    Very likely yes, but also we all know there's now way Wilder risks taking that fight because even if he sparks Chisora out cold he'll probably be made to look bad before it happens.

    As long as he gets the W, who cares.

    Within the UK, yeah I think hes probably a legend. Hes a pretty big star over here and has provided a lot of moments over the years. British boxing fans will remember him fondly.

    Obviously globally and in terms of his actual ability hes not a legend.

    British Stoppage. Takam was slipping a lot of the shots before the ref stepped in. TKO doesn't always mean KO or a good stoppage.

    I like how love using official results, knowing lots of the examples you use hold corruption behind them in context

    Yes. It's not just about having belts. He'll be a legend as an entertainer. His fights are never boring, and he fights anyone.

    Biggest heart in boxing, and has fought many big opponents and never makes it easy for anyone.

    He embarrassed himself not the Klitschkos.

    Probably...

    And yet, Wilder is a fraud with a **** poor resume and we all know this... The question is how much of a fraud?
    Chisora is a career gatekeeper but he's got a far better resume than anyone Wilders beaten and arguably a better signature win now too.

    His not a legend, he has 12 losses but unlike the best guys he wants to fight the best of the best.

    I don't know why people are concerned if he fights Wilder, Wilder has 1 punch KO power so his not going to take a 12 round beating. If Wilder catches him it's over.

    His ability to keep being placed in high profile fights despite never winning a single big fight is legendary.

    I was really hoping he got sparked out so we can get rid of him once and for all. A win over Chisora is meaningless, and now that he's finally won a fight, he's gonna stick around and waste some real contender's time by getting a high profile fight he has no chance of wining.
