    Is wallin even that good. Tidy enough boxer...but i dont think hes ever stopped anyone that anyone knows in 22 fights. Stopped 14...but every single one of them are no namers. Kaufmans the only other one who was stopped on a shoulder injury.

    Breazeale was knocked out in 2 rounds by wilder. I still think the fury fight flatters wallin. A lot of that was down to furys undisciplined performance that night. Hes awkward wallin...tidy boxer...but hes an accident waiting to happen at heavyweight if he cant stop anyone.

    Whyte will beat wallin for me. Whytes no world beater but he should have enough to win that fight.

    Joshua by stoppage or UD. He'll catch Wallin with a counter or well timed straight at some point, and once he does he'll hurt him and pour on the pressure. Wallin is awkward and better than many initially thought, but he's not really got the tools to beat Joshua, and is an extremely light puncher.

    Wallin EASY.

    I mean sure; Joshua has 2 amateur wins over him, often hires him merely as a sparring partner and has beaten some highly ranked opponents... but has he ever given the great lord Tyson Fury a decent challenge? I think not!

    Plus, anyone has a chance against AJ now that he's been exposed by Usyk. Like, who even is that little Ukrainian guy? He's not exactly one of the most experienced and greatest technicians of all time now is he?

    I believe that AJ's amateur career is full of robberies. He robbed his opponents even in the Olympics. Only God knows how he robbed his opponents in regular bouts..

    Dillian Whyte beat the crap out of him like a stepchild. Mihai Nistor beat the crap out of him even worse. Magomedrasul Majidov beat him clearly but scorecard was 21-22.

    AJ is fraud in both amateur and pro in my book.

    AJ improved massively as a pro, Dillian Whyte discovered that in brutal fashion...

    Who has he robbed as a pro?

    There's a meme about how bad AJ sparked Whyte out. Have a word, child.

    Since JOshua lost his last fight, some people think Chisora would beat Joshua now. It's getting ridiculous.

    Good fight but can't see what Wallin's got that should both AJ too much to be honest. Tough and competitive fight, sure, but this has got an AJ UD written all over it for me.

    115-113 joke scorecard for Usyk.
    Unnecessary early end of Takam.
    119-109 and 118-110 joke scorecards in the Parker fight.

    Takam was a heads up that Joshua isn't good at coping with smaller guys throwing feints. Shocking stoppage agreed.

    I agree, although after that showing I am giving a few more fighters a chance to beat him than previously, AJ without confidence is a far easier fight than pre-Usyk, pre-Ruiz AJ. It seemed to me during the fight that it sapped his confidence once he realised the smaller fighter could hurt him, even though a lot of people were saying Usyk couldn't hurt a lot of cruiserweights, how is he going to hurt a full blown heavy etc so it'll be interesting to see how he approaches his next fight with an established heavy, even if it were to be a lighter puncher like Wallin
