    Cause he is Of the juice.

    He will get back on the juice. There was no consequence from pissing hot . He got a pass when caught.

    Very well said no matter what the English fans/matchroom fans try and tell you.

    Wilder went life and death with Szpilka and Duhaupas, couldnt KO Stiverne 1, has had more dives than Greg Louganis, and hasnt won a round against anyone who can box. Fury was busted up and almost beat by a random Swede, was beat by John McDermott and absolutely floored by 2 cruiserweights. By your logic, niether Wilder or Fury are that good either (Big 3 is laughable) and belong in Whytes company.

    He is a rough and game lad who isn’t afraid of anyone and that makes him dangerous for anyone, that’s why he’s avoided because he’s something rare in the heavyweight division and someone who’s hard to prepare for. Is he the best of the rest? I don’t know but his record is respectable and he keeps putting it on the line, he’s exactly the type of fighter to pull off an upset and for anyone with a belt exactly the type of fighter to avoid, certainty from a promoters or managers point of view

    He is marginally better than career scrub Chisora.

    He's 4th best in the world because he's put in the work and got better wins than everyone else you mentioned. Fighters should get titles shots off of what they have achieved. Not some BS eyetest conducted by the fans.

    What dafuq would you plebs like to see, a sport full of Wilders or a sport full of Whytes????

    Boxing would have NO money in it at all if every fighter was like Wilder....

    The fact Whyte hasn't managed a title shot (and an offer from AJ is not the same as enforced mandatory status) should be an embarrassment to every boxing fan and highlights the utter corruption and disfunction that threatens to see the sport wane compared to the UFC/MMA.

    Whyte is game and will put it all on the line against anyone. That's Why Wilder is, and has ducked him.

    He has a creepy following that like pretending he's a victim of terrible mistreatment, a shining star never allowed to shine as bright as it might.

    Fury said he was going to give Whyte the last fight on his big contract then changed it to Chisora a week later. That was funny.

    He has done enough to earn another shot if he can pass a drug test. Nothing more, noting less. What you are saying about the close calls and dodgy performances is true, but at the end of the day, he has a list of good wins.

    Since none of the first tier has exactly looked invulnerable themselves, lets build some of these contenders up instead of tearing them down.

    I'm not a huge fan of his but there's no doubt he put in the work to be where he is. He's not massively skilled or athletic but he's got a ton of dog in him and the ambition to be the best. I thought Parker would beat him for sure so as close and controversial as that win is I have to give him major props for that. His win over Chisora was expected, but not the manner of stoppage, and his win over the undefeated Rivas can't be sniffed at. Yeah he looked terrible vs Wach but then he's always been a hot and cold fighter so he's always going to be due these dud performances from time to time. At the moment I don't see how he can be overrated with the wins he's picked up.

    Whyte is a good fighter. I wouldn’t write him off against any heavyweight. Probably why they don’t want to fight him.
