    My take on Wilder Vs AJ is this; The AJ that lost to Usyk gets KO'ed in 4 purely on the fact that AJ isn't giving Wilder enough to think about.

    The AJ that beat Povetkin, maybe Pulev and Ruiz 2 is a 50/50 as at least AJ was throwing more than single shots and the AJ that beat Whyte, Breazeale, Wlad catches Wilder fairly early and gets him out of there so on currant form I would favour Wilder, AND I CANNOT STAND THE ****ING DELUSIONAL, EXCUSE MAKING, DISRESPECTFUL A HOLE! But AJ, and I am a fan has so lost his mojo that yeah, right now Wilder KO's him.

    I'd probably favour Joyce aswell and Fury is just too tough and has an insane gas tank. Usyk has no fear of AJ so likely handles Joshua easier in the rematch and it dismays me to say it as Joshua's obvious regression will likely deprive us of some potentially great match ups.

    Agreed and Wilder getting back down to the 215-225 kind of weight would likely weaken him at 37 quite drastically as he would be stripping off muscle mass which never bodes well.

    Maybe keep off the bench pressing and just do what comes natural.

    Actually, the bridger-weight thing is almost made for him. If he's not going to retired he should give that a shot.

    Not sure that's be a good think for Wilder. I think Makhmudov has called him out in the past, and I'm sure Mak. would take the fight, but the risk/reward equation doesn't work IMO. I agree, Andy Ruiz would be a really good option for him.

    Remember when they tried to lock me in an asylum for the criminally insane for saying that Michael ''The Bounty'' Hunter Jr. was America's best HW? Well once again Serge was proven correct.

    Fury didn't take all that much, he'll be ok.

    I think he might retire which would suck cause we would never see the Wilder vs Joshua fight. Would be another Bowe vs Lewis

    Also without the belt, he can't demand the lion's share of the split with any decent fighters.

    Even if he fights cans, he'll probably make less for each than pre-Fury.

    Because he's only really fought one guy worth mentioning?

    You could sail an aircraft carrier through the gulf in class between his best win and his humiliations
