    Interesting matchup here.

    Can Wilder get him out of there?

    Tbh I think McCall would likely stop Wilder ... McCall had good power to go with his iron casted jaw. I can see McCall getting hurt by Wilders right hand but ultimately recovering from it.

    Ollie McCall is exactly the sort of guy Wilder would have avoided and rightly so. That ridiculous chin combined with power combined with Wilder's hittability can only end up with Deontay taking a nap at some point.

    McCall gets nailed by a Wilder right hand and all McCall does is blink. McCall can be outboxed but its not going to be easy for Wilder as hes going to be demoralized when his power doesnt phase McCall.

    The more i think about this I think Wilder would hate being in this fight. McCalls resume is also much better than Wilders. Wilders best competition probably the Luis Ortiz fights, Fury and Stiverne? Contrast that with McCall who wasnt moved carefully at all, Mike Hunter Sr, Buster Douglas, Tony Tucker, Orlin Norris, Lennox Lewis, Bruno, Holmes, Maskaev, Jesse Ferguson, Damiani, Akinwande, he was even scoring decent wins way past his best.

    All that to say, ill pick McCall by KO.

    Yeah Wilder would duck him

    Not worth it for him to take this kind of opponent

    McCall was eating right hands from Lewis without protecting himself and still didn't get hurt. McCall was a big strong durable guy with average skills and decent power ... Wilder would likely get stopped .... He could barely take Fury's power

    Wilder may win a close decision but he doesn't knock McCall out. With Wilder's power he has a 1/50 chance of doing so but the problem is McCall is not only absurdly durable, he knew how to survive by going into his shell and retreating.

    And given that McCall could be a good counter puncher and Wilder could be very sloppy there's actually a good possibility McCall stops the power puncher.

    So far everyone is correct.
    Although Wilder could get a decision, it is more likely McCall, who likely has the best chin in boxing *ever*, either wears him down, or walks him down after taking hellacious blows.

    This is kryptonite sort of fight for Wilder for the reasons previously mentioned here. Deontay gets knocked out

    McCall would have a great chance here. Wilder sits back doing next to nothing waiting to turn/end the fight with one big right hand and it doesn't happen. Alternately if he tries to up the ante late he might gas before he gets McCall out of there.

    Can’t see wilder beating any good fighters with great chins. Men like Tua, Chuvalo, Foreman, Baer, and McCall prob stop him before he stops them.
