    The only way Wonderboy VS Usman happens is if Usman loses against Colby and he has to fight Wonderboy to get a titleshot.

    Seriously, that's the ONLY way this fight ever happens. Period.

    The delusion is strong with him, Wondecan would get destroyed by usman.

    Trying to talk his way into another title fight instead of earning it. Can't blame him tbh.

    Thompson thinks he's a threat to Usman because he believes Usman won't try to just hold him there like Burns did....Lol

    Usman will do the exact same thing Burns did.

    My boy needs to let it go. He's had a couple of chances and couldn't get it done. Take a couple of fun fights and bow out while he still looks good. Been a hell of a martial arts career. Don't need to end up like brother in law Weidman.

    I don't see it happening.

    Wonderboy will need 2 or 3 wins to get another shot. He'll be 40 by the time that happens.

    Good to hear. The Burns fight would have been interesting over 5 rounds. I had the Impression Burns used a lot of energy not really doing too much damage.
    Wonderboys best round was his last but he can't rely on Usman reacting to the crowd disappointment if he gets held down.
    Wonderboy showed he has defence off of his back and I don't think Burns gets the credit he deserves.
    A couple of wins, Wonderboy is right back in the mix. He was hardly destroyed as Burns fought cynically to get the W.

    Hopefully Burns gets his due respect, people were trying to use the blown up LW narrative, but he's arguably the best WW in the division outside of Usman.

    Wonderboy doesn't have much time left, he'll need a big win or two to put himself back into the title conversation, he'll need to fight again this year and win big if he wants any hope of a title shot down the road.

    Usman will destroy both Burns and Thompson

    I know I'm in the minority but I think Wonderboy posed the greatest threat to Usmans newfound love with stand up. I'd still be down for it.

    He’s ranked #4 at WW…..he needs another top W and he’s right back in the mix.

    Already holds wins over Mas and Luque as well.

    Maybe. Let's say Usman fights Colby, then Leon and then Burns then maybe it might happen if Usman doesn't retire

    Wonderboy will definitely be over 40 by then

    He should move up and get a win and hopefully fight for the MW title. Him vs Izzy would be incredible to watch. He’s already knocked out the #1 contender at MW.
