Anyone would think we’d been going through a worldwide pandemic the last three years.
It will probably be an easier opponent like Wallin, Yoka, Ortiz etc.
It won't be a Bakole, Hunter, Hrgovic level opponent unfortunately.
It’s ridiculous how employees of crappy Matchroom are allowed to post this rubbish on here. It’s so pathetic and boring.
Far from me to assume that I can predict the thoughts of the Matchroom brain trust but in terms of AJ rehab whilst at the same time generating cash a AJ v Whyte rematch is a hypable ( not a real word ) fight. With that in mind how can they keep Whyte credible while not risking him getting starched ? It will be interesting to see but I doubt it will be Wallin
It has been more than 1 year since I wrote in this forum that I do not believe that Dillian Whyte can defeat Wallin.
Today I doubt AJ would defeat Wallin. Anyway, I see that fight as very even.
Whyte's at that point in his career where he'll lose most of his big fights but will from time to time batter a hyped up prospect. Basically the Delboy route. Don't know why people call for a fighter to retire the second he's past his prime
I could see Joshua-Whyte2 in the fall depending on what happens with AJ in the summer. I suspect Hearn is going to hold everything up for a Fury or Wilder fight
Francis Ngannou is a gigantic diva who won't fight anyone other than Fury/Wilder/Joshua. It would've been like Conor McGregor fighting Paulie Malignaggi in 2017. There's a reason he's hated by hardcore UFC fans
The money will be good and Ngannou is a free agent. At some point he will need to make some money. I’m sure Hearn would promise him a shot at AJ if he somehow beat Whyte and it would probably be contractual.
Whyte has also offered him a two fight crossover deal where he boxes him and then fights in the cage so it might appeal to Ngannou. Money talks at the end of the day.
Wallin is a good fight for Whyte, but I’d rather see Joshua take him out in two 5 rounds to shut the haters up..
Surely Ngannou biggest pay day is Wilder though. They need somebody with profile in the states.
Wow clearly a lot of people on here did not see Wallin’s last 5 fights since the Fury loss … he’s looked so average it’s painful
Maybe he fights Takam. Carlos did call him out after the Yoka win.
Wallin gave prime ATG Fury hell.
Whyteleafe or Joshua level fighters don’t have a performance like that in them imo.
He did (but he wasn't "prime") we should try to keep things in perspective. Fury switched trainer right after the Wallin fight. That wasn't the man we saw fight either Klitschko or Wilder 2.
I don't think Wallin's style has changed much over the years. And he hasn't exactly been sharpening his tools. So, I'd expect Joshua to deal with him pretty easily at pro level.
The Whyte fight is definitely interesting though.
Are we really saying Fury is an ATG now? If that’s the case boxing is at an all time low.
Fury is top ten ATG and top three H2H
