    Default How confident are you that AJ will beat Wilder?

    As a percentage how confident are you that AJ will beat Wilder after the Helenius fight?

    I have always thought that AJ would beat Wilder, in fact I thought he would brutally knockout Deontay.

    Then after the defeats from Ruiz and Usyk I became less sure that AJ would win as Wilder was a champion making 10 defences of his title and his willingness to take brutal punishment from Tyson Fury in their 3rd fight.

    Deontay is more than a wild puncher but not technically as good as AJ. Both have fragile chins and have the power to knockout each other.

    So my answer is 55% AJ to win 45% Wilder
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    I favor Joshua over the latest Wilder I know. Would have loved to see Wilder show genuine interest and execution by taking a fight with say Jermaine Franklin. Or anyone with a pulse for that matter not named Fury over the last 4 years. He really didn't have an option on willingness to take punishment with Fury as it was coming one way or another . And the result remained the same...and far more costly in repeated fashion. I like the jab of AJ and subtle tweeks to ultimately unravel the latest Wilder. And no way Wilder goes in that inactive after finding his way out of a perfect contender fight with Ruiz. His mouth says one thing, but actions say something different.

    60-40 in favour of wilder.

    AJ could stop him and if it went distance everything says he'll get the UD. But he's hittable and I can't see wilder not connecting over twelve rounds and if he does it would likely be over.

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    This sounds about right to me. This fight will be the tale of two fragile egos. Joshua will have to walk through the fire to get to the range where his combos will be effective. Dangerous because Joshua gets caught by loopers (ruiz) but also those straight punches that pokes holes through his guard (vlad). This could be as easy as AJ slipping the jab and getting into mid range before wilders bread and butter shot leaves the barrel, keeping his right hand high to block the left hook and then counter to start his work on the inside. Eventually, he'll catch Wilder and hurt him. If Aj cant do that, just get inside, just lean on him till the old ghosts takes Wilder's legs and ego.
    The biggest train wreck comes after AJ scores a knock down. He can't afford to get overconfident and get clipped by Wilder like he has before. a shot from Wilder can end it. Wilder has the edge in resilience.
    They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.

    Who would pay to see it?

    They are both Div 2 Heavyweights, one humiliated by Fury, the other by Usyck.

    Sorry to sit on the fence.
