Why?

 

It's part of the reason he gases early.

 

If Wilder is a bigger puncher, and has a better chin, then why is looking like more of a body builder and advantage?

 

 

None of which is true but keep believing that if you want....

The aftermath of AJ fights on here are more entertaining than the boxing. 

“Your talking crap” on the one hand and “Fuck off Dockers you old crumb” on the other.

 

A mixed bag of quality, in full.

Povetkin and Parker are not as good as Ortiz

Based on what? Other than Wilder who beat him, his toughest opponent is basically Barry from the local chip shop.  He hasn't even reached the stage of fighting eastern European plumbers.  He's just tricky because of his Southpaw stance and thats it.

 

Just go look at his record and then come back and tell me one decent opponent he has ever beaten?  Just one...  Il be waiting.

I don't have a strong opinion either way. They're both big punchers, and pretty ordinary boxers. I'm just not convinced Joshua's turtle stomach is going to give him the edge.

It’s a bit mad really. I don’t know what people want from him. He’s always in entertaining fights, beats whatever’s put in front of him usually with devastating KOs and is clearly the best heavyweight on the planet. Yes, he’s flawed and I understand the desire to see Eddie Hearn’s cash cow take a beating but can’t we just enjoy something for what it is sometimes? A bloody good, charismatic, entertaining fighter.

And what have the other two done

 

Parker scrapped past Takem, was shite against Whyte

Povetkin has been crap since his drugs ban, was very lucky to get past Price

Keep it to ya self me old muckah *taps nose*

I do kind of agree. I do however think he's vulnerable but that makes his fights even more interesting.

The hate for Joshua on here is fucking hilarious. He will smash Wilder, who’s only half decent fight has been against Ortiz. I don’t understand why people rate Wilder so highly but slag off Joshua.

Well I’m not really sure what a crumb is in fairness but I take it it’s a negative?

Depends.

The same Whyte who Joshua also beat.  The same Povetkin who has only ever been beaten once and that was by a prime Klitschko. And never been ko'd before.....  Face the facts, Joshua's record is second to none from this current lot of heavyweights.

 

Wilder hasn't even come close to fighting anyone close to Joshua's class.  And if they ever do fight, Joshua will knock him spark out when Deontay starts windmilling and leaving himself wide open as usual....

I fear for Lee if AJ beats Wilder.

Couldn't care less if he does

It's pretty much a 50/50 fight

 

I just can't be doing with the normal overhype of AJ(or any british fighter), the media spin and that smug cunt Hearns grin when he has milked another shit tonne of millions for what is really close to the best fighters in the world. 

 

I'm no fan of Wilder i would just like to see the face on Hearn if/when AJ gets beat and he sees the money train coming crashing to a end. 

 

Heavyweight boxing if competitive but a joke in class terms

So your desire to see Joshua beaten , or at least your ambivalence towards him is a projection of your hatred for Hearn? bizarre, Hearn has more money than he can spend in several lifetimes, Joshua losing won’t alter that.

if Joshua gets bonfired Hearn simply moves on to his next golden egg,  We’ve not had anybody this good since Lewis, just enjoy him, that’s my pennysworth anyway.

I don't really know anything about boxing, so my thoughts on Joshua are pretty simple.

 

On the one hand, I admire how he took a big hit from Klitschko but got up and went on to win the fight.

 

On the other, he hangs around with Tony Bellew and so deserves any kicking he gets.
