Not for me. AJ has a much better resume despite fighting for a shorter period regardless of the result

It’s AJ, Fury then Wilder in terms of top opponents

Fury will definitely out box Wilder for however long the fight lasts. He'll confuse Wilder by switch hitting, and use his 3 stone weight advantage in the clinch, lean on him and look to tire Wilder out. My concern is at some point Wilder will probably land clean which could end the fight in a flash.

AJ has 2 names on his cv, Fury and Wilder one each,.. therefore it's 100% better

Wlad and who is the 2nd name on AJ's CV?

I think if Fury wins he has 2 wins as good or better than anything AJ has

Plus a chisora KO which matches anything AJ has done bar Wlad.  I would say his hitlist would be clear cut better than AJ's, if wilder wins his CV would be marginally better than AJ's

You can add in Povetkin too. Parker is a bigger name than pretty much anyone outside of Wlad (Fury) or Ortiz (Wilder) as well.

Whoever wins tonight can probably claim to have a better CV than AJ, but they've both had twice as many fights. Wilder's record especially after 40 odd fights is shameful.

Any picks for the undercard? All seem like they'll be one way traffic so like everyone else, I'm picking Joyce, Ortiz and Hurd all by way of stoppage.

IT seems that way, Wilder has had about 4 fights pull out to drug test failures though.  Glad that this one is on

He certainly was, so the best 2 names on AJ's CV were 39 and 41 at the time. 

I guess everybody knows this era hasn't been the best, that's why tonights showdown is a bit special IMO

So one should brush off the fact that he is disgustingly homophobic and sexist with no desire from himself or the people around him to resolve the issue.

Problem with 4am fights is I'm never sure when to time the order for a kebab.

No idea who'll win this one which makes it interesting enough to me. Will go for Fury jabbing and hugging Wilder to a split decision.

If you're looking to be his mate then no you shouldn't. Otherwise it doesn't bother me at all. Hope he wins and then goes on to put the AJ hype train down.

I hope Wilder wins because I don't like Furys views at all and have no respect for that kind of thing. What I can respect is that mental health is no joke and that he seems not to have done all of the posturing many fighters seem to do, the fight seems to have been agreed pretty quickly which is good to see. I hate all the talks that become nothing agreed then both sides blaming one another and rinse, repeat.

Don't know if this has been answered but is there a boxing equivalent to the football highlight websites that doesn't show the result? Don't think I'll be able to stay awake to watch it live.

Jarrett Hurd v Jason Welborn. Expect Hurd to get rid of him easy.

And Luis Ortiz v Travis Kauffman, again should be a blowout.

Joe Joyce is a good British prospect also fighting tonight.

They both come across as utterly horrible human beings, Fury with his shitty views on the world, Wilder wanting to kill someone in the ring etc.

That being said, Fury is a Man Utd supporter so i'm hoping the bellend from the states knocks out the bellend from the UK.
