Marilyn13 says…, “Audley Harrison has to be considered one of the top five heavyweights of the last decade.”
I believe David Price, David Haye, Vitali Klitschko, Wladimir Klitschko, Kubrat Pulev, and Dominick Guinn all fought in the last decade… Guinn wasn’t one of the top 20 heavyweights of the last decade — I just threw him in because he was better than Audley.
Audley wasn’t a bum. He had some nice wins. He got himself a title shot, and also won the European Heavyweight Championship.. But I also don’t believe he could beat Deontay Wilder…in the gym or in a fight… Deontay should step up the comp—this is true.Posted January 21, 2013 2:52 pm
terror tim – Even taking his lack of experience into account, he should be facing stiffer opposition. What does he learn from 1-2 round fights against much smaller men? He needs opponents who will last a few more rounds, while not offering much offensively if that’s the worry.Posted January 21, 2013 9:44 am
To be fair though, Audley Harrison has to be considered one of the top five heavyweights of the last decade (his few unlucky results notwithstanding). So Wilder being shown up by him is no disgrace.Posted January 21, 2013 8:47 am
It really doesn`t help WIlder that Audley Harrison was treating him like a clown in sparring, popping him with left hands every time the straight right dropped short. Wilder was so dumb he kept doing the same thing even when getting tagged, even after Harrisons trainer explained it to him. They were laughing at him and had to get extra sparring partners in who actually knew what they were doing.Posted January 21, 2013 5:04 am
Reign989 – There is no ranking and no money in fighting Wilder. He isn`t bringing in any fans, and he isn`t a ranked fighter. Price or Fury beat him and what have they got – nothing they didn`t have before. There are tons of fights better than Greer that Wilder could have and he is just shafting himself by not fighting them. He needs to take the training wheels off before he enters the tour de francePosted January 21, 2013 5:01 am
Wilder is moving up fine. Remember this kid had very little experience before even turning pro. He is now taking on guys we have heard before and in another year or two will be stepping up to guys in the top 30. Been telling people this since he turned pro that his process is going to be longer. To go with him getting into boxing late he is tall and tall guys take longer to get their coordination down. He also is filling out that big frame. Is a ways away from fighting guys like Dimitrinko.Posted January 21, 2013 4:23 am
WIlder-Mago would be really fun both guys undefeated with 100 percent ko percentagePosted January 21, 2013 12:16 am
There are plenty of nice step ups. Dimitrinko, Andy Ruiz jr, Pianeta, Fred Allen, or Ondrej Pala. Ibragimov would truely test the chin. Plenty out there. And I think he could really take careof them.Posted January 20, 2013 10:58 pm
Wilder would expose the other bum bomber British David Price, Wilder – Price 2013 make it happen. lol!Posted January 20, 2013 10:56 pm
Seriously I would like to see him against Szpilka or Leif Larsen.Posted January 20, 2013 10:47 pm
Step in for Joe Hanks and fight Richard Carmack. SKIPP Scott would be another zero gotta go! H e just tuck a beating for Manswell so he might need some time to recover. AND THE FIGHT WE ALL WANT TO SEE ON ESPN……..EDWIN RODRIGUEZ. Heck a wild fight with Welliver would be phat.Posted January 20, 2013 10:42 pm
Wilder has been calling out anyone who wants it. I keep hearing he should fight top rated fighters (and he should) but none of the top rated fighter are even responding to his challenges so instead of us commenting badly on those guys we make the negative comments on Wilder. Top rated fighters have more stroke to make these fights happen if they called out Wilder but hmmmmm no one is calling him out!! Yet he says anyone can get it, so where are the top 20 guys saying ‘I want this guy so I can prove he’s a bum!’ No voices from the upper 20 kinda funny when the low rank guy is intimidating the higher level fighters. If he’s such a bum it should be an easy win for the top ranked guys and a good payday for them since Wilder is hyped up!! So has anyone heard and Challenges from the legitimate heavyweights ??? I’ve searched and searched and no one is taking up his challenge (except the bums)!! So who else is he supposed to fight if none of the good fighter challenge him???Posted January 20, 2013 9:32 pm
Please, please, please Golden Boy, put Wilder in with someone who can bloody box for god’s sake!! It’s BORING as HELL watching him against these non contenders. Deontay should be embarrassed by this if he had any integrity or brain.Posted January 20, 2013 8:19 pm
LOLPosted January 20, 2013 7:36 pm
Aren’t the networks ashamed of themselves for putting crap like this on T.V.? This fighter might have some skills, but the will never be shown until he gets to 50-0 fighting. Overweight bouncers sitting in the arena. Stop the madness, if Wilder is anything like his promoter thinks he is,, put him in with some talent. Oops, there goes the cash cow,, reality sets in. He gets beat first tome in with a real HW. Good night wilder.Posted January 20, 2013 7:16 pm
Please put wilder in with some competition. Show his talent (if he has any) with some real heavyweights.Posted January 20, 2013 7:01 pm
I would LOVE to see Pulev put Wilder on his show-boating ass.Posted January 20, 2013 6:43 pm
@T-Bag Tyson Fury is the best British fighter hands down your deluded Price and Wilder are padded for a reason cos there management team no there not good enough, Tyson Fury is technically miles ahead of the rest and this year will be WBC champ so learn to like it you silly little boy hahahahahaPosted January 20, 2013 6:15 pm
I’m no Fury fan but he is a few levels above Wilder, he has been knocking out much better guys than Wilder’s opponents and just shut out Johnson. You can’t really compare the two until Wilder steps up his competition because at the moment he is fighting at a novice level, the sort of guys other boxers blast through in their first couple of fights to get a couple of wins under their belt.
Wilder is learning nothing, apart from how to pick up an easy paycheck from Americans desperate for a decent HW. There’s a reason GBP are doing this – easy money while it lasts, which from the sound of Wilder’s fans (who seem happy to watch him KO stiffs whilst claiming he’s better than genuine fighters) might be for some time yet.
Seriously, compare him to Fury, Price, Pulev et al when he deserves it, that means fighting someone relevant who isn’t there to mug the fans of a few $.
Again, nobody seems to talk about Seth Mitchell any more…Posted January 20, 2013 6:05 pm
when has fury destroyed anyone??? hahaha fury punches about as a hard as a HW Malignaggi and was knocked senseless by a gypsy bum with a less than 20% KO rate. Price is the goods, Fury= glorified can, does nothing well.Posted January 20, 2013 5:51 pm
fury’s a bum, no chin, no power, sloppy as hell, he’d get destroyed by Price and Wilder. The birts should get behind Price not that sloppy pikey FuryPosted January 20, 2013 5:49 pm
I hope the author reads these posts – Wilder looks awesome ONLY because his 27 opponents have been so dreadful!!!Posted January 20, 2013 4:53 pm
Wilder has decent power in his right hand, not stronger than WLads in a million years but it`s okay. Only a 5 year old would believe that alone is getting you a world title. Guys who are actually rated – who actually fight for a livving rather than fat “opponents” like Greer and Dustin Nicholls aren`t going to stand there letting you unload it on them, they will be hitting you back, and even if you are more powerful that doesn`t help if you get caught 5 times before you land it by ANY decent heavyweight. Wilder learns nothing from these fights, any country with a half decent amateur program has their guys sparring people who are 100 times better than Greer – Britain probably has 3-4 Amateurs who would knock Greer out in 2, as do Ukraine, Kazakhstan etc. It was interesting to see Wilder actually jabbing in this fight, seeing as he was talking big about his jab earlier. Basically his jab is s……hit. It hits glove, it doesn`t go through the guard, it doesn`t set the right hand, he doesn`t use it to touch for distance, or go body then head for the “snake and hammer”, and when he throws it, he pushes his right hand out to keep balance, leaving himself open to the counter. He is technically questionable, and he is still going to be technically questionable for the rest of his career if these are his learning fights.Posted January 20, 2013 4:08 pm
Price and Fury have both beaten better fighters than the joke opponents Wilder is facing and have looked good doing it. Both have fought former world title challengers and national champions, both have held national titles.
They both have far better technique, punch form and footwork than Wilder, they are both well schooled former amateur boxers who are on a different level to Wilder, both would crushl him.
Also it’s impossible to guage Wilder’s power when he’s knocking over cans, it’s pretty easy to look like the next coming of Big George when your opposition is below journeyman level. Saying he is second only to Wlad is a joke, if he ever steps up expect him to look less and less dangerous the better his opponents get.
It’s a big “if” though…..Posted January 20, 2013 3:59 pm
Wilder beats another Night Train drinking bum. Biggest Hype since Andre BertoPosted January 20, 2013 3:35 pm
exactly. Fury fought a tougher fighter in his second pro fight then Wilder has yet to fight. Blasting out cans, doesn’t show much. He needs to start taking on some at least fringe contenders. The fact that his management hasn’t done this says something about their level of confidence in his abilities.Posted January 20, 2013 3:32 pm
well i saw price and fury fight and wilder is no worse than them,and he’s got better power than anyone in the top 10,except klitchko,but close to the same right hand power/he needs to keep working on his jab/left hand,he can use them to set up the rightPosted January 20, 2013 1:24 pm
ZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzPosted January 20, 2013 11:55 am
Deontay needs to fight someone with a heartbeat then we will see what he is all aboutPosted January 20, 2013 11:04 am
He looked great on Friday night not Saturday.Posted January 20, 2013 11:01 am
Dear Mr. Wilder, My uncle Harry was laid off at the liquor store. He was 12-11 in the 1971 Golden Gloves. He would be glad to fight you next month for a decent payday. He is now 40 pounds heavier, but he still hits hard. He will even switch to light beer during training if you accept. Please let us know. Thank you.Posted January 20, 2013 10:39 am
A record to rival Malik Scott in sheer hilarity, maybe when he’s 40-0-0 (40) he’ll fight someone semi-decent. Seriously, he must be running out of tomato cans by now?
Funny how Seth Mitchell never gets mentioned any more……Posted January 20, 2013 10:04 am
Time to step up soon. David Rodriquez would be a big step up from Greer.Posted January 20, 2013 9:40 am
Mick the Marmalizer
Off subject to ESB: Frankie Gavin retained his British welterweight title on Friday & the latest prizefighter tournament took place last night. So where’s the reports?Posted January 20, 2013 6:58 am
Wow, he gonna ranked in the top ten in every organisation after that win…Posted January 20, 2013 6:51 am
DAVID PRICE AND TYSON FURY BOTH DESTROY THIS PADDED-RECORD CHUMP!!!Posted January 20, 2013 6:47 am
Time to step it up big boy.Posted January 20, 2013 6:34 am
