Would Wilders chin hold up?

  1. Glass shatters in the ring

    85.9%
  2. Chin somehow absorbs the blow

    14.1%

    Ah I remember that. Wilder is so protected it’s unreal. 25 seconds recovery time he got added on to the full minute he was on his stool. Ridiculous.

    Could they-would they get up, who knows?
    However what is definite is that Fury, AJ, Wilder and any other heavy would not want their whiskers tested by Povetkins uppercut, it would spoil their day somewhat whatever the eventual outcome.

    Thread should be called what heavyweights would somehow have survived the Povetkin uppercut?

    It was harder than any punch Fury hurt Wilder with.

    Are you trying to say Whyte could have got up?

    Hell no!
    But he wasn't given a count and if Wilder was out before he hit the canvas like Whyte was, the referee would stop the fight and Wilder wouldn't have the chance to have his own Holmes Shavers II esque moment

    Wilder's neck muscles are so underdeveloped, its so thin, it would take Wilder's head clean off.

    The only guy I see take this uppercut is prime Vitali who took a similar punch from Lewis and somehow managed to stay on his feet, if just barely so.

    First off Wilders first line of defense is to lean back. that on top of being several inches taller than Whyte would mean that the exact same uppercut that landed on Whyte would have had less force behind it by time it made it up to Wilders chin, if not missing altogether.

    Stretcher case, but might be brought round eventually with enough perfumed ammonium carbonate.

    The shot was perfect and one Whyte didn't see, it would've dropped a horse.
