    No he wouldn't have.

    Not the versions who fought Ruddock and Evander.

    That's a ridiculous statement to make.

    In history?

    Evander
    Wlad
    Vitali
    Lennox
    Foreman

    Really?

    Wilder would have destroyed Haye with his eyes closed and he is far better now than when he sparred with Haye some years back.

    Foreman wasn`t even fighting at 34 and was far slower than Ortiz at 40, Wilder would have destroyed him by that stage easily despite his great chin.

    Tyson was awful v Holy, all over the place, he got completely dominated in those fights.

    Mercer was easy to hit, Wilder would have blown him away.

    There was too much clinching in the Tyson-Ruddock fights they were crap.

    I'd say comeback Vitali at 37 was way better than Wilder at 34.

    With "Of all-time" you mean since you follow boxing (2 years)?

    Ortiz is more skilled than Haye was, Tyson was shot when he fought Lewis, Peter had no skills whatsoever and Tyson had no defense when he fought Holy, plus Ortiz throws better straight shots thanMike did v Holy, Evander said all he had to do to beat Tyson was bring his gloves to the side of his head and put his head forwards and down because Tyson`s punches came around instead of straight, he didn`t throw as many jabs in the 90`s to set up his shots the wy he did under Rooney`s guidance.

    What has that got to do with it? That version of Tyson would decimate Wilder.

    Not many.Wilder doesn't take much punishment and is in great shape always.his power usually means short fights and fighters are cautious about pressure due to this .
