    I'd have said Joshua instead. That's a scary dude.

    Tbh, stylistically i'd give him a decent shot against several of the current top 10 guys. Hunt is a short, old, slow brawler, Lewis is another slow as molasses sloppy brawler, Ngannou would possibly be dumb enough to try and stand with Wilder. I could potentially see Arlovski or even Reem getting caught too. I think Joshua and Fury could probably do the same to some of these guys. People are way too convinced that pure strikers are always going to get James Toney'd in MMA just because takedowns are legal.

    Lol that is a MW. LHW is he doesn't like cutting.

    Not all are Jones.. his skinny build asks for a leg kick or a takedown.

    in his last fight, he was moments away from being Ko'd...the guy does have power, but is incredibly slopping...he wings punches from everywhere...

    Anyone can get caught in MMA. No one is debating he couldnt win with a punch.

    It just isn't as likely as people think.

    Get your facts straight. Povetkin tested positive for a trace amount of Meldonium, which was legal until the new year and proven trace amounts could be in his system when used legally. He took another test and passed. I understand Wilder's concern, but that was actually a complicated situation.

    Fury popped for coke? Who gives a shit? Not a PED.

    Klitschko JUST retired you nimrod. Wilder won the WBC belt back in 2015. Not to mention Wlad raped him in sparring which is well documented.

    LOL at Haye? That's funny. That guy has better wins and fought better competition than Wilder.

    Oh right, I forgot that Wilder has only been fighting as a pro since 2017, my apologies.

    Wilder was a -325 favorite and no one was picking Ortiz, do you even watch boxing?

    you realize -325 is based on casuals betting ? No one was picking Ortiz? Look at the sherdog boxing poll, it was 50/50 ortiz via KO

    Based on those disgraceful scorecards, clearly he was "supposed" to win.
