    I honestly believe whoever lands first wins this by KO

    I don’t. Wilder can take a pretty good punch

    Wilder. Early.

    Tommy's defense is not good enough against a tall guy like this with that handspeed and power. He would be forced to get in range to do anything and he would also be punching up.

    Wilder by the time the fourth round is out. I just feel that he's tougher than Tommy.

    Wilder has the obvious puncher’s chance. If he hit Tommy full flush, good night duke.

    But Tommy was as good an athlete as Wilder (i would even say that Tommy was a bit faster, atleast IMO), hit atleast as hard, and was a better fundamental boxer.

    Tommy by KO.

    Morrison by ko. Morrison was a far better fighter
    than given credit for by most on this site, and
    was better skill wise than Wilder. He
    also faced much better competition .
    Wilders' biggest claim to fame is
    getting beat by Fury 3 times,
    knocking out old men
    and fighters that never was
    anything special.
    Morrison is suffering the same fate
    as Cooney on this site.
    Their losses magnified much more than
    boxers of similar talent for whatever
    the reason....
    Morrison or Cooney were not ATG'S.
    But they were better than Wilder.

    There's only one sane expectation for how this would end.

    I think the likely outcome is Morrison making Wilder look bad for a while until Wilder catches him with a nuke and then it's over.

    Morrison controls the fight until the moment his defense betrays him, Wilder catches him and we all know Morrison can't take a punch...

    We don't really know that. A fighter like Fury does have power but he is a clubbing puncher. Morrison was much more of a lights out puncher.

    Wilder's going to catch him, and it'll be the worse Morrison's ever been knocked out (saying a lot, watch the end of the Mercer).

    It might go 5.

    A lights out puncher who never put out the lights of a ranked fighter.

    This fight doesn't make it past the 3rd round. I think Tommy would get to him first but it could go either way.
