    Fury is faster than Joshua and he's 10X more awkward. Wilder KOs Joshua.

    Joshua is sharper and has the stronger punch, but he won't be able to take that many right hands that Fury took. I would favor Joshua to do it though.

    Wilder knocked senseless by Fury who isn’t a big puncher

    What’s he going to do if AJ lands clean?

    My opinion on that has never changed for the past few years.

    Joshua has far better technique, better defence and movement. Joshua would outbox and stop Wilder within first half of the fight.

    Not saying Joshua beats Fury, think it is a 50/50 fight, and definitely looking forward to watching it.

    Both have proven to be able to be stopped. Joshua is more skilled but I'm not sure that Joshua could stop Wilder like Fury did. And Wilder certainly has the power to land a bomb on Joshua.

    After seeing their weights I was 50/50 with it. Figured if Deontay had a hard time hitting fury first fight, gonna be harder in 2nd fight. And Roach thought fury coulda stopped wilder in the first fight if he pressed the fight, he did that this fight and did exactly that.

    Fury > wilder > joshua > fury.

    Although I think joshua could very well ktfo wilder before wilder lands, he’s more accurate and refined.

    One guy was concussed, had a busted lip, and a busted eardrum and had a giant wailing on him for 7 round straight, never showed one ounce of quit.

    AJ looked on the verge of tears after the first knockdown against Ruiz, and ran from him like a little girl in the rematch.

    Clearly Wilder is the more durable of the two and the less mentally fragile.

    No way AJ fights Wilder the way Fury did by staying in his punching range. Only Fury has the cajones to do it

    Joshua's chinny as hell. Fury's speed and herky jerky awkwardness was what gave him the success. Against Joshua, Wilder won't succumb to such ambush attacks.

    Then I guess Fury just beat a bum and he deserves no credit for it then. So you're right. But at least Wilder didn't get stopped by a short waddling tubster.

    I would as well. Wilder still has that power but it has now become obvious that Fury is out of his league and is the best in the division. He shoulda won last time...only lost 20 seconds of a 36 minute fight and finished on his feet and back in control....worst robbery in years. Made him look like an amateur again tonight. Joshua can't move like Fury though and I think Wilder would stop him fairly early and easily.

    Fury didn’t break out of sweat as you expect against a bum.
