    In favor of what ? Weight isn't an advantage over wilder its height. No guy below 6'2 would defeat wilder if he cant have quick feet .Its why he know its a far easier fight for him then AJ,hence " I want Ruiz not AJ "

    Wilders team will scout Hrgovic out of everything to do with Hrgovic and stay away from that one at all costs if Wilder manages to slide by fights beyond 2020 .

    I wasn't talking about weight. I'm saying that Ruiz being smaller works to his advantage.

    Yes, Ruiz doesn't have particularly fast feet. But he's got fast hands and he'd be able to get inside on Wilder.

    I personally think that Ruiz is a much harder fight stylistically than what Joshua would be for Wilder.

    Joshua is tall and doesn't have fast hands. He doesn't throw lots of combinations. He hasn't got good in-fighting abilities and he has stamina issues.

    Wilder would be able to time Joshua much easier than what he would Ruiz.

    Ruiz brings speed, power, pressure, hunger and confidence to the table.

    Although Joshua is technically better than Wilder, I think Wilder would take him out. Yet I'd give Ruiz a very good chance of winning.

    How do you see the rematch playing out next week?

    Beside Tyson Fury? There's a couple of them that would stand a chance beating him. Here's what I think:

    -Usyk ( I'd favor Usyk 55/45 to 60/40, Wilder would probably barely hit him, but if he lands that right...)
    -Ruiz (Wilder favorite 55/45 to 60/40, Ruiz isn't gunshy at all, uses every opportunity to counter, but he isn't really actively looking to get on the inside)
    -Joshua (Wilder favorite 55/45)
    -Whyte (Wilder favorite 55/45, Whyte loves to go in the inside, but still there's a great chance for Wilder catching him on his way in)
    -Povetkin (Wilder favorite 60/40, Povetkin the similar style to Whyte and more skilled but so old now, much slower with a very diminished punch output)

    Stylistically I think Parker and Ruiz could give Wilder problems. Good chins, very underrated defensively (mainly Parker who doesn't get enough credit for his defensive work) and quick hands Parker is not as good as he should be on the inside though unlike Ruiz. Wilder, although his chin is decent imo, doesn't look overly comfortable when defending off the back foot against a come forward fighter hence why I think Ruiz could be a nightmare for him.

    Not sure how good Usyk's chin at HW and he is a very slow starter in fights which is why I'm unsure as to how he goes against Wilder at this stage. We all knows that he'll outbox him but how does he take a punch?

    Joshua doesnt have fast hands? Are you blind?

    He doesnt have inside game either? His best work is done on the inside... all the professionals and 99 .999999 per cent of the forum agree Joshua doesnt have an outside game or jab

    Why are you the only one who thinks otherwise?

    Hopefully because you are talking about another fighter called Joshua

    Stylistically and overall, Whyte would give Wilder his hardest fight to date.

    Bodyshots would gas Wilder almost immediately.. look what it did to Chisora Rivas Brown AJ Parker and all of Whytes victims

    Whyte has chopped plenty fighters with body shots who were much thicker in the mid section than Wilder... no amount of conditioning or abs work can prep you for that sorry

    between his thin abs ribs and body organs there is too little meat to absorb Whytes shots

    AJ is a bodybuilder well conditioned beast snd he was getting hurt bad by the body shots and that was back in 2015

    Rivas is the most stocky guy in the division.. 236 at 6 foot? All muscle.. thats like mr olympia level

    and he was getting hurt


    How the hell is 6 foot 7 ..215 pound Wilder going to take those? Answer: he wont

    Right hand, left hook, jab... Whyte can hurt Wilder with plenty of shots... they have hurt many other big strong tough guys

    Noone. That right hand is too long and changes the complexion of a fight immediately.

    My eye sight is fine.

    He's fast for a man of his size, but not in comparison to a guy like Ruiz.

    He's not notoriously fast.

    I didn't say he didn't have an inside game. I said he hasn't got particularly good in-fighting abilities.

    Ruiz would be a hard match for Wilder.

    You have labelled Joshua as a body builder yourself. Although he's technically better than Wilder, he isn't as fast. I think Wilder would catch him.

    Out of all the fighters out there I think Parker has the right mix to beat Wilder

    There are other who’ve all been mentioned here but I’ve thought for a while now that Parker will come again and it’ll be Vs Wilder. I don’t think Deontay and his handlers want anything to do with Parker, if they did they’d have gone after his belt before Joshua did.

    I think Ruiz is to flat footed and would get caught Usyk has a much better shot
