Fan’s Predictions For Deontay Wilder Against 28 'Heavyweight Greats' Sparks Outrage With Boxing Community
A fan has caused outrage online after predicting Deontay Wilder's chances against boxing legends and former stars.

And the wide-ranging list includes legendary fighters like Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Joe Louis and Rocky Marciano.
According to Genug, Wilder would have secured a 12th-round KO victory over Ali and also knocked out the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Joe Frazier and Marciano.

However, fans are baffled at how the Reddit user backed Wilder to KO Ali in a dream fight.
One Reddit user responded: "wilder couldnt hit tyson fury but you think he'll hit muhammad ali? this is 100% a joke post wilders a big guy w decent speed who can hit very hard. if heavyweight wasnt a complete s**t show he'd be getting picked apart regularly. only fury would have a chance in bygone eras [sic]."
While IndecentGargoyle said: "What is this fantasy shopping list."
User stringycheeze suggested: "Have 'The Greatest' being KO'd in 12th? I mean he was hitable, but I see him dancing around Wilder."
And a fourth user added: "Patterson had a glass chin so the idea he would go 12 rounds with wilder is puzzling to say the least."
