    Besides Fury, Dillian Whyte and then Ruiz. Potentially Usyk but would like to see how he fairs against a few other top HW's first.

    Hrgovic apparently had an easy time with wilder in sparring and he has reportedly a great chin. Anybody with a great chin and some decent boxing skills will beat wilder and if you throw in power wilder gets beaten up and stopped.

    Romanov. He already did it and he is near ranked high enough for a shot!

    Fury is the only one for me. Hrzgovic would be my second obviously after 1-2 more years though. On the fence with Usyk, has great feet and movement, but can still get hit.

    Ruiz isn't tailor made.

    Wilder would find it hard to time him.

    Ruiz can get close and come inside.

    A very dangerous fight for Wilder.

    Ruiz' size is a disadvantage to Wilder.

    Ruiz is fast and can get inside.

    Ruiz would be extremely dangerous.

    His size works in his favour.

    Technically speaking, Fury is -138 at this moment.

    I also think a short fighter with great in fighting skills would be a nightmare for wilder who has zero in fighting abilities. He needs distance to land his gangly punches.

    Good grief Joshua would get carried out the ring.

    I can imagine him standing there, ear muff guard, eating right after right after right.

    Joshua has the least chance out of fury, Ruiz .

    Maybe Hel land a hail Mary, but wilders Hail Mary will land first

    I mean, Fury already did, so there is one answer.

    I would pick Ruiz, Joshua, and Usyk as well.

    "Can?" A lot.

    "Would favor..." Hard to come up with more than a couple names.

    Far too early to be mentioning Dubois at this stage, boxing all about levels and he's still a baby.

    Joyce carries power but not one punch, it's more wearing you down and I don't think he does that to Wilder.... plus he can be hit and Wilder would find him with the right hand early doors in a fight between the two which wouldn't be good for Joyce.
