    Joshua's made a lot of money. If he gets beaten up by Ruiz again he might re-think his plans and retire.

    People saying this upcoming match will be a huge grossing fight and someone said "£100 million" goes to AJ but, if that's true, I suspect it's not from real profits and would be coming from Saudi government.

    Teddy Atlas said on his podcast this week that Wilder is the hardest hitting heavyweight of all time.

    That’s some praise that. He does love his past greats so I was shocked to hear that.

    I think Wilder is the hardest puncher in boxing history. He has appaling accuracy, poor technique and sub par co-ordination.

    He seems to have a decent enough chin though, and he has good athleticism and stamina.

    I think Wilder is fortunate to be in the era he is in. In the 90s he would have ended up a contender to a Lennox Lewis or someone and hes so far behind a guy like that in terms of technique that he would have got cleaned out pretty bad. I also think Wilder is a guy who will be finished career wise if/once he gets stopped, if the guy becomes hesitant to let the right go out of fear of a counter, he will become very ineffective.

    You see it often with punchers, once they get cracked themselves the party is over. Not really anyone around right now to do it though.

    So in summary, hardest puncher ever, but not the best fighter ever, not by a long shot.

    I dont think anybody even contemplated Wilder a great boxer. We all know what he is and that makes him an intriguing watch. The heavies are very basic and if you do 1 thing exceptionally well it can be enough to stand out.

    It will be good to have Joshua back at the O2 it's a much better venue for boxing.

    It’s a tough one. He’s not exactly fighting the best of the current crop constantly, which itself isn’t the greatest generation of heavyweights but I just wouldn’t back anyone against him with confidence. I’ve said before but only people I think can beat him are Joshua and Dubois and they just need to blast him out early, would I back them with confidence? No. Maybe Povetkin with his left hooks but even less confident. Usyk a good possibility too.

    I scored it a draw or maybe Wilder by 1. I do what a lot of people don’t though, I give 10-10 rounds When there’s nothing in them. Which is what you’re supposed to do.

    Well that really doesn’t build much confidence in Wilder/Fury 2 breaking records does it? Perhaps leave it another 12 months and let it build some more in the imagination :)

    WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP FALLING FOR THIS TROLL PAGE!!

    I've been noticing a lot recently just how many people believe fake quotes, screenshots etc they see on the Internet. It's mind boggling. Some of the things you see are so stupid you don't even need to research if it's fake or not as it's so blatant yet people believe it.

    Yet It's these same people that say to me "how do you believe that crap?" when I talk about VIP pedophile rings, false flags etc. I have to laugh.

    People don't have any braincells. I seen many people were commenting on the "awkward silences" in the Joshua Ruiz gloves are off video. I know nothing about videography/production but even I know that the awkward silences are clever video editing.

    Humans! Arghhhhh

    based on those figures Fury generated over 300k ppv buys IN AMERICA as a virtually unknown fighter. He really is the A side.

    It is an issue these days, look at the £350m for the nhs each week, plastered on buses. People seem to lack critical thinking skills and take stuff at face value. Maybe they always have but it certainly seems to have got worse in the age of social media.

    People fail to see that Tony Dosh PPV has a mountain of cash already that he will never spend and Puddings Whyte/Chisora/Parker/Bellew etc are also multi millionaires absolutely rolling in money - all courtesy of the uneducated cohort of PPV mugths.

    Eh Day says bi and they bend over without thinking - they believe all the garbage acting, false statements and get no pudding exposure for most Box Office fights which are really 90% pay per puddings.

    Bit like these charity adverts plastered all over Sky TV these days where people working for them at the top are millionaires - the adverts are basically begging for mugths to pay their huge salaries.

    The mugths never learn and sucked in time and again. Tony Dosh PPV v Rice Pudding Jnr billed as greater than Rumble in the Jungle when in reality it is A. Big Stiff v A. Fat Pudding
