I really hope you are joking. That is comical.

This guy Wilder can make it to 50-0 if his managers keep cherry picking opponents. This last guy, Manswell, lost 4 or 5 out his last seven fights! I really would not be surprised if Wilder got exposed badly as soon as he fights a credible or live opponent. How will he react if somebody actually punches back ?

Impressive win…HOWEVER in terms of competition he is WAY BELOW Fury, Price, Mitchell, Gerber, Szpika, Wach etc. Wilder’s opponents are all very low level journeymen or faded fringe fighters on losing streaks. Wilder needs to fight a competitive opponent before his ability can be accurately gagued.

Wilder is good. The Klits won’t be able to stand his heavy punches.

I usually don’t take heavyweights seriously until they have at least 24 bouts. Wilder at 24-0 now has to be taken seriously. Like Price and Fury, he has not only size but also some ability. However, his resume is full of ham and eggers; it’s time he was matched against a legitimate opponent. Moreover, Deontay is still young enough to be moved along slowly against experienced competition including: Guinn, Estrada, Hanks, Hamer, Rossy, Oquendo, Grano, or Banks. It would also be interesting to see him matched against equally tall opponents like Skip Scott or Jens Krull. Best of luck to him.

Now this is the Prob with the American HW. They get a great records but still hasn’t fought a live body. Like the looks of this kid..but now is the time to step it up and lets see if this kid has the goods or is another Hype

It’s true Jim, he called out the Klitschkos in the post fight interview. And saying he is by far the best American heavyweight. I think he was asked about the lack of serious threats with the American heavyweight scene, and he goes on a rant about how he is the answer and all this. The guy hasn’t fought anyone yet!! He sounded so arrogant and actually a little delusional. A fighter like Szpilka, who hasn’t even had HALF the fights of Wilder has already fought better comp like Mc Cline.

This guy needs to face SOMEBODY half-decent already. What does his record tell us if all the opponents are bums or has-beens. My gosh, Christy Martin would have beaten Wilder’s opponents. He needs to fight somebody that can actually fight back. I did not see this last fight, but heard that this guy now wants KLITSCHKO ! Hopefully, his management team will try to reason with him.

He needs rounds. The lack of them will hurt him badly if he is taken into deep waters.

It seems that US boxing fans have a lot more belief in this fighter than his handlers. He’s 26 fights in now and this opponent had lost 4 of his last 6, and Beck was already on a 7 fight losing streak!!! This boy is 26 fights in and is being hand fed – how else could he have never been past 4 rounds??? It’s either bad management, or a hyped fighter. Maybe both.

Mr Rubes

First of all, Wilder knocked Manswell down TWICE not 3 times, although he was creditied with 3 by the ref. The second “knock down” was not at all, Manswell went down from a push/punch to the back of the head and Manswell rightly tried to get a warning for the Wilder. Kind of like Ruiz going down from Haye, the secnod time in the first round, it was not a proper knock down. Also, how ARROGANT is Wilder? Damn. Calling out the Klitschkos and saying he is America’s answer!?? Based on WHAT wins? I agree, his jab looked very good, as did his speed. His power…well, I saw the fight, and the power is still a question mark for me.

So he beat another bum Fury would smash him up in a couple of rounds to big to strong and hits to hard

Quite impresive, I think the slowly slowly way could be a masterstroke from his management team. Dont get caried away though, lots of hard work and regular fights need to happen. Move the next level of opponent up just slightly and have two more fights this year

hope to see this fight on utube he seems promising

Yes of course Wilder “went wild” and “did not commit to the body” instead he committed himself to punching Manswell in the face and knocking him down twice more within seconds. He was under great control, he tagged Manswell twice while chasing him down during the first knockdown! Great accuracy under chaotic conditions, I’d say. He could give almost anyone a good fight right now, but it would be stupid to bring him along like molasses for 4 years then jump right into some huge bouts. A few years from now he’ll take on the big names. This was another (very small) step…Manswell hasn’t beat anyone in quite a while, just like Owen Beck.

Wilder is the real deal.He has knockout power in both hands.He`s for real !

Posted August 5, 2012 1:35 am 


philgood

He did not look that great yell he knocked him out but when he first hurt the guy he went wild and lost his composer check it out when the man was hurt Wilder did not commit to the body at all everybody talkin about he’s ready hell how can you tell if he hasn’t a real fight yet he hasn’t past the grey area(Seth Mitchel or Witherson level) yet why pick someone with just two weeks notice I hope they not setting this young fighter up for failure he’s definetly not ready for any of the Klit’s. The punches Wilder used mostly were arm punches no leverage.

T-Bag

he’s a beast and he’s thorughly improved his technique and balance….best thing about him other than his obvious brutal power is a killer instinct that hasn’t been seen at heavy for sometime. i’m excited to see him step it up and think the time is now, I think he’ll be succesful

Wilder looks strong with good footwork and power.Time to step up against elite competition.Is it just me or are the under card fights put on by golden boy frauds? How can you have a fighter who just fought amir khan for the title against a 39 year old journeyman with 60 losses? Also another swing bout had an undefeated fighter against a guy who was 500 with 9 loses. These are clear mismatches and the sweet science is two finely tuned athletes working strategy with a chance to win not one over matched fighter battering an opponent.Oscar step your game up.

Brazilian Boxing Fan.

Wilder weighed in at 228.25 pounds, his highest weight ever.

nice to see david haye vs wilder…

In fact, he would beat both at the weigh-in by ko simply by flexing his muscles.

The warrior (lol) Manswell looked like Bruce Seldon…..Wilders’
little girl would have put up better opposition, and she looked
scared as well.

He would cream Seth Mitchell in one round and pulverize Tyson Fury and the other Europeans.

Posted August 4, 2012 11:26 pm 


Mike

I feel Wilder is best heavyweight. I would l \lke to see him face Mitchell or Fury next.

Guess it’s time to bring on a Klitschko. lol.

He looked good. Wish we could have seen more of him though.
