It’s time for Wilder to step up the comp. I’m not saying to throw him to the wolves yet, but it would be nice if he got out of the puppy den.

Nice words form Deontay Wilder, Audley Harrison and Kevin Kingpin Johnson should be boxing commentators, they are really interesting to listened with two differents mentality

you can hold your head high knowing you never ducked anyone and accomplished more than most ever will.

Harrison should be ashame of himself. He faked himself into another pay day and didn’t want to pay for it beyond one clean shot. He took the dive. Wilser’s right cross landed on the backside of Harrison’s face which would connect with no knockout power.

If the way a guy stares at a boxer intimidates him he is in the wrong business.

The look Deontay fixed Audley with was pretty vicious… You usually don’t look at your friend that way, even if you’re going to beat his brains in… Sometimes you’re not trying to to give him the look… You’re face is just reflecting what your mind is thinking … and that’s destruction… Deontay probably looked that this photo and thought.. Now I didn’t have to do that.

A good step up win for Wilder. Now let’s see what he does against top 30 guys. They can’t drop back to sub-journeymen comp now, it’s gotta be outside contenders and soon, some legit contenders. He’s marinated too long already. Sink or swim.

Hmmmmm there is alot if hate for Wilder while Lucas Browne and Mago are the second coming. Magos best victory was against a very old and faded Mccline and Browne was against a very old and faded Toney. I would like to see these three mix it up.

I`ll admit to being a little intrigued by WIlder as I would be anyone with a 100% KO record, even if the level of opposition has been laughable.

Watching his fights though, it becomes very apparent he has no left hand, and the right is often telegraphed.

I`m reminded of the saying “To a man with a hammer everything is a nail”.

Problem is that not everything in the heavyweight division is a nail, and if Wilder doesn`t develop some additional skills by moving up to a better level of opposition soon, he`ll be in for a shock when he is suddenly thrust into an eliminator, and realises that what he believed was world level was barely national.

28 fights now and he hasn`t even fought one of the top 5 in his own country, that is some real tippy toes stuff for someone with an Olympic bronze medal.

So tippy toe that I see one reason for it – waiting out Wlad Klitschko.

Thanks Mr Wilder to bring boxing in another level !

Deontay Wilder has the right stuff!

Neil (Pomy)

Well hopefully we will see him step-up the competition level now. We need to see his metal-tested before we can start raving about him.

Posted May 2, 2013 3:38 pm

Wilder has got to step up already. His list of opponents is almost silly. He has yet to face anybody near the top 25. What is with his management ? What are they waiting for ? Do they know something that we don’t ? He has an impressive record—but all against has beens or bums. How about Fury, Price, Thompson, Mitchell, Jennings, Arreola, etc.—-My uncle would have beaten Audley Harrison, and he is 53 years old.

Posted May 2, 2013 2:55 pm 


Kid Blast

Correct. We now have Pulev out there and Fury looks promising. Wilder could be the “WILD” card. The big guys are taking over and I have not yet given up on Price. And Haye will beat Char and get back into the mix. It’s definitly getting better. Wlad will rule for a while and Vitali will retire probably after he ices Stivene. I look for Pulev to come on strong. The Euros will rule the division for years to come.

Posted May 2, 2013 2:06 pm 


Neil (Pomy)

For the sake of the division, I really hope Wilder lives up to the potential. The division is finally starting to look a little better … about 10 years too late … but at least the top 15 no longer consist’s of just the left-overs and has-beens from the Lewis/Holyfield era.

If only Audley had matched himself against Sosnowski, Pinata, Wach type guys, he’d be a mandatory for a shot at the championship of the world by now ;-)

What makes him such a nice guy? He says a few words a all the girls on the site swoon. Good lord! Get a grip this dude is a prize fighter not the second coming.

Think the guy has won over a few uk fans. Fair play to him

What a classy statement! This Deontay is growing on me.

harrison should face piantea before retiring he will win that one

wilder, its your fault! You retired him! lol

Posted May 2, 2013 8:12 am 


Stan the Man

There are those that are wild about Wilder. I don’t think he will be the next best thing since sliced bread . His boxing seems to be very limited and the nice guy persona a put on face. All in all just what you’d expect from certain types trying to get as much mileage out of Wilder as they can. That is before he goes poof!

Posted May 2, 2013 8:10 am

Nice guy. I like him.

Wilder is class

Posted May 2, 2013 7:56 am

That was class from Deontay. Inthink I’m going to support him on his journey to a world title shot.

Posted May 2, 2013 7:09 am 


Stan the Man

Sparring together has all the makings for a song title. The way Oddly dropped in the first round sure does make you wonder if everything was on the up and up.

Posted May 2, 2013 6:59 am 


Junior

Sugar, you know nothing! Wilder and Audley have sparred and trained together for years, so there is respect there. His comp has been terrible, BUT David Prices best win was probably against Audley too!! Sam Sexton is debateable. Price vs Wilder would be fun. Over in the first 2 rounds. First to land wins lol

Posted May 2, 2013 6:24 am 


Sugar

The text was written for Wilder. His authentic feelings he is not allowed to reveal. This is more show biz and sell much like what played out with M. Ali but without the evil.

Posted May 2, 2013 6:17 am

Showing his class, I like it.

Posted May 2, 2013 6:00 am 


The Scotsman

Wilder is a loud guy but in a tongue in cheek kinda way, showed humility and respect when over in the UK. Taking some stick for the level of competition but given his limited amateur experience then realistically it’s probably the right pace. Would like to see him in now with Stiverne or Helineus just to take him up another level, time for ranked fighters.

Posted May 2, 2013 5:46 am 


Sharp

Oddly is what you call a dud but he does not when to hit the canvas. He rightly tried to save the few marbles he ever had. Harrison is a shame to the name of boxing whatever he gave to heavyweight boxing was cancelled in his “effort” vs. Haye and now the Wilder guy.

Posted May 2, 2013 5:10 am 


Dan D

Deontay Wilder; nice one. I like that he doesn’t talk a load of smack. Seems a very solid prospect but I wanna see an up in competition now. I want to see a Klitschko tested!

Posted May 2, 2013 4:51 am 


KOrnerman

Wilder vs David Price anyone? that’s if Price gets past Thomson of course.

Posted May 2, 2013 4:50 am 


KOrnerman

I concur guys, respect to Wilder and Audley, he tried his best.

Posted May 2, 2013 4:48 am

thats really classy and nice of wilder to say that much respect.

Posted May 2, 2013 4:35 am 


AssyrianGod2

No one has yet tested Wilders chin, his stamina, his defence, his adaptability or his heart yet…not surprising when you look at the level of opposition he has had over 28 fights! Even fighters like Maddalone, Rogan, Sprott, Firtha, McDermott, Welliver, Zack Page and Pakjic would be a step up at this point, which says it all really. Unless he actually beats a few top 30 guys, nobody can really talk about him in the same breath as the other up and comers, most of whom have fought opponents who hit back.

Posted May 2, 2013 4:21 am 


BEARS

why are there still articles on wilder? i thought we discussed this. no more articles on wilder until he fights some real opponent. c’mon east side. nobody cares about wilder til he fights someone. i dont want to hear about his 30th garbage fight. i dont want to hear about the words coming out of his mouth. please. no mention of wilder til he fights somebody real. thanks

Posted May 2, 2013 4:05 am

Wilder still has a ways to go. He is out of control in there. I am not seeing the progress. They need to get him into some real boxing matches.

Posted May 2, 2013 3:37 am

“seeing him tested” typo

Posted May 2, 2013 3:07 am 


Neil (Pomy)

As for Wilder, he has potential …. looking forward to seeing me tested in the future.

Posted May 2, 2013 3:06 am 


Neil (Pomy)

Well said Mr Wilder. I dont have a problem with Audley …. he sacrificed many of his best years to win olympic gold. He wasnt really suited for the pro game but he tried. His win over Michael Sprott was his best nights work …. that right hand he landed was a peach. I wish him well in retirement ….. he seems a nice guy to me.

Posted May 2, 2013 3:05 am

Nice touch

Yeah nice comment by wilder here. And hes right – audley achieved a great deal, regardless what all the know -nothings and haters out there are saying. Hold your head high audley. Wilder seems like a good guy and i wish him well. looking forward to where he goes next

I would like to see Wilder raise the level of his competition.

Posted May 2, 2013 1:44 am 


Also

Small wonder that the Bronz Stork is thankful for the cheap win versus Oddly. Throwing fights seems to be a major asset of Harrison with boxing like a man coming in a poor third or fourth. Facts remain the Stork has not beaten anyone of note the best he has faced are nobodies with Oddly being just a case in point.

Posted May 2, 2013 1:39 am 


PEEJ

Not sure about best win. This was Audley so best win no. But very classy of Wilder

Posted May 2, 2013 1:34 am

Wilder looks promising. Would like to see him mix it up with Lucas Browen or Mago. Guys with big punches and will land a few. That would be a real test. He did well against harrison and Kelvin Price. Both big men who can punch.

Posted May 2, 2013 1:01 am

Wilders best win by a country mile.
