Round and about
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.
I like AJ/Miller and Wilder/Brazil. I think both will be fun fights, and in the latter the animosity is very real.

I'm not really interested in watching Fury so I couldn't care less who he fights. He bores me outside of the ring and even more so inside it (I know he has skills but let's be honest he's no Mayweather).

No he's not despite what people say. But he's probably the best boxer in the division. My feeling about his future is that he won't fight until the end of this year when the Wilder return will probably be on.

I don't rate Breazeale - too basic of a fighter. He is, however, better since the AJ fight and is durable enough to withstand most of Wilder's onslaught to get in a few decent moments of his own.

If Wilder blows him out of the water, I'll be impressed.

I dont think he's really improved Rico. Just think AJ was far and away his best opponent. I could see him doing a bit better against Wilder,and THEN getting blown out of the water. Of course, that doesn't mean AJ beats Wilder easy. The big three are about on a par for me. Pity they're not fighting each other.

That PPV is going to flop, Wilder is either going to catch Breazeae cold early or Breazealle will have a few moments but will get him late

PPV, wtf!? Wilder/Fury made 300K which was respectable, but it was on the back of a good amount of ESPN coverage. No one knows who the hell Breazeale is. I think 100K would probably be good numbers for this one.

It’s hard to believe that we live in a world where Dominic Brezeale will have headlined PPV’s both sides of the Atlantic

Yeah, you could be right. Maybe he hasn't improved.

I suppose this situation we're in (for the HW division) is to be expected. It's a very weak one, and so understandably each of its champions (the top 3 guys) will be in fights (for the remainder of 2019) that I'll care very little for. Because at this point, I'm not even expecting Wilder-Fury II after Fury's first fight with ESPN.
