    Who should the Bronze Bomber fight? He rules out Fury in the same statement.

    Wilder did say that in one of the his long interviews a while ago that he was looking to return at this that time. It's in the same interview that he mentions Whyte, Ruiz, Parker, Usyk and Helenius as possible opponents.


    So we will see Wilder vs Helenius then.

    Yep just clocked it. Cheers!

    Would be great if it was Whyte but reckon it will be Helenius.

    Helenius is a decent opponent, wouldn't mind seeing it tbh. Optically it would be good.

    A Gypsy king to a Swedish Viking

    Wilder is crazy

    All we need now is excessive Fury promotion from Hearn during AJ Pulev and we can all get excited.

    Mentions Whyte as the main guy knowing full well he is fighting Povetkin at that time. Then ends up fighting a guy who lost every round to Whyte and isn't amongst Whytes top 3 wins.

    It wouldnt be a good look at all.

    Robert Helenius will just get clocked. It's as if he's in quicksand and he doesn't move his head. Just another KO waiting to happen.

    I quite like Robert Helenius as a character, but he is not very good and is considerably past it. Adam Kownacki was just ridiculously overhyped. A plodding, brainless pudding.

    I'd prefer to see Deontay Wilder in with somebody more mobile.

    Yeah, in the ring it would look great. Big, big guy getting chopped up by the broomstick. Would be a great look.

    Was Kowanacki a chocolate pudding or a banana butterscotch muffin?

    Dillian Whyte is definitely a sausage

    AJ is a meat feast

    Wilder is a salted twiglet.

    Same here. All things considered, and Helenius’ recent destruction of Kownacki, it is a solid enough fight.
    Not top of the food chain, but a watchable fight with enough risk so as not to be a gimme.

    He'll fight Fury. Fury wants to fight in that time frame, too.

    That's when the alternate dates for the December fight were proposed for the Fox and ESPN execs.

    That's all this is.
