    Probably not, maybe in the second half of 2017. Wilder isn't that good imo.

    Sorry man.

    Ain't gonna happen while his level of opposition sits around the Arreola / Wawryzk level. Wilder outclasses them by quite a bit.

    I think he got a fright against Szpilka and Duhaupas and decided against being too reckless.

    IMO Wilder is one of those guy's who could conceivably KO anyone, but has enough technical flaws that he could end up getting KO'd buy some top 25 guy's if matched wrong.

    If he gets absurdly overpaid like Jacobs then yes he will.
    Then look for him to lose and join Charles Martin on YouTube.

    With that chin he could be outclassing them, but it won't take a big punch to put his lights out. Some of the shots Whyte and Chisora was hitting each other with for example, put Wilder out for the count.

    Not a chance, it's pretty clear that they have no intention of pitting him against anyone decent. He's been champion for almost 2 years now and is about to make his 5th voluntary defence against another pushover.

    The only way he faces anyone decent is if the WBC enforce an mandatory title shot from someone decent and that's unlikely considering they have been very accommodating so far by allowing him so many voluntaries.

    Sounds like he better avoid those two then! No doubt his team of accountants are adding them to the list of fighters to dodge as we speak.

    If they're paying plane tickets, hotel and some casino chips I'll do it! Always wanted to see Vegas. Also, I have a bad cold and terrible asthma. Should put me right in contention ;)
