Wilder is a better boxer than Foreman was… Foreman ate jabs and had zero head movement… Even the inept Tommy Morrison out-scored George and so did Alex Stewart. Young had like 5 defeats when he whipped Foreman, so Jimmy was no box of chocolates.

If small ish some what light hitting Jimmy young( good boxer) could out box and beat the hard punching George Foreman. And Foreman who was a harder puncher , and also a better boxer then Wilder is . Then a decent boxer will easily out box Wilder.IIf wilder doesnt improve his boxing , He will pay for it when he stepps up the competition

I dont think wilder is learning his craft a fighter is born with powe. wilder seems to have power but didnt show much boxing ability . And heavyweights with big power can win fights and ko guys esp if ther big guys fighting lesser opponets . But its been my experience that bad boxing and lack of good fundementals eventually show up and cost the fighter who lacks boxing ability . I actually saw wilder skip in and throw a right hand it was hard but he still skipped in to throw it

It would have been nice to see Wilder use his left jab a bit against, Price, as he did so well in his last 2 fights, but then again, he didn’t exactly need it, did he? He used it about the same as Vitali used his against Manual Charr.

What impressed me the most, even more than Wilder’s patience against Price, was the way he lasnded that OH right. Watch it again and look at his footwork: Price was backing up as fast as he could. Wilder moved FORWARd, threw a jab, then still moving forward but with his back foot planted he delivered the best OH right in the game today. It was like a ballet move, absolutely amazing.

Folks who say Wilder has lousy footwork just crack me up.

Yeah Fella? Well here is some news for the last poster,… Corrie Sanders would have put Wilder in a Coma! That left hand had Vitali reeling for a while as well! It was harder for them to get the matches also because they are Euros. He’s (Wilder) an American, he has the opportunity to fight whomever of whatever ranking he would like. He chose not to. This is not a thing about Wlad or Vitali they would have fought better if it was available. Yes, DW’s right hand is fast and looks strong but if he’s a one trick pony, then what? Also, we know Vitali has a beard that is unmatched. Wlad was thought to have a china chin but after Manny (RIP MANNY, GOD BLESS YOU) got with him, he was seemingly able to take punches much better (Sam Peter, etc..) We’ve not yet seen this boy get belted, let alone get belted by someone of rank. Wait till Cris Arreola get’s a swing or two at that jawbone.. We’ll know then!

While I agree that Wilder doesn’t look even remotely polished in the fundamentals of boxing, much less in the finer points learned from years of living, breathing, and being a boxer, I would argue that he must be doing something right. To KO every opponent faced before the middle rounds is an extraordinary feat. Even if you have been fighting the level of competition he has faced up to this point. Most people don’t stop to think that even these “tomato cans” he has been in with know what they are doing to a certain extent and don’t just lay down. They aren’t getting paid enough to just lay down. It would be much more gratifying to them if they could be “the one” that exposed Wilder as a wannabe. Flaws or not, given his power I give him a chance to win against anyone. It only takes one shot, regardless of your experience and defensive skill set. People seem to forget that before the brothers K were dominating the HW ranks, both had previously been defeated. One of which by devastating KO.

I dont see much exceptionally special in wilder however you do have point with “no one questioned Klitschko’s 26-0 with 26 kos”…… Valid point.

@Boxing Fan
“I hope Wilder will be world champ in the next two years, the heavyweight division needs some excitement, he’s a tremendous puncher and looks like a real athlete,”

Hmm, the HW div. has been exciting to me. Yeah, Wilder is a big puncher, although his comp has been mostly dish washers and other no hopers.
Finally what do you mean by LOOKS like a real athlete? Not all HWs have chiseled builds, but many do. The K bros look very athletic – even old Vitali. Pulev, Haye, Adamek, Boytsov, Price, even Fury look like athletes. Povetkin & Arreola have a bit of a “tubby” look, but so did Peter – even in his prime.

Your telegraphing your biases.

My friend Motown believes Wilder is the future of the division I’m from ALABAMA I would love to see him step up his competition and work on his jab and few defensive flaws.

Question #2.. What kind of boxing fan are you if you can’t talk about boxing without bringing up race?

Okay I know I may be reaching here,.and I’m rooting for Wildee.But inst his legs extremely small for a heavywieght? I worry that he wont be able to handle a good shot and contain himself with weak legs

Posted December 20, 2012 2:06 am 


WHAT!!

Is that the same Zack Page that got smoked by Super Middle Froch? Is this the same guy or am I thinking of someone else? I am drinking as I post.

I’d like to see Wilder in there with Zach Page…Page is a cruiser that fights almost exclusively at heavyweight…he fights predominantly undefeated fighters and on short notice…he has fought nearly every contender out there and his record is a modest 21-42-2…I bet the house & summer home that Page would win by no less than a UD!!

TRUTH

Wilder has has definite size, definite power in his right hand and overall potential, but at 26-0 he has fought absolutely nobody. His defense needs work and his chin looks suspect (not a good combination). Kelvin Price legs were shaky the moment the bell rang let alone anytime Wilder laid a glove on him. Price looked like a fish out of water in the ring and another handpicked opponent for Wilder. If Deontay truly wants to make something of his career, He needs to step it up. He was in the Olympics so why waste 26 fights fighting bottom feeder? Time to fight some actual competition, Bryant Jennings, Jonathan Banks, Amir Mansour, Seth Mitchell. He needs to take it to the next level and stop mimicking his friend Malik Scotts padded 35-0 record. If the talent is there, take real challenges.

“Wilder is being extremely protected for a reason that has yet to surface but it is obvious that someone out there knows something that many of us don’t.” – Agreed. I suspect they’ve seen things in camp when Wilder sparred against some tough guys including Wlad. My guess is he’s chinny, which we won’t see much evidence of in his current level of comp. These guys jumping on his nuts probably haven’t even seen many of his fights. I saw him get dropped by a bum in his 6th pro fight. If that happens against tomato cans — not journeymen, rank amateurs mind you — what happens against a contender?

Deontay Wilder is the best heavyweight in the world. No one questioned Vitali Klitschko’s 26-0 TKOs or kOs against nobodies.

And by the way, how well will that BIG RIGHT do against a young – Price was pushing 40 right – strong opponent his size who actually comes to fight. Tyrone Brunson had big punches also until he fought guys who actually fought back some.

Fight Aficionado speaks the truth – Wilder’s size, athleticism and big right has never been questioned but after 26 pro fights come on. Wilder is being extremely protected for a reason that has yet to surface but it is obvious that someone out there knows something that many of us don’t. Each and everyone of Wilder’s opponents would have been blown out by a young Tim Witherspoon, Carl Williams Frank Bruno, Tyson, Lewis, Bowe and many others. Please watch the YouTube of a young and very athletic Carl Williams go at it with Mike Weaver. Sure he got clocked BUT prior to that he looked very good against an experienced and dangerous opponent and by far much better than Wilder has looked against far inferior opponents.

What ‘Fight Aficionado’ said. All we know about Wilder at this point in time is that he has a devestating right hand. Let’s up the level of competition and see whether he’s the real deal or not.

Posted December 19, 2012 5:37 pm 


PEEJ

Yeah he didn’t throw a jab at all that fight. I am not to impressed by Wilder. I need to see him in with someone that will fight back and go a few rounds. Everybody is talking about how powerful that right hand was that he landed at the end but Price was already hurt. You could tell by how his legs where stiff and wobbly. It was a good punch but Price had no defense against it because he was already hurt. I am not impressed at all with Wilder. And what sucks is I was really looking forward to his fight the other night.

Fight Aficionado

Until Wilder faces a live opponent there’s no reason to speculate about his abilities. Everyone knows there’s some natural talent and a big right hand. We knew that before his first pro bout. Now it’s been 26 and we know nothing further. His style and skills look no different than his early days as a pro. Step up the comp and let’s see what he’s got.

Landing a “pub fight” swing in a professional boxing match is doing a great job? Look at the capabilities of a Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko when they were his age, there you see potential. That is one thing I really do not see with this guy, potential. Just another hype until he meets someone with real boxing skills….

Posted December 19, 2012 4:14 pm 


nathan

seems like he was quite effective to me. Using a round or two to measure his first opponent in 26 fights that could match his height and reach. Showing his ability to use the ring, and dodge his opponents shots. He showed he can use his legs, not just his pwerful right hand bomb.
If he threw 80 lst round punches for a early KO, people would talk down price more. 3 rounds gave him some “practice” and he took price out when he saw his chance.
I don’t see any major flaws in his performance. He didn’t get tagged effectively so I don’t fault him taking 7 minutes in the ring instead of 2.

Personally I Like Wilder he’s a nice guy but if he gets in the ring with Tyson Fury he will be taken out in the same fashion Lennox took Grant out quick and painful KO baby

Posted December 19, 2012 11:27 am 


Kid Blast

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder talk the talk but are they ready to walk the walk with Dr. Steelhammer? The same goes for David Price. These giants, representing the new heavyweight norm in size, need to fight one another so that the true cream rises to the top and the true challenger emerges.

Posted December 19, 2012 11:23 am

Grant started boxing too late in his caeer and was never all that comfortable in the ring. Wilder is a different sort who has been boxing for a long time. No comparison except in size and Wilder is starting to become a monster size-wise as he fills out his frame with muscle.

Wilder needs to tone the talk down and just fight. Like Timothy Bradley, he needs a good PR man. I hereby offer my services at a reasonable fee, of course.

Time will tell how far he can go. That right hand of his is very fast and powerful. Seems like he should have a good jab. Hope the Jennings fight comes off that could be a really good one.
