement with 85 inch reach which directly took Wilders reach away. Still a 50/50 fight though.

    5. Joyce . His pressure would make Wilder turtle up causing Wilder to be incapable of landing any power punch ,Wilder does NOT throw back when punches come his way. Joyce COULD avoid a knockout ,I would give him a 40% chance to win this one.

    Under radar guys that could potentially give Wilder an L .

    1. Vlad sirenko could possibly just bombard him and crush him if he lands early .

    2. DDD. His jab could really stuff Wilder from doing anything if he gets comfortable.

    3. Wallin .Another problematic southpaw FAR better then Spzilka and I think has things over Ortiz like spped and movement which prove good enough to stay with him. ( hes not really under the radar with Fury fight but ,,,,,,)

    I don't care what these guys do ..FOR Wilder these are high level threats at the moment ,more will come.. I didn't include Ortiz bc he already got knocked ,but that doesn't leave out possibility of avoiding one either. Pll have to realize that when facing this guy.

    im not sure about Joyce.. often is too still on his feet..he could be a simple target like Breazeale.

    Joyce isn't Breazeale,who glanced Wilder and made him back pedal. You cant look at ones weaknesses and ignore Wilders....that is inability to be effective puncher when punches come his way. Its another 50/50 fight really, Wilder has never fought a powerful 6'6 engine work rate like that who is awkward….Joyce was a big reason why fury did well, that was the guy he sought to spar for that fight bf relocating elsewhere.

    Joyce is far more threatening then Kownacki or Ruiz bc they don't move from the center ring much and they are significant reach disadvantage which makes wilder look better then he is at times.

    Hes perfectly capable of knocking out any of them.

    That said, Fury went the distance with him once already, it's conceivable he could do it again. I still believe he gets knocked out though.

    Ruiz would also seem tough to KO, and I could actually see Wilder playing it safe against him like he did the first time around with Stivern.

    Not sure about Parker...he's proven to be a formidable opponent but I think Wilder would catch up to him late in the fight.

    The rest of the division best just have those smelling salts ready to go

    (I’m assuming OP means “couldn’t” as in “doesn’t have the power to,” so I’m just listing fighters who I think might have the durability to take Wilder’s power, not ones who have the defensive or offensive capabilities to nullify it and/or beat him)

    Wach may able to stay on his feet against Wilder but he’d get stopped.

    The force of Joshua’s punches combined with Ruiz’s foot positioning were what put him down. Nothing else put a dent in him. He may be able to take Wilder’s power.

    Hrgovic and Makhmudov both showed excellent chins in the ams. They might have a chance.

    Kowacki has an awesome chin, but his defense is so hilariously awful that Wilder would prank land on It with like a 100 fully loaded up right hands that he would go down anyway.

    Ali Demirezen. Bit of a random one, but he’s never been stopped in the ams, and took plenty of punches from Ajagba without ever looking hurt.

    Wilder’s power is such that I wouldn’t say any of them could take it with certainty, I just think they’re the ones mostly likely to be able to.

    I think Wilder can knock out any current HW, but thats not the same as saying he will. In fact, a really decent boxer and mover (as far as that applies to the division), will have a more than equal chance against him, as I consider Wilder one of the worst boxers ever to win and defend a legitimate HW title. Whether thats down to him fighting 'bums' all the time, or that the current HW division is crap, I leave up to the more vocal 'conoisseurs' here
