Washington wouldn't be "the next coming" if a Brit. We have plenty of heavyweights/fighters with sexy records - Gary Cornish, Tom Dallas, Dave Allen, Larry OBoots etc - who are never seen as future world beaters, because the ultimate proof is seeing them fight not looking at records. The same goes for Washington - he's not bad but an obvious ex-American football player that came to boxing late.
British fighters like AJ and Price were decorated amateurs before turning pro. Guys like Chisora and Fury made their name by steadily having success as they moved up in class - area, continental, commonwealth, British, European - before proving themselves at world level. Whyte was a nobody but hit the jackpot by beating AJ in the amateurs, then put his money where his mouth is and made a name for himself.
On this forum only ross thinks Hughie Fury is the second coming.
3-Time SADDO PREDICTION COMP CHAMPION.
Wilder has boxed awful opposition since becoming the titleholder (and before then too). So has Joshua.
Tyson Fury, to be fair to him, at least beat Klitschko for the title.
The lack of depth and quality in the heavyweights is mainly to blame for this. There are probably only 4 or 5 good heavyweights out there, and having multiple belts just exposes that shallowness.
wishful thinking, but if there was only one champion, we may get some more exciting matchups going forward instead of this bum of the year roadshows that they have to do at the moment.
If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
Washington is a better opponent than Wawrzyk. Although it still seems like a very safe opponent choice.
watched a few of his fights and hes not exactly a skilful fighter, in fact his style is pretty poor
but I suppose Wilder isn't much better in that department
Officially the only saddo who has had a girlfriend
I think the Breazeale vs Ugonoh fight on the undercard will be interesting.
