    Taking TDs out of the equation? Fun question.

    Could Francis stand and trade bombs? (although it is probably first to land big wins).

    Is it Jon Jones? He could play the range game and avoid overhands whilst kicking the shit out of him? Wilder isn't known for his incredible technique on the feet.

    Maybe a curveball like Blagoy Ivanov with his Terminator skull?

    Or perhaps Rumble Johnson?

    Or absolutely no one?

    Why even talk about boxing matches in an mma forum?

    You only use 25% of your weapons in the sport of boxing.

    Nah I'm just curious whose skillset in UFC would give Deontay most problems in a fight using all weapons, 90% would just take him down but that's not itneresting.

    in terms of the current ufc roster, the fighter with the best chance of beating deontay wilder in a boxing match would be overeem.

    He's a windmill who relies entirely on the straight right or right hook. Wish Lennox Lewis was in his prime right now, he would've wiped out Wilder, Joshua and Fury

    Is Tyson Fury in the UFC yet?

    If so, then him.

    Joshua is a non entity. Just got waxed off a superior fighter and the same thing will happen next month. Just in round 9-12 this time.

    The only real good boxer at hw is miocic wich is also a good boxer in general and i can't see him do anything against wilder
    (without wrestling obviously).

    I think that for ngannou would be a baptism/rude wake up.

    JDS is a decent boxer. Obviously flying very close to washed-ville though.

    Wilder is a scary mofo, scarier than tyson imo. Tyson was always calculated but ferocious wilder legit looks like hes trying to put them in a coma

    I would have agreed with that a few years ago, until he started throwing shitty overhand strikes with no set-up at all. He basically gave Ngannou an easy win after throwing such a stupid strike
