    I'm going with Wilder. Unifies all the belts and Wilder is a known commodity with one punch power. Fury on his game is a more impressive win but mentally and physically he is so all over the map the win could be diminished. Also the clear cut certainty of a KO looms better than a decision, which has the possibility for bad judging and controversy.

    Fury has a better resume than Wilder, so a win over Fury would mean more. Wilder has beaten mostly scrubs.

    Given that many think Fury has been gene spliced with Ali, Holmes, Louis and a smattering of every other boxing great that ever lived, I believe that the stiff robot Joshua out boxing Fury would surely make for a more credible win than landing a lucky punch on the granite chinned Wilder for the KO....:bananaride

    Except he didn’t beat him officially and Wilder is still the WBC champion. So Joshua beating Wilder will not only be in all probability, a spectacular KO but a chance to become undisputed champion so that definitely rates higher than a win against Fury.

    Tough question. I dont think there really is much in it. Ive gone Fury on Pts. Wilder always looks like he is there to be knocked out and when that fight happens i dont expect it to go 12 who ever wins. Fury looks like he is tough to beat on points youd expect in that fight the chances were Joshua by KO or Fury on pts. I think for Joshua to beat Fury on the cards is more impressive than knocking Fury out or knocking Wilder out.

    K.Os against other K.O artist always erases who the best fighter actually is.

    A win over Wilder is better for AJs resume

    He gets another major belt and beats a fighter in the top 3.

    Fury only gives him a win over another top 3 fighter and for AJ it is far more difficult to win. Infact many would favour Fury to beat AJ.

    I picked the Wilder KO win...but a KO over Fury would be better than that. A points win will never be looked at the same way as a KO win. Come to think of it....I wish there was no such thing as a points win. Every fight should go a limitless number of rounds until someone is knocked out or stopped by corner/ref/doctor lol.

    Depending on how the fight works out, I might rank a dominant points victory by AJ over Fury as being an overall better win than a one-punch KO of the big lad.
