in the after fight interviews he came out with all sort of shit about being messed up coming into the fight, carrying injuries, a leg, and now he can say his ear or eyes are fucked and he can bow out on doctors advice a rich man

or he can wait for AJ being stripped a belt if he don't keep doing the mandatories - Pulev followed by Usyk should be his next two and he has had discretions before so if a belt becomes vacant...

then again, not counting the knockdowns Fury won every round in the first fight and was still robbed and duffed him up for 7 this time - can't see Wilder wanting it again as he knows he cannot box for shit but we can never guess what money that big might do

Looking at Deontay's record, his list of opponents until Fury was more like a "who's that?" than a who's who.

His 32nd fight was against a bum so obscure that he doesn't even have a Wikipedia page. The one opponent aside from Fury that had any pedigree whatsoever was an ageing Luis Ortiz who outboxed him twice only to get caught by Wilder's single asset, his punching power.

The myth of Deontay Wilder got exposed. He built up a résumé by knocking out cherry picked third and fourth tier fighters. Although he did beat the legend Audley Harrison.

Most of his opponents had their sponsors logos on the soles of their shoes.

That said, I thought boxers were disqualified for pinching.

Wilder talking a good game, but will get smashed again, should he take up the option of the 3rd fight.

Watched Khalid Yafai the weekend, who apparently is our longest reigning World champion. Super flyweight, 8 stone ffs.
He got absolutely destroyed by some 32 year old. Battered from pillar to post.
