    I got Wilder by early knockout, because Pulev has no head movement.

    If Pulev will pressure him he will win.

    Pulev keeps his head still, and over relies on his jab. Wilder shoots his right over the top and KOs Pulev.

    One counter Wilder can throw is a straight right over the jab so this is a matchup that favours him. He will struggle mightily until he times that jab though. Not to mention he could use his own long pawing jab to blind Pulev's unmoving noggin and set up an early KO shot.

    More to do with Pulev being old, non athletic and reaction times shot to bits. Pulev also can’t take a decent punch. Wilder won’t win a round and then he’ll land in round 7 or 8. Pulev’s jab will give him issues though.

    Don't believe Pulev takes that right hand at all and stays upright at this stage in his career.....

    Gonna give Wilder the benefit of doubt here and believe the injury existed before Fury 2 - Watching both fights back I've seen similarities on the right hand connection on Furys jaw and on the 2nd fight it doesn't seem the power was there at all but maybe that's just me and the 3rd fight will go the same but gut feeling tells me Wilder drops Fury again in the 3rd fight and will he rise is open for debate....

    He’s older now but Pulev took many bombs from klitschko especially that overhand right which is one of the hardest punches he ever threw and in history and pulev took it well, he could survive wilders punch.

    Pulev busts up Wilder’s face, rocks him several times with jabs, gets clocked with a right hand around mid rounds to a KO loss.

    Even with a particularly long ring walk with a particularly heavy costume Windmill would beat Pulev easily.

    Pulev is way past his best and his best wasnt very good to start with. Decent technician that's all.

    Windmill ko by round 6.

    Prime for prime? See Usinov and Dimitrenko fights. Not sure today though. Wilder might be able to catch him but Pulev would definitely outbox him early on.

    Now its more competitive, Pulev in his younger days takes it.

    Wilder by KO but Pulev would probably outbox him in the early stages.

    Pulev is another 40 year old man who doesn’t belong at the elite level. But somehow is ranked there thanks to a combination of designer PEDs and corrupt sanctioning bodies.

    I can understand how the elite HWs would rather fight 40 year old men than men in their mid to late 20s though. That makes sense .
