    Absolutely agree. if any of these 3 guys beat the other 2 and take all of the belts, they fully deserve to be an ATG

    A lot of it is they are just scared of not being the experts they pretend to be.
    Remember, a few of these guys have a lot invested in saying Wilder was all hype and a joke.
    The more Wilder sleeps guys the dumber their post look. So a lot of them are super defensive and rustled about it.

    I think they need eachother to reach any sort of historical notability

    Composed himself after the punch like the Cunningham fight???
    Wishful re-imagining of what actually happened.

    Definition of KTFO. Eyes were rolled up like the frigging undertaker.

    He even stated the punch could've killed him even tho he recover quickly.
    Wilder has frightening power.

    I agree with this. They can drive each other to greatness.

    lol and now you are taking fury at his word!

    as per my initial post he wasn’t out cold. I gave you reasons as to why that is the case, and your proof is an article from the sun newspaper! lol
    Fckin laughable. You’re clueless pal

    The irony is you dont understand a lot more than that. It's true. Your post will look pretty ridiculous if what TS says is true.

    Fury also said he is masturbating 7 times a day and soaking his hand in petrol 5 minutes a day to toughen them up! Don't believe 90% of what he says as that's him just selling the fight

    I'm not sure he'll be remembered as an ATG based on resume and skills, but he will probably be looked on fondly because of how entertaining he is. Massive power and killer instinct but also a degree of vulnerability, it makes for exciting fights. If we get an era of safety first jab and grabbers in a decade or two I can definitely imagine people being like "remember guys like Wilder?"

    Only if he beats Fury.....if he looses I can see him dropping away pretty quickly

    I suppose he has potential. He needs quite a few great wins though.

    That said, boxing historians and fans are reluctant to revisit "all time" lists. If a fighter's career began after 1980, historians don't want to give them a slot in the lists, for some reason.

    He's 34yo and got a gift decision against the only true contender he's ever faced.

    With his power he may have a longer career than most, but if he ages like most fighters time is running out to make his mark.

    Could be the defining fight. But no way it's the beginning of an era. Wilder turns 35 this year. More like the end of an era.

    Meh, is it really though? How deep was Marciano's resume? Or Frazier's? Or Holmes'?

    Some ATG heavyweights really only have one or two real standout wins.
