    Still saying Fury. He will be 20%-30% better next time out, and he had his moments when he visibly hurt Wilder in the last one.

    Hrgovic for me. He is something special and will be the next champion for a number of years.

    It will either be him, or one of Wilders cherry picked defences that will go wrong (so that is none of those listed)

    Tyson Fury cant punch so it wont be him.

    I doubt AJ- Wilder ever happens. Whyte-Wilder never happens as that is a solid duck.

    HW boxing has a funny habit of cherry picked defences going wrong just asked AJ.

    If it's the case no HW can really stand up to flush shots from Wilder, no matter their chin, just as a matter of physics ... then it could be the fighters who either brawl with him from the outset and land or get KO'd, or the guys who can avoid the majority of bombs enough to potshot one on the button.

    Since nobody seems prepared to just come at Wilder and brawl lately, then I guess Fury has the best chance of avoiding the bombs long enough to land a fair few power shots. He probably landed more flush power shots than most Wilder opponents, but they didn't have enough power on them to be devastating. Perhaps he's stronger next time. Perhaps not or he gets clipped himself.

    But it seems to me the midway approach, where fighters can't defend enough due to lack of speed but also don't attack enough, this is the one that gets you almost certainly KO'd.

    None of them. The only one with a shot would be Joshua, but let's be honest, Wilder will have him doing the drunken master stanky leg all over the ring looking like a contemporary dancer doing his emotional interpretation of Bambi coming out the womb and out of there before the third.

    Usyk and Fury could both outbox him though. Ruiz doesn't stylistically match up well with him, but if his chin is even better than we all already think it is, he has a shot at outboxing him as well.

    Whyte's head would be in the third row by the third round, nothing to worry about there.

    It's the same tone used over a hundred years ago against Jack Johnson.

    Definitely won't be the bodybuilder Joshua. He's got no punch resistance what so ever. I hope the blob destroys him in December. lol

    AJ if Wilder finds his balls. So this is really a trick question bc we know he wont fight AJ.

    I voted AJ but the guy to stop him may have to be someone hes not afraid of which leads me to believe a Joyce or Hrgovic type getting a shot with him have punchers chances .

    Once he is over 35 he'll be RJJed in every fight. He got no technique,and once speed and reflexes go it's ovah.

    AJ is a better boxer and has a lot of power. Basically with these two it's whoever lands properly first.

    Him vs Joshua will be a 50/50 war. So probably Joshua if Joshua doesn't get stopped first.

    Joseph Parker has the speed and chin to take him OUT
