    The Wilder fanboys will start getting their excuses in place. Dodgy refs, biased judges etc

    No excuse but the UK has terrible stoppages for some odd reason

    The false bravado to try and mask fear, pitiful, but hey get as much out of it as you can because the clock will strike midnight soon enough.

    The cream always rises to the top, Joshua will show has quality and Wilders far too many contests against sub standard opposition will be very apparent.

    British stoppage will be wheeled out if Wilder is TKO'd whether it's legit or not. Luckily for Joshua I think he puts Wilder away in a way that only straight up morons will be able to complain. And they will.

    No judges or referees needed when Wilder whips up some of those sweet, sweet windmills and blows the bodybuilder into oblivion. Bomb zquad, baby.

    Get that body bag ready and make sure the material used is roid proof so nothing leaks out whilst carried.

    Fairly sure that will happen with the losing party of either side. It usually does.

    If Wilder does come to the UK It shows his cojones are superior to AJ's. Should really be a neutral Venue

    Wilder fares little better than his compatriots who have travelled to the UK such as Kevin Johnson, Eric Molina and Prince Charles Martin.

    Hopefully the Wilder hype train gets derailed soon then we can discuss more competive options for AJ such as Tyson Fury or a Dillian Whyte rematch.

    I’ve got this odd feeling that it’ll be Whyte who eventually beats Joshua. I think he’s vastly inferior as a boxer, but he’s just so tough and wants it so badly.

    I’d love it to be Fury, but still far too early to tell what sort of Fury we’re ultimately going to get. Have this horrible feeling he’s going to be a shell of his former self..

    I'd guess that's the aftermath of the number of high profile injuries during the 90's. Watson/Eubank and Benn/McClellan I think saw a more cautious approach from refs. 13.1 million people watched Benn/McClellan live, that was about 23% of the UK population back then. That kind of high profile tragedy leaves a legacy I guess in the approach from referees.

    Older posters who watched boxing in the 80's and earlier in the UK, did we have such terrible stoppages like this before the 90's?

    Has the US had deaths or injuries in such high profile fights where the injury or death became mainstream news?
