I think you are overlooking the Wlad fight here.
I think Wlad was past his best, had been beat by Fury in his previous fight which was a full year gap before he fought AJ.
Looks like you like AJ Kevin. Too do I . Im not saying I think he will or will not beat Tyson OR wilder. For me theres not a lot to choose between them. Tyson beat Wilder Saturday but could he do it again?? Dunno. Could he beat AJ?? Dunno. But we aren't gonna find out unless Hearn gets his finger out.

Wlad of Joshua is still comfortably better than Parker.

I'm suggesting he doesn't fight until Joshua/Wilder winner.
Only thing wrong with that Zico ,for me anyway, is that could be 2020 . Im pretty sure Whyte will get the April shot,I doubt Hearn and Wilders team will come to terms for the 2nd fight of 2019.
So whats Tyson gonna do in 2019? THIS year he got active. I was in the majority in thinking he needed at least ONE fringe contender to compete with Wilder,but the fact that he'd had a couple of lesser fights made me think he had a decent chance.
If he doesn't have a couple of fights next year I don't think that winner in 2020 after a year out would be a good idea.

I don't think you can comfortably say that Pedderrs. Also after watching the first round Saturday,had you worked out that Fury was gonna look to be ahead on the cards and that Wilder would put him down twice before the end and still look to have been robbed??

Naturally you disagree. You think Whyte is a match for AJ.

I don't think he'll fight anyone other than Wilder/Joshua next.

And you didn't answer my question. After the first round, how did you see the fight going??
I didn't answer the question because I didn't see the relevance mate.

Show me where I said that mate. I have said he could give him a fight and that Whyte winning wouldn't exactly be Buster Douglas beating Tyson.
You have suggested Whyte might beat AJ in a rematch and you have suggested here that he could give him a fight.

It sounds like you think Whyte is a match for AJ mate? What am I missing?

Neither do i. But that could mean a long period of inactivity.
Don't think inactivity is an issue, after Saturday all he needs is the goal of beating the winner, he's just done a year camp to beat Wilder, all he needs is to rest, to stay well and in shape IMO.

Of course he's a match Pedderrs. The last time they boxed he hurt AJ, who then came back to prove he was the better man on the night. Had Wilder come back to stop Fury HE would have been the better man on the night. In both cases in a return Fury might beat Wilder and I also think, though I don't think it likely,Whyte might beat AJ.
What I DONT consider a match is when Anthony Yarde,who is a good prospect, fights an Argentinian 4 inches shorter and 2 stone lighter. Thats the difference.
But I don't use the term "a match for..." Its a decent fight with either man having a chance of winning or a mismatch. Not a lot in between.

I disagree Zico,particularly where Tyson is involved. Not going to go into why because we both have our opinions and theres no right or wrong answers

I also think that right now this is a glaring opportunity for British Boxing to put itself at the forefront of World Boxing. If Joshua V Fury were to have TWO fights together possibly in the next year it would be significant. Get Whyte V Ortiz on too with the winner facing Usyk when he has had an introduction to Heavyweight, where would that leave Wilder and the WBC?

All eyes would be on the British Boxing scene, the vast majority of money would stay in the UK. Wilder would be forced to come here too, the World would see why Fury or Joshua wouldn't want to go to America for what it is.

It's a MASSIVE chance but will it be taken?

I honestly thought Fury was done when I watched those farcical comeback fights but he proved me to be completely wrong last night and on the evidence of last night he’ll school Joshua no problems.

AJ and Wilder have the same chance against Fury which is land one knockout shot on him otherwise they are both just getting their heads boxed off.

It’s clear he’s on another level in terms of Boxing skill.

I fucking love the big gypsy bastard as well. Never been so happy to be proven wrong in my life.
I would pick Fury to win on points too, but saying AJ and Wilder have the same chance is simply not true. AJ is a FAR better boxer than Wilder, and better up close too. He would apply more constant pressure off the back of 1-2's coming forward, and not telegraph every power shot like Wilder does. He would make Fury work and it would be harder for Fury to slip every shot. On the one hand, it could be easier for Fury, as there is less threat from the single shot, but on the other hand he won't have someone in front of him who is technically awful. I can't see how he would be expected to school Joshua "no problems"...he would be facing someone who is much stronger and technically sound than Wilder, who also hits hard (not as hard, but hard enough) and who would be less easy to read.

Hopefully Fury gets his rematch with Wilder first and wins that, then an all British unification bout would be class.

Great idea but to answer the question no.

Hmmm. Interesting thoughts. I’m not seeing this as the one sided schooling many are talking about.
I think a lot of yers are being blinded by their Hearn hatred.

50/50 in every sense for me. Split the purse and get Wembley booked for the Summer mofo’s.

Whyte landed a hail-mary punch on the ropes in desperation that momentarily buzzed AJ. That was the extent of his success.

Whyte has a chance of beating AJ in the same way Fielding has a chance of beating Canelo.
