Oddly Embarrison is just that. He is no different than a cheap umbrella where at the first sign of a gust of wind, he quickly folds up. What a joke! Oddly Embarrison is!

TARK wrote: I asked him, “You think Duane can beat Norton? He’ll get killed. He’s too damned slow, weak, unskilled, and easy to hit. Bobick has 2 left feet and he’s a sitting duck. Norton may have no chin but Duane has no power to take advantage of it.”

You forgot to mention to Mr. Futch Bobick’s habit of closing his eyes whenever he sensed he was about to be hit.

“They should have moved Wilder up much faster. They’re taking the Duane Bobick approach with their matchmaking. Bobick was 38-0 when he went from D-level competition to fighting a prime Ken Norton.. This was Eddie Futch and Joe Frazier who declared Bobick ready for Norton – the same dumbos who thought Marvis Frazier (10-0) was ready for Larry Homes (44-0) ..Both fights ended in the same round—but if it weren’t for stupid managers there wouldn’t be as much hilarity in this sport.” – Well said TARK.

Wilder hits hard but nobody including Harrison can say he’d beat Price. Wilder has not faced one opponent in the top 200 whereas Price’s comp is solid. Everything about Wilder is hypothetical until he faces someone other than the never dangerous TBA.

Harrison is talking himself up..I can take Wilders punch I can take anybodies punch.Well if Price K.O. him then what will he say? I belive Price has real hvwt. power and Harrison will be singing a different tune after the fight.Lets see…

I have to admit I haven’t seen anything from both fighters except for some Youtube highlight KO’s, which don’t tell too much. But when I look at their records, why would Price be ranked that much higher? His best wins are probably Sexton & Dallas, Wilders best wins are Manswell and OWen Beck. Don’t think their records are fundamentally different

I HOPE that the author completely understand that the reason and only reason that Wilder blows out and overwhelms his opponents so swiftly and completely is not because he is anyone special but because the level of his 25 opponents have been totally inept. A young Carl Williams, Tim Witherspoon, Frank Bruno and many many others would also have quickly blown away the same exact opponents that Wilder has had they faced them when they were coming up.

Everyone’s a dumbo sometimes, even legendary trainers…. I asked him, “You think Duane can beat Norton? He’ll get killed. He’s too damned slow, weak, unskilled, and easy to hit. Bobick has 2 left feet and he’s a sitting duck. Norton may have no chin but Duane has no power to take advantage of it.” Eddie said, “Oh my.. Listen.. How many world champion boxers have you trained and managed so far? Duane is going to surprise everyone because Norton can’t take pressure. You just stay on this man and keep punching. Four or five rounds his skinny legs are going to give out because Duane is going to light him up and drive him back every minute. Duane is a pressure cooker who never stops coming.” … Fuch was a brilliant trainer, but that’s pretty much bullcrap.

TARK: Let me get this straight – you’re calling a legendary trainer, Eddie Futch – a dumbo? BWA HAH HAH HAH HAH!

Why would Audley Harrison be talking about Wilder and comparing him to Price anyway? His focus should be on Price and only Price. Wilder is not the one fighting Price (Deontay should thank God for that). If he thinks Wilder is better than Price that says nothing for his boxing smarts and less for him and his chance of winning.

Harrison wants to ride the Wilder wagon. Audley having a confidence problem. Wilder may punch like a mule, but his wheels have not been tested. Wilder runs into someone who will not drop; he will have a fight on his hands. That could be interesting.

Right now, no one is taking Wilder seriously. Too protected, too carefully managed. He clearly has the tools to succeed …. but the opponent level has been very poor.

Until Wilder steps up the competition … Fury and Price are ranked way above him. Wilder has had many more fights than Fury and Price, but Wilder is still being match-up with the standard of opponents that Price and Fury took on ages ago. When the day finally arrives when Wilder’s opponents get better … then and only then will I consider him a threat to anyone above domestic level.

I`m not completely sold on Price. I still have questions about his ability to take a punch.

Unfortunately a fight between Wilder and Price is just not in the cards because neither one has shown any motivation to step up their level of competition.

TARK! Good analogy but at least Bobick fought some recognizable names such as Randy Neumann, Scott LeDoux & Chuck Wepner before being blown out by Norton.

NO… If Price KO’d Wilder he probably has a power advantage.. He’s not faster.

It’s amazing how much hype is put into Audrey considering his best wins are Danny Williams and Michael Sprott (both of whom he’s lost to as well).
Why do certain people think his fights against good opponents will be competitive?

Somebody should put Wilder in with Nino Rodriguez. Oughta be a pick’em match between those 2.

Let’s see Deontay Wilder vs Cris Arreola, since Wilder is such a world beater calling out the Klitschkos. Bet he doesn’t make it to the 3rd round!

Wilder has been immediately on top of his 25 opponents from the get go because NOT ONE OF THEM offered an ounce of resistance. Lets see if he would do the same to someone who might actually fight back a little bit.

Well if Harrison loses spectacularly against Price he will definitely have no choice but to cede wrapping them up and instead hanging them up. Absolutely seriously this time.

Wilder is the biggest hypejoke since Lacy. He has more fight than Pulev and the same numbers of fights as Povetkin but has done less than each of them did in their first two fights….

Looks like Harrison’s career is heading towards being a British gate keeper. Harrison can fight Wilder after Price.

WHY is sparring with Wilder who has fought absolutely no one in 25 fights who posed any kind of threat to him relevant?? WHY was an article written about it?

Before we get too deep, Audley isn’t a genius, in fact he’s more of a boxing bust. His words hold no weight and he’s certainly unable to be looked upon as a foremost authority on boxing. Wilder has never fought a real boxer yet. I invite anyone who thinks different to name someone he’s fought of any worth whatsoever. He also looks like he’s in a tough man contest while he fights these bums which makes it all the more alarming. David price on the other hand is polished and doesn’t lose his composure and has a good form. On top of that, if you look at his fight history you will see names that people actually know. So, to make a long story much shorter, Audley Harrison has no clue (just like boxing apparently) of what he is talking about.

The author needs to get his tonge out of Wilder’s arse so he can see straight. Wilder is being puppy fed. I thought this article would be about Price vs Harrison …. but in no time he turns into a cheer-leading article for a fighter who is being so carefully matched-up with hand-picked opponents that is see’ing him become labelled as a ‘hype-job’ and ‘protected’.

Once again I’m overwhelmed by the amount of praise a 25-0 no-hoper gets given for literally fighting no one at all. I’ve seen no evidence whatsoever of wilder having anything in his locker that compares with anything price has. He certainly doesnt have a better right hand (as the author erroneously states) and even if he had any advantage in speed at all, it wouldnt be much as price is very agile for a big guy. In short; Wilder would get destroyed by david price and in double quick time too.

wilder had 16 ounce gloves on though lol, Price with 10 ounce gloves will spark him out cold

Wilder needs to fight Seth Mitchell or David Haye!! It’s nice to build your fights on Guys you know you can beat. Wilder should fight Mike Mollo that would be a good test for him. Mike can punch and he’s got balls to stand right in front of you and hit you just like you’ve been hit by Thunder!!! Take the Test Wilder!!!

Audley will be out of there after the first big punch lands. Price has a test though, probably a decent step up in class. As for Wilder, fight someone.

May have the skills to beat Price But Like every other Big Fight you Had you will poop your Pants and all the negative will flow ……*THE ANTI BOXING*
