Fury can punch back as well. It would be more interesting to see Wilder take punches. Pianeta fight would be just as interesting. Pianeta has been fighting live ones.

Wilder is not thinking anything about it.. HIs management team is selecting his opponents. Their philosophy is going slow and building a gaudy record, and they think this will give Wilder a chance to perfect his skills against guys who present no danger.. Cus D’Amato’s philosophy was to drive a kid to a title shot as fast as humanly possible, by getting him as many fights as he can possibly handle, and as fast as he can handle them.. “If your kid isn’t fighting or training he’s getting himself into trouble. If they don’t have a world title, you have to get them fights, fights, and more fights, and against tough guys who will give them rounds. If the fight lasts 3 punches that’s not experience.”

Who is hating here bro? Everyone is admiring that be is a big talent but so far he proved absolutely nothing by fighting bums!

What is Wilder thinking by continuing to fight guys like McCreary? Like the author says it’s going to be quick work for Wilder but it won’t prove anything. Despite winning an Olympic Bronze, Wilder had limited amateur experience, and I understand bringing him up slowly; but he has definitely proven he’s ready for stiffer competition. He’s an excellent athlete and learned the sport quickly, test the water my man. Nobdy wants to see another Micheal Grant, Lou Savarese, Shannon Briggs, and David Rodriquez. These are all guys who built up glossy records fighting hobos but faltered when they got in deep. (Rodriguez is still fighting hobo’s as well)

TARK your comparisons make no sense. Boswell and Chagaev were facing better comp after 25 fights, as have virtually every credible heavyweight prospect. And the question is not whether Fury would accept a fight with Wilder, it’s whether Wilder would propose that fight when Fury doesn’t already have a fight lined up with a top 15 opponent. What’s Wilder’s highest ranked opponent, 200?

Nathan, heavyweights ranked 100-250 are unacceptable at this point in Wilder’s career. Let me clarify: Wilder is facing the weakest comp of any prospect in heavyweight boxing. A bunch of these guys aren’t even heavyweights, they’re fat middleweights.

Sam Peter NO LONGER has any fight in him so he really would NOT make such a great opponent for Wilder other than in name only although some writers will write on and on and on about how much of a real test he would be.

TARK

That’s okay…. Wilder is just gettng started and he’s finding it difficult to find the right opponent who will stamp him as a contender.. Fury… Solis… Cameron… Grant… Boswell… Perez… Gerber… Peter… Somebody will eventually step up and take the challenge.. The fight I would most want to see is Wilder-Fury. I just want to see Fury fight somebody who can hit a ton — since he chickened out on David Price.

Again Wilder reminds me of a heavyweight Johnny Bumphus – Skills but fragile!!!!

Posted September 4, 2012 5:38 pm

Fury would smash him

Posted September 4, 2012 5:37 pm

Nathan his next opponent is a 39 year old middle weight who isnt even ranked how is that top quarter

Aficionado says, “Anyone can fight once a month when they’re going against the weakest comp in heavyweight boxing.” … Good line, but Wilder is NOT doing a Butter Bean.. What about the comp that Wilder’s comp beats the crap out of??? And what about the comp that Wilder’s comp’s comp beats the crap out of??? I’d say that’s weaker comp.. Why were Cedrick Boswell and Ruslan Chagaev fighting Kertson Manswell if he was so pathetic??? Couldn’t they find anyone they could knock out? Wilder put Kertson out pronto …. When Tyson Fury is through beating up Ruslan Chagaev, he’ll have plenty of time to consider Wilder’s straight forward challenge for a fight … anytime and anyplace… Do you think Fury will accept???

1 word JOKE!!!

Nathan

Wilder isn’t going through “the weakest comp in Pro boxing” He is fighting guys in the top quarter percentile. Guys ranked 100-250 out of 1000 pro fighters. He needs to get guys in the top 50 and top 25 now for a little better experience before he challenges for a belt. But of course KOing everybody is better than going through 12 round wars. But he needs a stronger test of his stamina

Well said Kojot.

“Wilder recently attempted to get unbeaten Tyson Fury in the ring to fight him.” – Wrong. Wilder called out Fury after he already had the Chagaev bout lined up. Note he waited until Fury was booked before “attempting” to fight him. Anyone can fight once a month when they’re going against the weakest comp in heavyweight boxing.

RUFFKNIGHT

Boswell and Ruslan are another couple of potentials for wilder.

Posted September 4, 2012 12:45 pm 


TARK

Kertson Manswell went the distance with recent heavyweight title challengers Cedrick Boswell and Ruslan Chagaev.. Okay, Manwell went the distance with weak cherry-picked challengers — but Wilder blew Manwell away like he was nothing but a bum.

wow!

why do all the americans believe all the bs about wilder wanting to fight fury furys beat fighters in the top 50 and trying to get fights in the top 10 wilders fighting an old blown up middle weight who isnt even ranked in the 1000 plus hw fighters.

At this time haye fury chrisora and price all make short work off him, matt skelton would be a good test if he wants to make a name in europe altho old skelton would take him into deep waters true test for wilder

I think Wilder will do bid things, but he only has 16 completed rounds as a pro in 24 fights. If he becomes any more accustomed to this caliber of opposition, it could really start to hurt him.

Posted September 4, 2012 10:44 am 


RUFFKNIGHT

Maybe Maurice Harris, Mormeck, Solis. Solis is kind of shot and still in the top ten. This guy is definitely more padding.
Consider Wilder as 25-0(25).

Posted September 4, 2012 10:32 am 


RUFFKNIGHT

I’d like to see him try Oquendo.

Posted September 4, 2012 10:13 am 


Kojot

Wilder KO 1. Short, fat, old, inactive blown-up middleweight stands absolutely no chance. I’ll be quite surprised if he hears the bell for round 2.

iMO, Wilder is the best American HW prospect and has more natural talent than Seth Mitchell. However, let’s not pretend he’s fighting another HW prospect here, as McCreary doesn’t belong in the same ring. Terrible mismatch…

McCall was a shadow of his former self against Pianeta. He has made a good decision to retire, and it should stay that way.

actually thats a very good point!

Posted September 4, 2012 7:46 am

Wilder might have to hold this guy up before he hits him. :mrgreen:

Posted September 4, 2012 7:44 am 


Annon

put him in with Oliver Mcall! that will give him some rounds and experience under fire! he certainly aint KOing Mccall!

Not a good move!

Big deal…even if this guy does have talent he shouldnt be mentioned anymore until he fights a guy they havent found in a graveyard.

This guy needs to get his passport out & get on a few undercards in the UK & Europe.

Neil (pomy)

Right, who has the puppy food? Fury is fight chageav next, Wilder is fighting McCready ….. so any Wilder fan critising Fury for not taking the fight with Wilder needs their heads examining. Fury is fighting levels above Wilder right now. If Wilder was serious about fighting better opponents, they wouldnt of picked McCredy. Wilder is just padding his record with opponents that cant offer much back in terms of resistance ….. no way would Wilder fight Fury right now. Its all BS and politics.

rod

Why are we talking about Wilder. Why is he getting a mention. This is a man who has avoided facing anyone in the division. He was talking about facing Tyson Fury. That is a fight worth mentioning but it will never happen.
