    At some point during a fight Wilder will land the big shot. If you’re going to beat him, you have to be able to take it. I don’t think Joshua can. Wilder KO.

    Anthony Joshua could beat up on Wilder for an entire fight, the issue is when Wilder eventually lands................Joshua does not take shots well, he does not recover well. Wilder can get his ass beat and still land something that knocks you unconscious. Unless Joshua beats him up and puts him away early, Wilder stops him. Joshua trying to be a "boxer/puncher" would not put him away early. He'd have to go in to seek and destroy.

    When they were both undefeated, Wilder would have taken AJ’s head off.

    I’m not sure now that Wilder has been in multiple wars, and he was saying on the Kevin Hart interview that’s he not sure if his heart is in boxing anymore.

    But I would still take Wilder at this point, until I have confirmation that he’s no longer the fighter he was.

    AJ tooks Wlads best shot.

    took it like a champ, got up in good time.

    Power is the last thing to go like all boxing experts say. What makes you think Wilder hits harder than Wlad?

    But based on what? I don't get the high praise Wilder gets from some people, he's not beaten a single world class boxer in his career and his best win is Luis Ortiz who almost knocked him out and would have if not for a bogus doctor break.

    I always think this too, Wilder looked great beating up on plodders and no hoppers but he came up short big time in his first real test (second Fury fight), almost against Ortiz too as you say, and should have lost the first Fury fight to a clearly out of shape Fury.

    Joshua also looked great beating up on no hopers in the early stages of his career and has since stepped up his competition and done ok.

    The notion that Wilder was some sort of mythical beast before he fought Fury is all smoke and mirrors for me. He just doesn't have the resume to back this up. Hell, outside of the Wilder trilogy wins Fury only has Wlad as his stand out win. As good as I think Fury is it wouldn't surprise me if we have to come back down to earth with him soon too.

    For these reasons Wilder knocks AJ TFO in 9 at the very outside. AJ can't take that punch, and Wilder (though still pretty wild) generally throws tighter punches than Ruiz. He also has a better jab than Ruiz.

    They are both damaged goods at this point but unless Joshua makes a huge mental turn around, Wilder would knock him out.
    Wilder's right hand is a finisher if he can land it.

    Joshua still KOs Wilder, unless he's mentally broken by the Usyk fight. Just too much power, skill, ring iq and heart. I don't rule out Wilder clipping him at some point and maybe dropping him, but if he can't keep him down then Joshua will likely rally back at some point. At that point I can see Wilder start to wilt and capitulate soon after.

    If Joshua is beating on you, you're going down and out. Wilder showed heart vs Fury, but Fury isn't a hard puncher. He has average power. Heart goes out the window when you get flatlined. Not saying AJ would win for sure but I just think the Fury fights might be giving people the wrong idea that Wilder could withstand a beating from a big puncher.

    He took a monster right hand from Wlad and got up. He's not glass jawed.

    Wilder by KO.

    Bodybuilder is totally shot right now. Usyk defeat killed him. He prepared with his 100% for this fight unlike taco merchant Ruiz fight. He has glass chin and glass psychology. His psychology is so glass that even the nickname "Big Stiff Bodybuilder" Fury gave him crushed him. Also, he is afraid of being punched.
