    Since we obviously need to tone down who Deontay gets matched with, how does he do against the memorable gunslinger from the Dempsey fight?

    Wilder in 1.

    Is this fun for you people? Firpo makes Wilder look like Napoles.

    Firpo could deck and I don't see Wilder just walking through his shots.

    Have you watched Firpo throw a punch? He telegraphs it from a different zip code.

    Again, Deontay, for all his faults, is a far better boxer.... and a far better puncher than the hype job Firpo. They are not even in the same league. Also, Deontay actually trains for his fights and has had more than half a dozen main event type bouts against credible heavyweight opponents. Apples and Oranges.

    I think Wilder lost to the best H2H heavyweight in history last night and Wilder was dangerous until the fight was stopped. Wilder is still one of the best H2H heavyweights ever and is still a threat to Fury if they rematch. Wilder showed heart, he took a beating but still marked up a 6-9, 275 pound skilled fighter and lasted 7 rounds. Wilder could knock Firpo out to warm up for a real fight.

    Most likely outcome is Wilder ko1. But if Firpo survives the first round then probably WIlder ko2.

    No, he's actually a Luis Angel Firpo and Jose Napoles hybrid

    There's 2 versions, 1 has all of Firpos strength and power and all of Napoles skill and stamina. The second has all of Firpos skill and stamina and all of Napoles strength, power and size.

    You have to pick a winner for both
