Bryant Jennings Tabs Deontay Wilder To Beat Anthony Joshua

By Steve Kim

So if they were to fight next, who would heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings pick between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, who are considered the two best big men in boxing?

Jennings, who fights Alexander Dimitrenko on Saturday as the headliner on ESPN from Atlantic City, told BoxingScene.com - "Right now, I would favor Wilder because Wilder takes more chances. Joshua pretty much relies on his technical abilities, which he's still learning and growing."

Wilder may not be as technically refined as Joshua but he has explosive power and the ability to come back at anytime because of his punching prowess, believes Jennings.

"I think that if you wait a little too long then you're messing with Wilder, Wilder's going to go for the fences, regardless if it's ugly, cute. So he's going to take more chances and he has the power to make them ugly chances turn into a successful turnout," Jennings said.

Joshua, who holds the IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO belts is scheduled to defend his titles on September 22nd against Alexander Povektin. While Wilder is reportedly close to finalizing a deal to take on Tyson Fury in the fall. Wilder will be ringside for Fury's fight against Francesco Pianeta on Saturday night in Belfast.

In a prior article on BoxingScene, Jennings tabbed Wilder as the biggest puncher in the weight division - but saw Joshua as the biggest name at the weight.

"Who's the best heavyweight in the world?'' said Jennings, as he contemplated that question. "Now we've got to come up with different aspects, the different aspects of the game.

"So the best power I would say (Deontay) Wilder. The best technical person would be (Luis) Ortirz. The brightest star would be Anthony Joshua and the most slept on would be myself."
