    I see what you mean. Both sports use a lot of semantics. I do find those nuances entertaining.

    But MMA fight would be even more uneven. Stipe could last a few rounds in a boxing ring, maybe, while Deontay would last seconds in the octagon.

    Nobody you know doesn't mean nobody. It just means you don't know them. I'm not even an avid boxing fan, so I don't know a bunch of the names either. I get that boxing pads records.

    It's one thing to beat 39 cans. It's entirely different to KO all but 1 of them. Like I said before, he doesn't have the prettiest form, but he can crack for sure. If any of the UFC heavies are bold enough to step into the boxing ring with him, Deontay would gladly add them to his KO list.

    If anyone in the UFC or in MMA in general had the skills to compete in boxing at the highest level, they would be boxing, not getting kicked in the face, kneed in the gut or getting choked out for chump change.

    P.S. I stand corrected: Deontay fought Bermane Stiverne twice. He didn't KO him the first time, but KTFO'd him the 2nd time. BTW, Bermane was previously the WBC champ from 2014-2015. I guess any nobody could hold that title, so that's not very impressive.

    Wilder should just train wrestling for a couple months and fight Ngannou in the UFC.

    -Gets huge money.

    -In the event he gets submitted, no damage to his boxing career, and the push might actually be enough to force the Joshua fight anyway. And he could hype it up and talk enough shit that Francis would know that he'd look bad going for subs.

    -If he wins, Joshua fight definitely happens, and is bigger than it ever would have been.

    At exactly what point did that happen? Ngannou landed a few times but it never looked like he even rocked Stipe. Stipe didn't wrestle him because he "almost got murdered", he did it because Ngannou was clueless on what to do and it's an easy risk free way to win.

    Why don’t they fight him in the cage? Cowards.

    Stipe's only chance to make some real money is to fight Joshua or Wilder. But Dana would probably refuse to let him.

    After Cormier, who else is there for him?

    This is what I'm saying. America has no respect for it's heavy weight champ. I don't get it. He's a ko artist and a big mouth shit talker. What the fuck is there promoter doing? Why isn't he on Conan or Kimmel? I've only ever seen him on Radio, Hot 97 and Sway. That's the same level as Might Mouse promotion.

    You’re delusional. He has fought nobody at all, he is circa 1/100 odds to win in all his bouts.

    He has power, but if you put him in with even Dillian Whyte, he’d struggle.

    Probably because anyone with a brain and a basic knowledge of Boxing knows that he is shite.

    If he had been doing this to Klitscho / Joshua or even Haye / Whyte he would be a huge name.

    Nobody outside or inside the US knows who he is. Eddie Hearn offered him Dillain Whyte, which he could’ve taken for circa 3-5m, beaten and set up a huge fight with AJ. His team bottled it because they know if he loses then his big pay day opportunity has gone.

    Hopefully AJ beats Parker handily whilst Wilder beats Ortiz, then we can see AJ vs Deontay, which will be a drubbing.

    I will probably bet on Ortiz to go the distance with Wilder.
