    Obviously Joshua is more dangerous than Wladdie.

    Look at the Pulev situation. Happily fought Wlad for a measly 20% cut. . Won't fight Joshua for multi millions. Quacked out of the fight twice.

    Doubtful Haye would ever have fought AJ either. He would have stayed at Cruiser if he was around today.

    No, this is what business looks like but keep talking about fear mongering like a casual. Funny when Golovkin was ducked you weren't so eager to call out the duckers instead you made excuses for them and put the blame on GGG.

    Devil’s advocate: Vitali was slated to fight Lewis in December anyway, and may have walked away with a W if that fight happened.

    I think it's def a punk move by Kownacki that's be suggested as the 'smart' move by shadowy overlord Al Haymon who's looking out for himself here.

    6 weeks is plenty for anyone not a complete slob outside fights and a big payday at MSG for 3 titles so have any heavyweight contender worth their salt breaking down the door to sign on for that fight but instead we have an 'advisor' telling his charge that he'd be better off ignoring what may be his only chance for a crack at the gold because he wants to see a rival's show falter. Pathetic.

    Yeah but how is he ahead of Whyte, by the WBC as well?

    This.

    I guess since most other US HW boxers are so limited is why he gets hype because he some does have decent skills. And yes he did well against Usyk at CW but as you say he's small for HW these days.

    Decent boxer but really too small to trouble Joshua. I don't want to see this fight as Joshua will pummel him and he seems a decent guy.

    He has ok skills, but he's wild and cavemannish when throwing power shots and tends to lunge badly at times. There's nothing he does exceptionally well that would counter his lack of size at HW, no incredible defence, amazing speed or power, crazy ring iq. Joshua has him beat in all categories.

    Otto Wallin is calling out Joshua and willing to step in. Undefeated Swede, lives in NYC and ranked, (I actually met him at Jimmy's Corner bar in Times Square a few days ago, very cool dude). Here's his post from his IG and FB: "

    Jarrell Miller was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua on June 1st in New York but that fight has been cancelled so now AJ is looking for a new opponent for that date.
    I’m already living in New York, I’m 20-0 and ranked

    within the WBA and IBF and me and Anthony know each other well from the amateurs and from sparring close to 200 rounds before he won his first world title. I believe I have the style to beat Anthony and I’m ready to step in as Jarrell’s replacement. It’s been a dream of mine since I was a kid to fight for the heavyweight world championship and to become the second Swede after Ingemar Johansson to become heavyweight world champion."

    I really wonder about some of these guys, they really overvalue themselves. I'd love it if Joshua and Wilder both lost a couple of times and the money evaporated to see the looks on their faces.
