I dont doubt Wilder is the harder hitter, although it maybe closer than many may think. Wilder also looks a bit faster.
Regardless, imo AJ has enough power to KO wilder as vice versa and thats what makes it a great fight on paper.
I agree with Towers but he got KO'd by Warthog Lucas Browne. Wilder & AJ both would smoke RT
We know this already. The only mystery is if the difference in power is enough to counteract the monumental disparity in basic skill level. Personally I don't think it is.
Kudryashov hits harder than Dorticos. Dorticos knocked him TFO.
Shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. As Towers says “Joshua is more an accumulation puncher.”
When they can both knock each other out I fail to see why it matters.
Towers is friends with Wilder so he's gonna say that.
Wilders straight right hand is considerably harder than anything joshua has.
I consider wilder an A+ puncher and joshua a A-/B+ puncher
But i see this fight as being julian jackson vs Gerald Mclellan
A monster puncher with no skill vs a heavy puncher with skill
Wilder will get banjo'd
Mayweather fought 42 opponents with winning record, less than 5 had a lower KO percentage than Floyd.
You may put that down to him fighting lesser skilled opposition early doors......
But of his last 20 opponents only 1 had a lower KO percentage.
If the victor in this sport was simply decided by who can throw the hardest punch, Wilder/Joshua probably wouldn't even be Professionals.....And we could also replace one of the fighters with one of those arcade punch bag machines.
Wilder's straight right hand is A+......His left isn't anywhere near that.
Joshua's power is more like Wlad's, in that he could KO you with a straight right, a left hook or an uppercut.
Wilder has his right hand, but it comes from left field and can be seen coming. Joshua can box, has good defense, and hits hard with both hands, he will counter and Wilder will be out, but Haymon will probably not allow that fight to happen unless he controls everything. I guess they could fight in Alabama where the men are men and the sheep are nervous.................a huge crowd of 100 fans at ringside!
Wilder really needs to trim his team down.
Haymon+Finkle+Dibella is just stupid.....What have they even done for him anyway?
For all the s**t people throw at Hearn, he would've at least made Wilder a PPV star by now.
I think you could very well be correct.................
No, it isn't. Wladimir Klitschko has far greater single punch power and has far more concussive power. Wlad hits through his target and puts far more into every single power punch. Wlad also puts more opponents to sleep / state of unconsciousness or keeps them down for the 10 count. Whilst Joshua doesn't and needs to land more punches in succession to accumulate damage. Which results more in referee stoppages rather than 10 count knockouts or opponents going to sleep / becoming unconscious.
Anthony Joshua doesn't have a single punch which is quite as powerful as Wladimir Klitschko's left hook, or even his right hand (Wlad's left hook carries most concussive power).
Also, the vast majority of Joshua's stoppages come from his right hand. Either through the right uppercut or through the straight right hand. Very few are from the left hooks / left hand punches.
If you want to know a two handed knockout artist at heavyweight, that'd be Alexander Povetkin. He is a more appropriate example of a two handed knockout artist at heavyweight. He has knockout power in his overhand right and in his left hook. And has knocked out multiple opponents cleanly with either hand. More so than Anthony Joshua!
OMG when I read that there was a lamb on the TV bleeting, perfect timing lol.
