At world level AJ has been mediocre. He beat the old man Wladimir after going life and death and looks ordinary against trained midgets like Takem and Ruiz

Nonsense thread.

Taking aside their meeting, Joshua has fought a better level of opponents than Fury or Wilder.

Here's hoping that the politics & commercial constraints can be overcome to make the unification this year.

Meh I think his resume is perfectly fine tbh.

Fury needed that wilder win last night but fair play to him he got it

Wlad- Over the Hill
Parker-Coming off a loss from Hughie
Ruiz- 20 stone and hadn't trained
Takam- weeks notice
Povetkin- 38 Years old and off the drugs
Martin- LOL!

Yep so much better mate

Its not a bad resume, Wilders is a disgrace, absolutely awful for a guy who held a belt for 5 years, they did a fantastic job creating the illusion of a monster with him because seemingly even long time people in the know were falling for it, despite the clearly carefully selected opposition that he still managed to go life and death with, it was insane to watch how many bought into it, including himself most of all!

Joshua's record is generally solid with some very good wins on there. The knock on Joshua is that he has not fought the two top guys of his era - Fury and Wilder. He needs to fight these guys
I agree mate just replicating the same thread that Hkbrit made about Fury. AJ has a decent resume but it isn't as good as Furys

Is Wilder's that bad?

Yeah, he's fought some dross but it's not as bad as some make out.

Fury

Ortiz

Is a solid enough top end if you blame Wilder and AJ equally for the fight not being made.

Stiverne in 15 wasn't a bad fight to be honest wasn't he also due to fight Povetkin?

Malik Scott win was decent too, let's not forget Scott won nearly every round against Chisora up until the stoppage of I remember right.

Except Scott blatantly took a dive and Stiverne had beaten..Arreola and..? Not even a prime Arreola, Charles Martin might have a better resume !

So he has one victory over a top contender in geriatric Ortiz without the PEDs and we're going to call Joshuas resume unacceptable?

1) I didn't mention Joshua's resume.

2) I think we are discussing the willingness of different fighters to fight the best opposition out there. Wilder has fought top 4 ranked opponents 4 times. So I asked if his resume was that bad. It's certainly not great.

3) I'm amazed that needed explaining.

An obvious cherrypick on a cokeheaded fat as fuck Fury who had been out forever so depressed he was almost committing suicide and looked fucking dreadful in his two comback victories does not count as fighting a top opponent, it was a shameful cheerypick gone wrong, he's just so awful that he couldn't even get the job done then and when Fury came back closer to 100 percent he beat him up so badly he may have ended Wilders career as a "top" fighter.

Ortiz was a top 4 contender when Wilder fought him the first time, not the second time

So he's fought two top ranked opponents and beaten one of them, yeah, it's THAT bad, I'm amazed that needed explaining

Abysmal post.

Highlights were Ortiz going life and death in the first fight with the consensus number 1 or 2 and actually moving down from 4 on the back of it :lol:

And you summing up by admitting that, even in your horrendous take, Wilder has still fought more top 4 opponents than Joshua :lol:

Away with you.

Hes beaten ONE top contender, and couldn't even beat Tyson Fury at ten percent, that's his 43 fight legacy, he's been pro over ten years, Joshua fought far better competition than Wilder that's ludicrous to suggest otherwise, Ortiz lost to Wilder who I predicted him to lose to despite my feelings on Wilders shortcomings and the weaknesses of Ortiz. because I could see just how overrated he was especially without the PEDS, Predicted a Wilder KO both times, and considering my feelings on Wilder, it shows you how much Ortiz was overrated and ancient with his molasses feet

Parker, Wlad, Povetnik, Martin (who poleaxed Washington as easy as Wilder did ), Ruiz, Takam and beating them kind of beats ancient Ortiz times 2 and going life and death, and Tyson Fury the ghost being able to still beat him but suffer a robbery, then beats the shit out of him the next time, he LOST those fights ater trying to cherrypick an easy Fury the first time


Lets even say you're right, Ortiz was a top contender after Wilder polaxed him the first time, That's 3 top fighters he faced but he beat the same one twice and got annihilated in the other by a guy not considered and aggressive fighter

He's beaten ONE top contender

So how good is that in a 43 fight career spanning over a decade fighting weak opposition and holding a belt for 5 years

His resume is awful
