Good to get it done with Fury having swerved an immediate return. And given the limited options at the time, it's a decent fight to take. And Wilder will want another highlight reel KO win well inside distance to steady the ship after Fury got up, which this fight will give him.

Should be a fun fight while it lasts. Breazeale is game and has a puncher's chance.
Yes agreed. Nice to see some fights where people try to bring it to Wilder and have a shot at unsettling him. Still a comfortable KO for Wilder, though. Which means this delay has more chance of hyping him for the rematch than it does Fury!

Glad this might happen as its Whyte's fault we got AJ vs Miller, Whyte is in his prime he should have just took the AJ fight, if he wasnt happy with the rematch clause he could have just kept faking injuries to avoid it

If we get Whyte vs Ortiz then this has all worked out well

Breazeale has a much, MUCH better chance of upsetting Wilder than Miller does upsetting Joshua, Breazeale is big tough crude and gets all of his gigantic bodyweight behind every punch and he WILL trade, considering how open Wilder is when he starts swinging and his dodgy chin, Breazeale could easily deck him

Yeah, I'm expecting a bit of a war. Breazeale can take a punch and give one, he brings size and power to the table.

Agree with all of this, other than I think Wilder has shown he has a chin that is at least a level above 'dodgy' at this point :yep

Legit bad blood between these two from the incident with Wilder & his goons allegedly harassing Breazeale's family. Just the two of them in the ring now & I expect that Wilder will lay him out within 6.

Nothing against Breazeale; he seems a decent guy, but whenever I see him I can't help thinking about the robbery that he benefited from against hard luck Fred Kassi.

I wonder if wbc will sanction this as a mandatory given the mandatory slot was to be determined after the whyte brazeale fight

Brazeale is big, strong and keeps his hands up under extreme pressure but he is also slow, has zero lateral movement and zero head movement. Based on his first showing against Joshua I can't see him troubling him too much in a rematch.

Finkel update:

“We’re hoping to get it done. Hopefully, it will happen this week or next week and hopefully it’s done. At this point it’s not done. But I think Breazeale is a competitive and viable opponent.”

I like Brezeale too. When people were saying he was rubbish on this forum I pointed out the fact that he was a heavyweight and the qualities he DOES have would take him a fair way, but not as far as the championship. Thats why if he fought AJ again he'd do no better I think. He might give Wilder a better fight but I don't think hell win. Miller on the other hand hasn't boxed AJ yet so we don't really. know how far he will push him. I suspect hell give him a better fight than did Brezeale. As said Im looking at the odds for AJ points as @TheBoxingMadMan picks.
BTW Wilder comes in for a lot of criticism on both forums I go on but lets give him a bit of credit for getting back in the ring after 5 MONTHS. Also credit AJ for going away to fight what I see as an unknown quantity who might present a tough challenge.
The guy who I see as possibly the best out of the BIG THREE is only talking about fighting. If he actually took that interim fight they're talking about in June or July we might see him fighting one of the champions at the end of the year hopefully.
