Looks like the fight isn't even gonna be a title defence anyway if these guys are actually being considered. I don't get it, all I can think is they have serious reservations regarding their belief in Wilder's durability when matching him up versus some of the top 15 guys. Have the WBC rules changed to top 20 for an optional defence ?
Maybe it is in fact a pre emtive move to stoke interest in the consequence Fury does in fact beat the champ, interesting match up all the same. Hughie is probably more rounded at this stage than Wilder was before the Stiverne fight, he has power of his own, nothing of the sort whereby he could be considered heavy handed for his weight class but enough to make Wilder think twice about opening up without hesitation like in his earlier fights.
It's a fight I think Fury should take, I don't think he would be knocked out. I think you could make a good case for him winning too.
I've been watching GGG since before the Ishida fight, two of the guy he beat Fuchigama I think and Simon, whom had never been stopped before and GGG blasted him in one, I was paying special attention then. Ive watched a lot of K2 cards yknow. This hype explosion does him a dis service. He needs to get real like his fans and move up to 168 for a challenge where his power can be taken and he can fight in a competitive fight. I know all the money fights are guys he needs to stick around at 160 for, but even then he ain't getting a fight he wants a 160, you think Cotto or Canelo are fighting him ?
