Joshua and Wilder's fight is scheduled on the 22nd of Feb. Wilder may have a big mouth but he has backed it up twice as much as Joshua. The British fighter has 22 fights on his record while Wilder has 42, showing that no matter who it is, he will put his body and pride on the line to prove that he is the best. Also, Wilder never underestimated a 10-1 underdog to get beat.

What are your guesses who will win this fight?

Is this a parody? Wilder has 20 more fights because he's been a pro 4 years longer and in that time he's fought two top 10 fighters and only managed to beat one.

Joshua has fought more top 10s in half the time, if he was on the Wilder timeline he'd just now in his career be getting ready to fight Charles Martin in his first title fight.

Joshua ahead 6-0 until Wilder lands a windmill right hand to which the ghost of Harry Carpenter yells "Joshua's career is certainly over!"

If this was before the first Ruiz fight I'd say Joshua all day long with his big win over Klitschko showing he can take a punch, get up and rally to win, and did so by KO in that fight.

However, and there is a however, his showing against Ruiz in their first fight left me wondering how the hell did he let that happen to him with that fat-assed, half-assed Mexican checking his chin and finding enough china in it to make him quit.

No doubt in my mind if Joshua connects solid on Wilder, he can have him stepping in post holes, but the same can be said the other way around.

I'll go out on a limb and make my decision with my heart instead of my head and say Joshua finds a way to stop Wilder. I've seen Wilder hurt by much lesser fighters in the past and that is the reason for my pick being Joshua.

I'd pick the Joshua that fought Wlad to beat him. Maybe even the Joshua from Ruiz I. But the Joshua that fought Parker and Ruiz II not so much. Too careful.
If only there was a heavyweight Salido to pressure and smother him. Bury your head in his chest and Wilder would be absolutely nowhere IMO.

Wilder starts favourite at the moment, but it's hard to have confidence in the result with two huge punchers who are also deeply flawed fighters.

I would need to wait until it was closer to the fight happening before I could make a prediction.

Joshua isn't as deeply flawed as Wilder imo. I also think both guys' chin is fine. You don't take bombs from Klitschko like Joshua did if you have a shit chin. As for Ruiz Jr., even Parker refused to trade with him.

As a Joshua fan the Ruiz fight has made me nervous for the considerable future, although my gut tells me it will go down as an example of a night where literally everything just went wrong for Joshua rather than an indicator of future form.

Paddy Power has AJ and Evens and Wilder at 4/5. So looks like the market favours DW but only marginally. Obviously this sites rabid Anti AJ community have him with almost no chance. I favour AJ 55/45. I think his superior skills will mean that AJ has a good chance of stopping Wilder before he gets the envitable Right hand. I'd say AJ probably needs to win the first 5-6 rounds as it will be hard to keep Wilder from getting an opportunity to unleash the right hand for longer than that.
