” Only the Klitschkos, Haye, and Pulev can box well enough to possibly make this strategy work. ” Which is one reason why I suggested Deontay step right up to the Klitchkos. No one else can contend with his physical attributes except for those at the top of the heavyweight division.

I`m pretty sure Hatton used pressure on Tszyu.
It needs to be applied intelligently.

Maybe Wilder could walk Chisora onto a bomb, but I haven`t seen Wilder walk anyone onto anything. I`ve seen him bully people going forwards, because he has been matched with guys who lose for a living.

Haye walking Chisora onto something, I don`t think is any indication Wilder could. Haye has shown that ability on multiple occasions vs world champions – e.g. the sneaky left while going backwards that signalled the turn vs Mormeck, the straight right down the pipe that put Ruiz down in one round.

Possibly Wilder can do this, I won`t say otherwise, but the fact is at this point he hasn`t, and he hasn`t faced anyone that would force him to.

Old Guy…, That’s not the best way to beat Wilder… You never NEVER use pressure on a puncher… That’s suicide… You pressure a boxer, but never a big bomber.

Was Frazier going to pressure Foreman??? Was Peterson going to pressure Matthysse??? GTFOOH

Now you can box Wilder… You can jab him. You can evade his big bombs. You can possibly counter his bigger right swings. Only the Klitschkos, Haye, and Pulev can box well enough to possibly make this strategy work.

I think Vitali is too old.. Wladimir is getting older for sure.. Haye is a small guy but extremely capable.. Pulev lacks experience as much as Deontay does, but his jab is brutal.. He smashes you with the jab..

I want to see a couple of those matchups in the next year or two.

Dominick Guinn was a good opponent for Adamek… He’s not an opponent for Wilder.

Not unless you want to get him killed… You almost did that with Liakhovich… One smashing blow on Guinn might be really bad for Boxing.

4 of these 5 hypothetical opponents would be good ones. Guinn’s only attribute is his ability to not be KOed. Replace him with Jenkins. Winner of Jenkins-Wilder becomes a decent challenger to either K Bro.

Posted August 12, 2013 4:47 pm 


TARK

Guys like Adamek or Boytsov aren’t going to fight Wilder… You might as well try to stage a fight on the moon as get them into a ring with Wilder..

The winner of Mitchell-Arreola might fight Deontay… They’ve already been clobbered by contenders so the money might convince them… Chisora still might consider fighting him… He has already lost a few.

Jennings might fight him… He’s a pretty confident guy… But the list of top opponents who’d be willing isn’t a long one.

Dimitrenko refused to fight either Klitschko… He’s not going anywhere near Wilder. Pulev knocked Dimitrenko out with a jab. Eddie Chambers beat him up and floored him with a step-in left hook

The Pole Dancer would be a good opponent. Adamek would make Deontay earn the inevitable KO in this one…

Posted August 12, 2013 10:45 am 


Old Man

Guinn would only be interesting to see if WIlder could be the first to stop him and if Guinn could take him past round 4. You could say that about James Toney also.
I would like to see WIlder in with a top 30 opponent next. Lucas Brown, Thomas Adameck, Johnathon Banks, any of the top Cubans. It is doubtful that the winner of Pulev and Thompson fight him since they will probably be fighting for the World Championship. ALso that guy Diamond Boy the Syrian that lives in Germany could be an interesting fight.

I have to agree a prime Mike Tyson would have rocked him. He had a lot of movement coming in and just had such a beastly manner of non stop attacking. I guess you can’t blame Tyson for fighting Lennox for the money. At least he won the first round. Hope his promoting goes well I always liked him. Where’s his heart on his sleeve.

Posted August 11, 2013 8:44 pm 


old guy

Of the Americans, maybe Chris Arreola has the best chance against Deontay- if he muscles him into the corner and roughs him up, keeping him from getting loose……

Posted August 11, 2013 8:19 pm 


old guy

anyone who stays at distance will be murderized by Wilder. Like Teddy Atlas says, it’s about the Geometry (or geography?) of the ring- the way to beat Wilder is to crowd him, stay low, get inside, hook body hook body, uppercut, repeat as necessary. Mike Tyson would have starched this guy. Sergei stayed out at exactly the wrong distance.

Posted August 11, 2013 8:16 pm 


Greylo

I’m still a new fan of boxing so lots of these names being tossed around have my head spinning.
Deontay certainly needs a chin check, not to mention stamina. He says he’s always in shape but will he have KO power in a match that lasts longer than 9 rounds. I’ve done some boxing and know at least that it’s not easy to KO every fighter you’ve been in with so he has power in his right cross. Not sure what other tools he has. He hasn’t been in for many rounds besides sparring. I know the American heavyweight division needs somebody that’s exciting and has one punch KO power. As far as him fighting Wlad. I’ve seen some of these guys that looked good coming up but when they faced Wlad they seemed gun shy and couldn’t get off the shots they needed to hurt him, I am guessing that it’s Wlad’s skill and ring smarts that deflated a lot of guys game plans. Not to mention his right hand power. I’ve always liked Vitali’s style and chin better. He likes to mix it up and is more exiting than his brother. I hope he retires on the upside and doesn’t go beyond his years.
I’m interested in seeing what happens with Deontay, does he have the skills to go with his power. I guess things will get answered soon, at least I hope. He needs to break into the next level.

I agree, I see Good. Adonis seems to be the real deal and is a much smarter fighter than most realize. Because of his power, he doesn’t get the kind of recognition that he deserves for being a solid technical boxer/puncher.

Since working with Emanuel Steward and Sugar Hill, Adonis has really improved every facet of his fight game.

Like him or not, he’s going to be very tough to beat at this stage in his career.

I would love to see Deontay work against an athletic fighter like Bye Bye Jennings. But I don’t think main Events are willing to pit their man against a murderous puncher like Deontay just yet.

But if I were kathy Duva, I would sign that fight in a heartbeat. As long as Jennings fought the same way he did Liakhovich, he would have a very good chance of winning a decision against Wilder at this time.

I think his lateral movement, conditioning, and mental toughness would give Wilder a lot of trouble at this time.

Great fight!!

Posted August 11, 2013 5:07 pm

He should take on. Guinn i think that id like to see would be a better fight for him think got good skills hard punch and u may laugh but if guinn had 7weeks to prepare or around that and a nice little purse I think the wheels might just fall off the wilder wagon

Posted August 11, 2013 5:06 pm 


Joseph Herron

Great post, Terror Tim.

He needs someone who is either going to spread out the ring or make him fight on the inside.

And if GBP tortures us by pitting him against a sparring partner like Dominick Guinn in his next outing, I will personally go piss in Eric Gomez’s cornflakes!!

if the commissions would approve of it, a fighter like Oliver McCall would be a great opponent for Deontay at this time. He has a great chin and the power to test any young fighter.

But realistically, with the buzz that’s been created by this past Saturday’s knock-out, GBP is going to have to stick him in the ring with someone in the top 50 at least.

Posted August 11, 2013 4:54 pm

Anyone who can get this guy some rounds. These 90 second fights are doing nothing for his development. I thought Liakovich would do that but he is done. I want to see this guy go 6 or 7 rounds.

It was so obvious that Liakhovich was not prepared mentally for a real fight of any kind but instead just went through the motions – Wilder’s trainer Mark Breland was also an awesome force back in the mid-80′s – was tall and rangy and had a big right hand – and actually had beaten a couple of undefeated no-hopers UNTIL he fought someone who had a solid defense and who actually could fight back – Marlon Starling.

Posted August 11, 2013 3:11 pm 


Love-the-Sport

Guinn, Cunningham, Scott, Mitchell, Arreola — this a poorly thought-out set of fights for Deontay Wilder. They are a hodgepodge of things. Some will make money. Some will lose money. Some present high risks. Some are boring, bad, and low risk fights.

My suggestion: increase the competition for Wilder with veterans with good names in fights that make money but do not provide huge risk to Wilder. He probably needs 4-5 good fights before he is ready for the big money fights.

I would propose:

– Ruslan Chagaev
– Jonathan Banks
– Odlanier Solis

These are good fights with good action so they will make some money — but they do not represent big risks for Wilder. After these three, then it would be time to step up and put Wilder in with Arreola, Chisora, Stiverne. If Wilder produced big wins and big knockouts against these six then he would be ready for the elite including Povetkin, Klitshko, and others. I don’t even think Seth Mitchell is a relevant fight. Mitchell would be embarassingly over-matched against Wilder. There is no benefit for Mitchell and boxing to make that fight. You want to Wilder in with good veterans who can help Wilder improve. Mitchell is an inexperienced fighter with no chin. Stupid fight.

Am honestly shocked that some deluded fools are already trying to match Wilder’s skill-set to that
of Wlads!!
Wlad has spent the last 10 years eating up the best of the HW division with all the ease of a Floyd Mayweather.
Wilder has sepnt the last 30 fights finding the biggest list of absolute nobodies going to pad out his record.
Put it this way, Chisora fought for a title after his 13th fight.
Haye fought for a title in the HW division after his 24th fight.
Yet Wilder, after 30 fights, is still the other side the moon away from a decent fight, and remember,
this fool is top 10 rated by 4 of the belts.

Haye is SMALLER and HAYE can PUNCH to. Why Haye is DANGEROUS is because he has SKILLS, and is FASTER than WILDER. Haye can punch also. So if a fighter has SKILLS and can PUNCH hs dangerous. Wilder can punch YES but he has NO SKILLS. I put my MONEY on a boxer that has SKILLS and can punch. I HATE Haye but after the KLITCHKOS retire hes the NEXT best thing a BLOWN UP CRUIZER weight sad but true. Thats how BAD the heavy weight division is at this time

Yes, I say put him in with Wlad or Fury, guys his size. Maybe he KO Wlad, and maybe Wlad KO Wilder. He looks to me to be amateurish, especially when he gets rattled. We need to see him eat a few Wlad jabs and see what his reaction is. Sergei popped him with a few lefts and bopped his head back. A good left hook off a jab will KO him. Guess who owns that combo, only Wladdy himself. Arreola would be a real tough test for the tall skinny guy. Cheers mates !! & remember Gold over Bronze anytime.

I meant to say Wilder has incredible physical advantages over all of the five potential opponents which Ramirez listed in his article.

Posted August 11, 2013 12:26 pm 


Hidalgo

It’s “Bermane” Stiverne, not “Bernard” as the author has written, right?

Anyways, with the exception of weight, Wilder has incredible physical advantages over all of his opponents. He has up to nine inches greater reach and he’s as much as five inches taller. For instance, Arreola and Mitchell have a reach of 76″. Wilder’s reach is 84″. Cunningham comes in closest with and 82″ reach but he is substantially shorter than Wilder. And Wilder uses his reach advantage very well. I say pop him right up with one of the Klitschkos. They outweigh him by around 25-30 lbs. but for height a reach, they’re a pretty close matchup. Plus Wilder is young, strong, and fast which are the attributes he’ll need in an attempt to offset the Klitschkos superior skill level.

First and foremost I have to say this list of proposed opponents for wlder is utter garbage. Wilder is being discussed as maybe the best american heavy. He has damn near 30 fights. Please stop mentioning the bum fights. The only guy on the list that I approve and would be the last guy on my list to I want to see wilder fight is arreola.

Wilder is probably top 10 rght now. He has enriched the heavy division. Its time for him to mix it up with the top contenders. These are the fighters that should be listed as wilder opponents. Helenius, jennings, thompson, chisora, abdusamalov, either fury, pulev, boystov, wish I could say price, stieverne, I would rather watch wilder fight former jennings opponent tuapapoo than anyone on the list in this article.

Posted August 11, 2013 12:10 pm

Anyone in the top 15 would do. Thompson at present is the best HW in the US and he is taking on the best HW in Europe……Pulev. That fight will be a war. He could face the loser of that fight or the loser if Haye vs Fury. The winners off course will be moving onto a title shot. Wilder could also face the winner of Arreola vs Michelle. The time to prove himself against 1 or 2 real tests has come. No time for running and hiding. Wilder needs to face at least two well ranked fighters and they will test him just like how david price was tested. Will wilder pass, maybe

He promised to ko Wlad in savage fashion.
Wilder also said that he hold his own in the sparring sessions against Wlad, on the other hand, Wlad said that Wilder was his best sparring partner ever.
It seems that they made 45 brutal rounds together.
Wilder said that he was always in contention in these sparring sessions, because, he didn’t want to get expelled from the camp.
I don’t know man, Wilder said that he wants to kill both K- brothers, even his trainer was telling him to calm down, but, Wilder was screaming in the locker room like a lunatic.
I want to kill both Klitschkos! I want to kill both Klitschkos! Everyone could hear the man screaming.

Arreola- I doubt Wilder can KO Chris, this would be the hardest step up for him. 4. Price- Price has good skills but Thompson might have ruined his confidence. 5. Hellinus- Like with a fight with Chisora, Wilder should go across the pond and prove himself with Hellinus.

David Haye, Cris Arreola or Bermane Stiverne should be possible next opponents for Wilder should he want to be taken seriously.

He doesn’t need to fight anymore scrubs, he’s obviouly being protected. Put him in with a real test; 5.Bryant Jennings, 4.Tomaz Adamek, 3.David Haye, 2.Ruslen Chageav, 1.Alexander Povetkin. He’s not guaranteed a victory with anyone of these guys, a REAL test the way it should be…gotta stop babying these fighters, time to man up, you say you’re the best prove it.

What about the big hitter from Aus browne. Himself not really tested could be interesting

Hey Deontay Wilder,
I know you too scare to mention my name.

Danny Williams next! Williams beat Mike Tyson, Kali Meehan, Konstantin Airich and Audley Harrison, so a win over Williams = Wilder is great, and on route to world domination.

Liahkovich looked like the walking dead before the fight,bone dry,no pep in the step.He looked like a beaten fighter before the bell rung.So overall this fight proved very little,but to be fair Wilder did have good form with his power in this stoppage.Also Grant comes to mind aswell as Price when he stopped Harrison,and stopping Dallas who was most likely a more live wire then Liahkovich at this time.So a good test is still needed Chisora,Boystov,Johnson,are solid fights that would tell a great deal more about Wilder.

Odlanier Solis, Andy Ruiz, Chris Areaolla, would all beat him imo.

Except Fury is not an ”Irishman”.

Cunningham is to small and was knocked out by soft hitting fury. Mittchel will lose against arrello so will be damaged goods again. Gunn will be a good test for his durability so will be good to see what wilder can do when he can’t knock someone out. Scott is a slick fighter and will make it hard for wilder to hit so he will be good test. The best fighter is arello who is all round but it will be unlikely that wilder will be risked against him so only test is Scott and gunn.

Wilder does NOT need Guinn or Cunningham. Scott or Mitchell would be in the right direction. Even David Price. Liahkovich was a joke from the start, but Wilder’s team knew this. If they build him a pretty record, he will get the big payday. THEN, he will have to step up bigtime. I really think his lack of competition will hurt him. It reminds me of Michael Grant.

Cunningham is too small and Dominic Guinn isn’t worldclass anymore the rest sounds good

add Chisora, Price and Wach instead

Wilder’s chin has NOT been tested yet. If he gets hit by one of Arreola’s BIG punches, then we’ll know. Wilder is NOT ready for Bermine Stiverne, who fought a near-perfect fight against Arreola.

BLUESMAN

Thing is, Arreola needs to get down to about 235.

BLUESMAN

Arreola will knockout Mitchell in the first round.
