    Don't be surprised to see Haye trying to muscle himself in contention (with his mouth, not his fists obviously).

    I have been following the big undefeated HW Luis Ortiz for years. I would love to see a scrap between him and Wilder, but I know it may be high risk. Ortiz is similar to Wilder, a huge, undefeated heavyweight with big ko power. Unfortunately, Luis tested positive for steroids in last fight and his first real step up in competition when he demolished Lateef Kayode. I still think he can be a big factor in the current hw scene.

    Too soon. Joshua needs a few more fights and experience first. He's only had 10 contests as a pro (compared to Wilders 33), let him get to at least 15.

    They didn't. Ward faced different stylistic challenges, whereas it seems that a lot of Wilder's education has been in the gym.

    hes a good fighter, i picked stiverne to beat him, i was wrong. he can go the distance, he can take a punch, he can punch, and he can box, he has a chance against wlad.

    Get off the Arreola wagon...he is just not a worthy challenger.

    A heavyweight champion should NEVER be on someone else's card....they are there dominant fighter in the world and to be on someone undercard diminishes the title greatly.

    I saw no footwork in the Stiverne fight.. fortunately for him Stiverne literally just followed him around the ring and didn't cut it off at all. I see Povetkin, hell even Fury beating Wilder.

    Wilder isn't the dominant heavyweight though, so moot point.

    The reason he won't be fighting on undercards any time soon is because Wilder/Stiverne did good numbers for two guys that aren't established headliners. (Though I think it also speaks to the fact that there are around one million or so HBO subscribers that will tune in if they think it's a decent fight and/or promoted well.) If the numbers had been significantly lower then being the co-feature beneath a bigger fight wouldn't have been a bad move.

    No head movement for most of the fight either. He literally stood there and let Wilder 2 piece him a bunch of times.
