    Wallin stands zero chance of stopping Hrgovic. He's stopped 2 of his last 9 opponents and one was on a cut and the other was a mercy stoppage after his opponent suffered an arm injury

    Wallin is a skilled southpaw technician with a sturdy chin but he's a feather duster and Hrgovic arguably has the best chin in the division. Waliin won't be facing an inactive injury-ravaged version of him whose dumbass decides to come in at 216lbs either. I'm sure Wallin can crack a bit when he sits down on his shots but he throws pity pats and does not possess natural power.

    Hrgovic can match him for height, skills, work rate, has a 4'' longer reach, a better chin and he hits a lot harder.

    Well if Hrgovic can't beat Wallin he's not a threat to win a title is he?

    Good fight but neither is ever scaling the summit while Usyk is still actively competing. Both light-years behind in talent.

    I actually think Hrgovic would win, but it would be a good fight, and both destroy Eddie Hearns best heavyweights

    They hate a Balkan brother, especially a deep Croatian brother

    Wilder has at least 35 percent chance of knocking out Hrgovic. Probably more. How is that zero risk?

    I like how active Wallin is able to be for 12 rounds despite his size. If Hrgovic can show up looking like he actually gives a **** he has a chance, but id honestly favour Wallin to win just because of his activity level

    Wilder has 0 chance of knocking out Hrgovic, he has no experience fighting Elite level oponents and wining.

    Braindead post.

    Ortiz x2, Breazeale, Helenius.

    And has knocked down the top man in the division Fury, 6 times across three fights.

    *40yo Ortiz, Breazeale is no name, not elite, Helenius maybe in top 50, not elite, only 2 fight vs elite oppoenets KO-ed in 1rst and 7th round

    Fury did that for the show in my opionion, but I have no great words for him aswell - imo he lost the first fight with countdown debacle, but whatever, he still has 1 name - 45 yo Klitcko, barely won decision to Walling who then was top 50 at best, not Elite

    Both Fury and Wilder are showbuisiness champions (yes that means they are fakes), let them fight Elites - Joshua, Hrgovic, Joyce, Zhang, why arent they fighting those guys? Chisora, Helenius, Whyte are not Elites.

    Hell, why arent they fighting Sanchez, Bakole, know why, you know why Fury fought 2 noncontedners, now 3, and why Wilder fought 2 times in last 4 years, once being loss, other being round 1. ko., wow, from extreme to extreme

    Hrgovic, Otto Wallin is not good and I'll die on that hill. He really isn't

    If I compare Hrgović's edition Vs. Zhang (southpaw) Hrgovic could lose to Wallin on points, if it was Wallin's peak, or repeat his "game" against Fury. I certainly think that Hrgović is a better fighter, but either he lacks motivation or more strong fights.

    Good scrap. I’d take Hrgovic by a competitive UD.
