Deontay Wilder still a raw fighter but powerful enough to beat most heavyweights
By Marcus Richardson: Deontay Wilder (26-0, 26 Ko’s) showed both potential and flaws in his game last Saturday night in his 3rd round destruction of Kelvin Price (13-0, 6 KO’s) at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. It’s no doubt that Wilder looked to be missing a few important pieces in his game.
His jab is still little more than a weak pawing range fighter type jab, which is useless a weapon to dominate his shorter opponents. Wilder didn’t use his left hand much at all against Price, and it just seems he hasn’t worked on it enough for him use it in a fight.
Wilder’s work rate wasn’t good, and that’s a definite problem he’s going to have to fix in the future. Wilder lacked balance in his offense. All he had was his right hand, and that’s about it. Wilder is going to have to work on these many flaws if he wants to beat the better fighters in the division because he’s not going to be able to knock all of them out with his right hand.
I think Wilder is still going to be able to beat most of the top heavyweight contenders even in his current form. I know that’s hard to believe but you have to realize how big the guy and how powerful he is. He only showed a small amount of what he can with his power last Saturday night against Price because Wilder was fighting nervous and not letting his hands go like he normally does. When Wilder lets his hands go he can knockout anyone in the division. If you put him in with a more skilled guy, Wilder may look bad at first but his power is going to even out the score and make up for his lack of skills.
