    He needs at least 1 or 2 more years.

    Guys like Lewis, Ngannou etc. are still a bit too much.

    He's a HW. He might even be overqualified.

    I think he'd beat Lewis.

    Wilder trained boxing for 2-3 years and destroyed guys with 10-15+ years and hundred of fights exp. but he never won gold (olympics).

    experience is important.

    Rozenstruik has shown in his fight against Overeem on very short notice that he will not "crack" under the pressure when Ngannou has shown in his fights against Stipe & Lewis that he will crack under the pressure.

    Ngannou even ducked Volkov, can't even take a fight on short notice unlike Rozenstruik who proved he can take his KO power into the 5th round on very short notice.

    I haven't been as excited for a HW prospect in a while.

    I'm not impressed by Jairzinho.

    Doesn't matter how many times you see that, it's really ugly and hurts to look at.

    Lol threads like these are borderline depressing for the sport.

    The HW division is so trash right now. It’s like all the top skilled 200+lbs athletes decided to take their talents to more lucrative sports around the late 2000’s and never looked back.

    We still have the shells of early 2000s fighters like Reem, AA, Hunt, Werdum, etc competing and have reloaded with out of shape brawlers with back problems like Lewis, a windmilling Ugandan, a guy who’s NEVER taken a grappling lesson in his life (Rozenstruik), and a guy who’s NEVER taken a striking lesson (Blaydes)....


    Outside of Stipe and DC HW has NOTHING!

    The fact that he made it to the Olympics is outstanding, let alone getting a bronze medal. There's people that train for years and years and never get anywhere close to qualifying.
