    Starting this thread in response to an AJ V Wilder thread comparing their power, I feel Wilder is far more powerful and that even tough AJ has a very good punch that several champs in the past could have taken his power, which fighters in today`s heavyweight division could take AJ`s shots and could some of the smaller heavyweights of yeasteryear have taken AJ`s power shots?

    Many fighters before the Klitschkos era. Almost none during that except for Vitali and Briggs. Not sure prime Wlads chin could take Joshuas shots.

    No Lewis stopped Briggs so I feel AJ would have too since Briggs used to get hit so much.

    Lewis was a totally different level to AJ though Mark. Briggs is tougher so he has a chance, plus the punch to knock him out. I wouldn’t bet on AJ to win at all

    Lewis wasn`t stronger than AJ despite displaying more one punch power, AJ is more aggressive than Vitali was and would have landed on Briggs all-night long.

    I think AJ would have had a great chance of knocking out Lewis, he`s far better than McCall and Rahman were and could match Lewis`s size.

    Lewis was reckless in his fight v Briggs and got hurt, it was a wild brawl, Briggs barely beat an aged Foreman.

    The Briggs that Lewis fought was better than anything that Joshua’s fought so far, Pov and Wlad were way past prime by the time Joshua faced off against them

    He’s not far better Mark, Joshua’s a front runner imo mate, he doesn’t bounce back if he’s damaged. McCall is perfectly capable of taking Joshua’s best and taking him in to the late rounds and being able to seriously worry Joshua with Joshua’s has tank. It’s a fight McCall can defo win
