Your crazy cshel, Wilder is not Floyd in this situation because he's not the A side. Joshua got 4 belts, a solid fan base and can actually sell.
Wilder got one belt and can't sell out half a stadium. But your right this is may-pac all over again so it's all a show to me right now and honestly Wilder ain't guaranteed to knock him out. We've expected this so many times from so many boogie men and the other guy pulled it out. Yeah Josh went down but he got back up and did his thing!
Let that Young Man cook
Wilder ain't had to get up as a pro and if I remember right he struggled with an old man too.....(sips long island)
At the end of the day they gonna show us who can handle the pressure under the bright lights
I see your point, and yes, I know Wilder isn't the A-side here. I compared him to Floyd in regards to whom is taking the blame for the fight not happening. Hearn is just yapping and acting like the fight is close, but what does he do? He pulls a Bob and basically tells us that AJ's next two opponents are already lined up. Smh
As far as Wilder not being able to sell out half a stadium, why such a low blow, AZ? Lol. Compared to AJ, Wilder isn't the biggest seller when you're talking about huge 60-100k seat stadiums, but Wilder packs out his hometown (AL) and the Barclays....he's done this consistently. My thing is, any ticket sales between 10k-20k seats here in the U.S. is a huge deal.
Yes, AJ is the bigger star....in his country. We've seen this before with UK fighters specifically. They can lose one fight after another and still pack out arenas and stadiums in their country. They can fight tomato cans and do the same, so yes, AJ has more options in his country....options that his people embrace (tomato cans) but an American fighter wouldn't be so forgiven for fighting.
I'm not a hater....Ima let AJ cook, but he can't have 3 belts and think it's cool to fight pushovers when the world wants to see an undisputed HW champ. He has 3 belts now....no more baby steps.
