It's all about opinions, but I think Wilder would batter Joshua within 3-4 rounds at most. I think AJ would be terrified of Wilder's punching power from the off, and would be on the back foot immediately. On your point about size, it does seem an era where they're all giants.

Anybody going for a Franklin win tonight, bookies are offering odds of 17/2.

That's a decent price.

You may well be right. I'd like to see them fight, though, would be a more interesting fight than AJ v Fury.

That was certainly a performance from a boxer who's lost his last two fights.

And only two KO wins in his last eight fights, stretching back five years. Not great for a heavyweight whose main asset is power.

AJ wasnít great was he, a very reserved performance. He looks like he lacks basic aggression.

Far from a classic. Joshua looks more like Audley Harrison with every fight.

Gal Yafai's just being introduced.
I didn't see any of boxing, well not a lot 12th and final round of AJ fight. Wasn't really remotely interested but i am certainly interested in young Gal.
Did he win!
Did he do well??

Not a great trait in a boxer.

Fourth round stoppage. He looked impressive.

I didn't watch much of it but it looked like a safety first approach, he just didn't want to get suckered so he never really committed to throwing massive shots himself. I reckon the Ruiz fight is the one that's taken the fight out of him more than Usyk.
