A decent ref would halt Wilder in his step his shots land round the back of the head most of the tine

People make too much about Wilder's right hand, as if it's so much more powerful than other HW fighter's power. Against top fighters he could easily get KO'ed himself.

No one disputes that, and much of that is down to his own mediocre skills leaving himself wide open for counters. Pretty much everyone in the heavyweight division has knockout power (maybe not Hughie Fury) but Wilder has that spark knockout power.

Wilder has one punch KO power. AJ has power but he doesn't put guys to sleep with one shot. His opponents tend to get back up.

Yeah, and the long list of low ranked punching bags he's fought has helped enhance it. Joshua's punch power would be talked about in the same way if he had fought the same fighters Wilder has.

I suppose if AJ used the less skilful windmill technique it would have a similar result.

Fury will outbox wilder IMO

Fury should beat Wilder comfortably on points. If he gets hit with shots he sees then he should roll with them. Wilder will always have that chance with that big punch that Fury just doesn’t see coming.

Freddie Roach has been heavily involved with Fury's camp

I didn't know that, has it been in the press? I think I saw Roach rates Fury but not that he has a role in his training. Bodes well.
