AssyrianGod2, you said that Wilder’s win over Fraudley only shows that he has power, I would go a bit further and say that he is fast and pretty accurate with the initial punch (Forget about the wild swings after……it was the first punch that counted).
Sure Wilder hasn’t yet been tested in all the departments that you make mention of………but Fury’s defense has been tested…….and it’s pretty poor……..so If Wilder could land a big punch first against Fury……and I suspect he would, then Fury may not be able to get off the canvas quite as quickly as he did against light punching Pajkic and cruiserweight Cunningham.

Tark ,discusses Foreman who always had a good chin getting stopped ONCE in 80 fights with multiple World Championship fights (against a GREAT HW fighter) spanning over 2 decades validates that point… Khan has been getting knocked out and knocked down since he got into boxing… He has about 1/10 of Foremans chin and Foreman was a HW who faced guys 200 pounds plus… There is NO comparison and the Wlad theory is laughable, Khan is NOT going to be the bigger man in the ring 95% of the time, Klits learned to mute his aggression and stifle ALL infighting in an effort to protect his chin… His size and strength have aided him in this endeavor, Khan is going to get hit, guys at 140 produce more incoming fire than these lumbering HW’s who throw 13 punches per round…. Khan is fun but the idea that he is elite is comical, he is 26 now NOT 22 and the playbook on him is out, get him to exchange and put something of consequence on his chin and you have a shot…There is NOTHING that can be drawn from Foremans abilities vs Khans

But I beg the differ, Floyd and Oscar and Moody(ESB) think that Khan is ready for Floyd and mark my words Khan is next for Floyd.

TARK

I’ve said this before… Rome wasn’t built in a day and Khan still has miserable defensive skills and no clinching skills… I would think he’d be doing much better by now if there were a massive effort to upgrade his skills, which I expected from Virgil Hunter… I don’t see it.

Maybe I’m just too impatient to see a change.. I saw a massive one immediately in Ricky Hatton when he switched to Mayweather adn boxed Malignaggi. But you can’t go from Malignaggi to Pacquiao — that’s really stupid.

Maybe Hunter isn’t is good as I thought.. Maybe it’s just Ward who is super good.. Maybe it’s Khan.. Maybe he just won’t listen and won’t learn anything..

The first fight out of the box after Wladimir Klitschko switched to Emanuel Steward was a horrible KO loss… Wladimir eventually got on track with his clinching skills, stance, footwork, jab, defense, cardio conditioning, and everything else Steward said he needed to bring up to World Championship caliber.

So maybe we just have to wait for some of Hunter’s teaching to finally catch hold… I don’t think the chin is the problem because Amir absorbed dozens of smashing shots from Marcos Maidana and still won …. The problem is he gets hit with shots people throw from center field. He gets hit with loaded uppercuts. He gets hit with the hand that’s free because he’s holding the other hand. He gets hit with roundhouse overhand rights.. And he clinches with no finesse at all.

Let’s see an improvement Mr. Hunter … and Mr. Khan… This is on both of you.

Tark, you’re missing the most important point. Khan’s boxing skills and ability are good, above-average good. But there is no secret formula or recipe for changing how he reacts to a solid punch. The change you described with Foreman represents a change in approach and philosophy. He never had to change his punch resistance. Khan, meanwhile, doesn’t respond well to 140lb power. I don’t think he has a future in this division, the guys on top are just too dangerous and even the mid-level guys are starting to beat up on him. I think the situation would be worse if he moved up. If I were advising Khan I would say you can still have some success in this sport if you move down to 135. There are no serious threats and you have plenty of belts up for grabs. As the guys from 140 move out of the division, Khan can come back. And something about watching him last night made me think that he looked better under Freddie Roach. His punches were snappier, were thrown in better combinations and he always had a solid plan. Let’s face it, if Khan would’ve lost, Virgil Hunter would have been the second victim of the night after Amir himself.

Posted April 28, 2013 9:55 pm 


TARK

Khan’s case is not hopeless… It’s like Floyd Mayweather Sr training Ricky Hatton.. Ricky was ecstatic after the Malignaggi fight.. Paulie gave him tons of time to think about doing everything Mayweather taught him, and execute it flawlessly.. But as soon as you get punched real hard all the new stuff goes straight out the window, and you’re old instincts take over.. It takes a few years..

Foreman started a new career at 38.. He decided he wanted to be a patient boxer instead of a wide open slugger. After 3 years of working on it he said, “I’m 41, but I could beat the young George Foreman.” Obviously everyone thought he was delusional. But George did learn patience. He learned to wait for his shot. That’s one of Khan’s biggest problems and he’s about 25 years old.

Kahns flashy style is a treat to watch but he really needs to reinvent himself. Yeah hes circling alot more but still leaves his head on a tee for his opponent. You’d think it be a simple adjustment easily corrected with his ability but i guess not. What a shame because id love to see him in with the likes of Broner and Floyd very few can match their athleticism and hes one of the few.

TJ, Wilder said that he wanted Fury next when he was interviewed after the fight.
Some have criticized Wilders “swinging” and missing Audley when Audley was on the canvas.
And to an extent I agree…….Wilder needs to know that his opponent was on the way down for the account after about the 2nd punch that he connected with……..and there was no need for the follow up punches.
That said though, I suspect the adrenaline kicked in and Wilder was like an express train without breaks.
To his credit though Wilder’s initial punches that started the knock down were pinpoint accurate and fast.
You can kinda forgive Wilder for missing with those swings those……..because he was training to hit a 6′ 5 target……not a guy below the ropes height.
Does Wilder leave himself open, perhaps……..but then again Wilder did begin to swing wildly when his opponent was in no position to fire back……..and when Wilder did swing…….he did it a lot faster than a normal heavyweight who swings and misses, which negates this weakness somewhat, in that any upright heavyweight might not be able to exploit the gap as they normally do…….now don’t get me wrong I do see Wilder’s swings as a weakness that he needs to address…..but the sheer speed of Wilders swings makes him less open than a normal speed swinger…….If you get my drift!

instead of telling Khan that he has a big heart because no one wants to hurt his feelings, someone should tell him he doesn’t get points for sticking his chin out, and his only reward for doing that will be more visits to the canvas.

The exciting thing doesn’t fly with me. There are a lot of flawed fighters that are exciting to watch, because of their vulnerability. But in the game of boxing, the key is to win and sustain little damage as possible while winning. People call that boring, I call it being smart. Driving a car properly from A-to-B could be seen as boring, compared to a five car pile up because someone wasn’t driving safe and caused an horrible accident. Sure, the scene is suspenseful and entertaining to the ones watching, because of the possibility of sever injury and death, but it’s no fun for the drivers caught up in the tragic situation. Khan is a fight or two away of seriously hurting himself, if he doesn’t improve his fundamentals. And while that might be entertaining for some, I’m sure it won’t be for Khan, once be becomes brain dead, which he’s slowly showing signs of in this speech.

Posted April 28, 2013 3:20 pm 


SREDMOND

Khan is certainly entertaining and in fairness he does have heart and does rumble to his detriment…I think the bigger issue is adjusting expectations, Arturo Gatti was exciting also but he was not regarded as elite… Khans a very good fighter and his bouts with Peterson, Maidana and others always provide drama and intrigue but notions of him being more than a good yet very flawed fighter are hard to sell… I personally like Khan, I think he has pissed off some because trying to emulate Mayweather absent the success is gonna get you scoffed at….You can’t hyper inflate yourself then get knocked out or put down by perceived lessor fighters it brands you the fool…..

I tend to go with the underdog as well mate, especially when I am not a particular fan of either boxer. Floyd-v-Guerro is a classic example …. I think Floyd will win but I will be cheering the Mexican on all the way. It is basically why I always root for the opponent in every Klitckho fight.

@ Neil~ I must admit I go against Khan in almost every fight, not because I don’t like him or think he sucks, it’s because I always tend to go for the underdog and since Khan is the favored fighter in most of his fights I root against him. I also went with Judah, I know it’s foolish but, I just love seeing the underdog do the unexpected and hand the top guy, the sure thing, a loss.

Posted April 28, 2013 3:02 pm 


Neil (Pomy)

I agree but we cant hold that against Khan (regarding what his more obcessive fans say) …. all popular/top fighters have an element of their fan-base that go over-board in their praise; Even the established top guys like Floyd, Pacquaio, and the Klitchko brothers ….. we all know there are fighters in the past that would be able to hand them all a crushing defeat …. but we still have to put up with them claiming they are the greatest ever. It comes with the territory of being popular. Every top or popular fighter has them.

Posted April 28, 2013 2:53 pm 


PILLOWFIST

@ Neil~ You’re right! Khan is an exciting fighter, he can be rocked easily and can drop a ko punch in an istant, that is something that makes him very fun to watch. I think the reason people don’t like him or are so critical of him is the fact his fans act like he’s the second coming of sugar Ray Robinson. He’s good but not the best in a generation type fighter. His chin just won’t allow him to be exalted the best.

Posted April 28, 2013 2:46 pm

…. and Khan is one of the most exciting fighters on the planet. Win, lose or draw; it is nearly always entertaining …… He has lots of flaws and he may never reach the top again; but id rather watch his fights more than most other boxers. I dont understand why some people dislike him so much. I like fighters who provide entertainment …. and Khan does that consistently whether his hand is raised or whether he is flat on his back.

Posted April 28, 2013 2:38 pm

To be honest, and to be fair, he hurt Garcia a couple of times … but Garcia hurt Khan more. Khan is a better boxer than Garcia …. but Garcia was/is tougher and hit harder.

Hidalgo, Khans flashy combos meant nothing against Garcia, he was leveled and NEVER recovered AGAIN Khans reputation cannot be salvaged with creative spins on his defeat to Garcia who has become Ring Champ and is forging ahead…. Every fighter out there knows if you can survive Khans flashy combos his chin is weak…. The word is out banking on Khan beyond a certain point is a fools endeavor..

Posted April 28, 2013 2:12 pm 


The Prince

You can’t blame Virgil Hunter. He’s clearly trying his best to change Khan. But like the old saying goes: You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. In that fight, Khan was still throwing pointless combos, leaving himself wide open for a counter shot. He’s still overall bad defensively, and when you have a weak chin, having bad defense is like a nail in the coffin. He tries to be more patient with his shots, but the moment he gets hit, he goes right back to throwing widely and leaving himself wide open. Khan should have invested his time in another sport. Now he’s either going to get knocked out into retirement, or he’s going to becomes a paycheck-to-paycheck gatekeeper. He’ll never be a top elite P4P fighter the way things are looking now.

Khan is done! He won’t fight any top elite fighter with power again. Why! Because most, if not all top fighters can bang. Khan gets rocked if the wind changes direction. Broner takes him out, Rios takes him out, Alvarado takes him out and forget about moving to 147, those guys bang too. Mayweather makes him look foolish, Bradely out works him, Pac cleans his clock the first time he lands. There is nowhere he can go but down, down in his career and on the canvas.

“Had Diaz been able to followup that would have been the end of him….” What kind of asinine reasoning is that? That’s like saying, “If he had slipped he would have fallen.” But he didn’t slip! Khan made sure that Diaz couldn’t “followup.” That’s called being the better fighter. You’ll get it someday SRedmond. Keep working on it.

“He didnt panic when he was put down, he didnt fight like a madman when he got back up ….. so the improvements are easy to see if you are open to acknowledge them.” You saw what I saw Neil (Pomy). Khan also kept his head throughout the fight–a very important improvement. Khan was way ahead on points in his fight with Garcia, then he decided to get wild and brawl after getting tagged by Danny–we all know the results of those decisions. I hope there is a Garcia/Khan rematch in the future because if Khan watched Danny’s peformance last night, Judah revealed the keys to solidly beating Danny. Thing is, it took Judah too long to figure them out.

Posted April 28, 2013 1:01 pm

Khan looks the SAME to me, lets NOT be fooled he was in the ring with an 8-1 underdog and had several moments of jeopardy… Kid can’t take a good punch, we have seen the flashy handspeed before its the same old Khan… He is a good and some nights very good fighter but hes not close to elite… You can’t count on him comfortably defeating massive underdogs and he is in the prime of his career…. Amir Khan is one loss away from relative obscurity…..Had Diaz been able to followup that would have been the end of him…. Watching Khan is fun and I will continue to do so, and its because along with his talent he is VERY vulnerable against all levels of competition…

He is making changes in style and tactics, that much is obvious, but you cant improve punch resilience significantly. He didnt panic when he was put down, he didnt fight like a madman when he got back up ….. so the improvements are easy to see if you are open to acknowledge them. However, the punch-resilence / toughness will always be a weakness. Still even with those weaknesses he has still had a very good career …. I wouldnt write him off from winning another belt in the future though.

The Bible of Boxing

I’m-here (as in my chin) Kan’t should just shut up. He seemed to blame Freddie for not teaching him defence but we saw him under Virgil Hunter and he still has no chin. He has to learn that fast hands mean nothing unless he plants his feet and hits guys hard, and yet move his head. He throws punches and to quote Teddy Atlas and the late Gil Clancy, waits for a receipt.
Wlad has no chin either but the Late Manny Steward taught him to fight a style that he never gets tagged anymore. It is boring but effective when facing guys who are too cautious of Wlad’s power. I’m-here has not and will not last against a decent pressure boxer or one who has power or decent timing. Each time he gets hit on the chin, to quote Ali, it seems like “timber’ Time!!!!

Sorry guys Khan is the SAME fighter and its not necessarily Hunters fault… The notion that a trainer can come along and in a few months eradicate a guys ingrained flaws from YEARS of boxing is usually not the case… We saw Oscar, Cotto and other change trainers like Tiger Woods changes girlfriends and they still had their tough nights… The reality is that Amir Khan is a CHINNY fighter we saw him survive Maidana in similar fashion so wheres the improvement? The kid is simply NOT an elite fighter and thats OK he can still be a good or talented fighter than can be knocked out at any moment by a lessor talent… He has really good athletic talent but he is starting to look like a guy who was best suited to the amateurs, flashy combo’s and good scoring speed but he does not deter guys enough and when he gets caught his legs go rubbery… Khan is getting knocked out AGAIN believe that one, no fighter at 140 who has cable TV will not be thinking I can get to this guy if I catch him…..

My thoughts on DEONTAY WILDER….. Dude needs to shorten up his shots…. This guy was winging shots from the fences and missing horribly when AUDLEY was technically down on the canvas…. Against the higher echelons of the division he is going to get caught, dropped and stopped if this is the way he normally fights.

When he gets a guy in trouble he needs to be cold-hearted and efficient in finishing, short, precise punches are the order of the day…

This is the first time seeing him, so it may be a one-off, but if that’s the way he tees off, he leaves himself more open than a Texas brothel and must tighten up on that! Dude needs serious rounds and serious competition…..

Why not aim at TYSON FURY????? Another dude who needs to be tested.

Posted April 28, 2013 7:15 am 


TJ

Khan showed no improvements – except grabbing on for grim death! No head movement, moving back in straight lines, little-to-no ring generalship.. ie no clue on how to set up this Lightweight.

We have to take things into consideration, Kidd is 33 years old and has little left in his legs, therefore when he had Khan down and hurt on numerous occasions, he was unable to follow up effectively as he was also battling the ref, as well as Khan!!!

Khan was open to the right hand over the top from the first bell and he is very susceptible to any combination after an opponent opens up downstairs.

Khan has blinding handspeed and great footspeed on the retreat, but I have always felt he has poor balance, hence he falls into his opponents after he exchanges – which should lead him susceptible for the uppercut…

On the plus side for Khan, he possesses two things that can’t be taught – he is too brave for his own good and he truly, if misguidedly believes one day he could be the best in the world.

This kid will have this beaten out of him by guys like Marquez who is accurate enough to punch with him – straight shots down the pipe or Swift and King Pete, who are prepared to walk him down and bully him until his petrol tank empties…..

I personally feel he steers well clear of Matthysse, who has the true one-shot power and short shots to knock him out the box!

I feel Hunter should pull Khan out of the proposed December bout where Khan is slated to meet the winner of the Jnr Welterweight Tourney…. Khan is not ready for any of these guys….

I suggest Khan turns his attention to Frankie Gavin at welterweight or Ajose Olusegun in a British clash, to see what he has really learned.

Amir is not ready for the division’s elite as I see this performance played out time and again and with a proper referee he wouldn’t have gotten away with all his grabbing and infringements!

“He is struggling constantly, and his ability to take a punch is a liabiliity that seems will be his undoing… ” What fight were you watching tonight, SRedmond? Khan took a lot of power shots mighty well. He’s not Antonio Margarito or Miguel Cotto. He’s Amir Khan. He took a lot of punches tonight–just like Julio Diaz said–that would have made any number of other fighters quit. Khan took the punches, didn’t quit, and won the fight. Even Diaz was impressed with Khan’s toughness and courage. Really, give the kid a break once in a while. Khan got himself a well-deserved win tonight.

I thought Khan fought a very intelligent fight. He looked better tonight than he has in a long time. I scored the fight 115-112–same as most of the judges and the analysts and commentators–for Khan. But I knew Diaz would be trouble for Khan and he was. Diaz has good power and Khan felt it a number of times. But he always kept his head, he clinched when he needed to and he never panicked. A very sound, mature, championship caliber fight by Amir Khan.

Diaz should have won the fight, but Khan is clearly on borrowed time. It’s only a matter of time before he faces another top fighter that will KO him.

the only reason i can think of as to why goldenboy keeps backing amir khan and lines him up with title fight after undeserved title fight is that they feel amir is their ticket into the international (UK) market. that’s the only reason i can think of, because between me and the rest of the boxing community, we know amir is barely top10 material. especially after this poor performance against a cherrypick who embarassed him tonight.

No way Wilder is ready for either K brother. Then again, I’m not sure who is. I like Wilder and assuming his chin holds up he could well beat Fury or Jennings. Wouldn’t mind seeing Wilder in against Stiverne, who dominated Arreola tonight.

Funny comments :D I wrote an article on this site after the Peterson fight saying Khan would never be elite and I got slated, but look at him, He had to defend fighting this opponent. He looks like he could fill out his frame, but he is even less likely to be able to take a shot at 147. Diaz, Garcia, Peterson, Maidana and Prescott all gave him massive punishment. Maybe he could fight Berto, Ortiz, it would be entertaining. He’s becoming a Gatti …

Posted April 27, 2013 10:17 pm 


Q

Actually, Khan’s biggest problem his his punch placement… his offense is blazing due to length and speed… but with a guy trying to HARNESS his speed… he’s making his horrible punching technique more evident… he ALWAYS ALWAYS gets caught in between… if he’s in front of you… and he’s blazing you… you can swing for the fences and see what happens… because not only is his head there… but he’s standing up straight and stiff with his punches looping in….. he’s just a big giant and soft target….. his career is done.

Lefhook, Khan is fun to watch and if he fights I will watch him but the upside attributed to him in the past is pretty much hard to entertain… He is struggling constantly, and his ability to take a punch is a liabiliity that seems will be his undoing… This is not Klitschko in there with a slew of inferior smaller athletes while he figures out how not to take a punch… Khans dealing smaller, more active and faster fighters he is gonna get hit again and again we know he is not Mayweather defensively… All sad but true

Deontay Wilder (28-0, 28 KO’s) made a great job by knocking out Audley “Fraudley” Harrison and as early as after 1 minuite in 1st round!!! Great job and now hoppfully we will see Harrison retire for good now becouse NO ONE outside England want’s him fighting on. And speaking of Wilder vs, Fury, I would like to see that fight as I feel WIlder is a tough man but not great material yeth and Tyson Fury is good but overated so far so they should fight and it would be an heavy puncher fight.

He survived, a year ago he prob would have got knocked out. The guy just never knew how to get through n survive. One of the first things your taught as a kid is to take a knee. Khan I have never seen do it yet. Watch again the Garcia defeat! he tries to vault up from being on his back, try doing that without taking a big shot! you have to be a gymnast to do it. He just needs to use his head, alough I think it might be to late as he’s had to many wars already, in the gym and ring.

Khan’t might as well cash out with one last big fight for the most money he can get, against Ortiz or whoever he can get in the ring. If Diaz, years past his prime and fighting above his proper weight, could take him to the limit that tells us all we need to know, in case we still needed to know that Khan’t has no chin and was way more sizzle than steak all along.

Khan looked vulnerable but managed to secure enough early rounds to win.
Wilder looked impressive, and yes at times he did swing and miss……..but that was after Audley was so far down the canvas it wasn’t surprising that the 6″ 7″ guy couldn’t connect.
I do agree though that Wilder would have been better off just letting Fraudley fall to his knees…….perhaps the adrenaline kicked in too much for Wilder………but then again he has been in training for months, so perhaps he was keen to get more punches in.
Wilder will still have his doubters but so far you can’t argue with a 28 winning 100% KO record.
And Team Wilders have done what they set out to achieve……they have allowed Wilder to be seen to a wider audience, who will no doubt be keen to see Wilders next fight.
So yes Wilder might be a little wild……..but that is his name!……and we have learnt that he does have power in those punches.

Gotta admire the fella really, for a boxer fighting at world class level to have such an iffy chin,and poor defence…..but still go on and win belts is a pretty impressive thing in my book.
Obviously his flaws are there for everyone to see, you don’t need to be a boxing expert to suss them out, it’s a real shame that his chin isn,t made from granite as that would-negate a lot of his problems straight off.
I get the criticisms of khan, I really do, but I like to watch him fight as it really is exciting stuff at times.
Of course Peterson, Garcia will be licking their lips, along with many others……as its set in stone now that khan lights up with a well timed shot….but he has survived in a few fights now, and got the nod, that’s quite an achievement with his obvious shortcomings.

Actually he looked better with roach as trainer ,you have to think about the opponents aswell (tougher). think this fight would go easier for him with his fast flurries. but the chin is nothing to do about ,he was out and in my opinion the ref let him hold to long and clinching when in trouble.

wow, Khan was getting his a** throttle in there, but wow… he showed a lot of resilience, he sure got rocked a LOT and BADLY…. but he would not go down. This is the first fight that Khan has won after being on the ground if I’m not mistaken. Khan is a brilliant athlete, but not a very good boxer…. his footwork and punching angels are horrific. It can’t be fixed…. it may not serve him being more patient, because he’s best with speedy flurries…. he’s throwing less, but his punching angles are still horrible…. which leaves him more open than ever…. I like Virgil Hill, but… this isn’t working out great for the guy…. gusty display by Khan… staying on his feet. “These Mexicans are tough” no les lamas culo a los mexis, ¿por qué? Le ganó. It almost seems as if Khan’s beard weakened… he didn’t fall off that big right hand from Maidana…. uhm… I’m happy for Khan, but IDK about this union, it’s not working for Khan, and I don’t think it will… his placements are just not meant to be messed with by a technical coach at this point in his career…..

Sadly Khan was raised in the UK on English water where it lacks calcium and leads to frail bones mainly where the water comes in closest contact most frequently and this the chin mouth area. Had he been raised somewhere else he would have the same skill and speed but with a stronger beard.

Bowling afarce over doesnt prove power. Audley has been down hard too many times. Williams and Sprott showed his lack of even a domestic level chin. Haye onwards and he has been like a rabbit in the headlights. Was suicide him going in with another banger. He was big, athletic, quick, accurate and powerful when he wanted to be but he was never a fighter. Fragile and scared of getting hit. Amazing he made so much money really, the deficiemcy was cleverly hidden. He freezes and waits to go down. The team around him must have known failry early on, guessing the Negus fight, they milled it for far more than it was worth. I dont think I’ve ever seen such a fragile HW operating at the world level before. No wonder he stayed amateur for so long.

Amir needs a disciplined controlled performance the moment he thinks he is winning and starts to be flashy he will get sparked………

BTW, Campbell quit again but this time is OK because he doesn’t belong in the ring against anybody anymore…

Khan should win this fight but one can always feel the vulnerability around him like an aura; all it takes is a good shot to derail all his pre-fight plans…one is tempted to feel sorry for him.

UnleashtheFury. Stop using the Johnson fight as an example of how great Fury can be. It’s easy to look good when your opponent does not punch back. Fury will get blitzed by Wilder

bad jake

time for audrey to retire it was once again farcical

Just-Sayin’

Once again the bull stinks up the room as another HArrison joke performance does the rounds. Harrison go find something you’re good at. You’re wasting your life fooling yourself.

Once again poor old Audley loses another fight because of simple misfortune. He had Wilder in all sorts of trouble before the American got through with a desperate and lucky counter. 19 times out of 20 such a wild counter misses and then Audley closes out the fight easily…

Wilder has no skill. I saw more skill outside my local pub last night. Put him in with haye or pulev or anyone who can box and the bubble will burst.

Haaaaaaaa. The haters said Rigo was also crap until he shocked them out of their bones. Watch how the Klits who know better will avoid Deontay Wilder.

UnleahtheFury aka slip and hit is terrified of seeing Fury in there with Wilder

Posted April 27, 2013 4:47 pm 


Wilder is garbage

The overrating of a garbage fighter continues just because he beat a senior citizen. When will this kind of overreaction stop?

Posted April 27, 2013 4:44 pm 


slip and hit

Lets not forget Sprott..Rogan..have wins over Harrison years ago.Sprott had a 3rd rd k.o. over him years ago.Yes this is better then the blown up middlewt. Wilder faced but it is what it is..not that much overall.And Cunningham was a wwaayy tougher test then this for Fury,and if people think Fury would fight Wilder like he did Cunningham their crazy.Look for a more tech. fight from Fury like in the Johnson fight…and yes Wilder looks wild and raw.Once Wilder is forced to settle down and go some distance and use his tech. skills lets see how he handles himself.And lets see when his chin gets tested it wasnt that great in the amatures lets see what happens when a big hvwt checks him.The jury is still out…time will tell.

Thought Wilder spoke well after the fight. Clearly the guy has power, a bit wild but I suppose when you havent been in with anyone good that wont be there. Should put him in with Seth M next. Well done wilder

What a performance from ogogo

sorry brits, furys management won’t let wilder anywhere near him. they won’t let any live body who can punch near him.

Wilder seems like a nice guy, but he’s as raw as a smacked baboon’s ass. He’s seen more stiffs in front of his face than Jenna Jameson. You wait till they stick in with someone with a pulse, who actually has some boxing ability and can both box a bit and punch and hasn’t got a glass jaw.

murderman

Wilder is goin to beat fury half to death! If cunningham a lil guy wiht no power can floor fury then wilder is going to kill him! Poor audley! He never stood a chance!

Posted April 27, 2013 4:26 pm 


Firestarter

No doubt Wilder can punch, but tecnic is lacking, and damn some wild swings he threw.
I wonder what happends when he starts meeting someone that will take him to the 8th + rounds.

Eventhough it was a stepup from Wilder and good he started doing so.
Unfortunely it was the bad version of Audley that showed up.
I hope Wilder can get Fury next.

If Cunningham can floor Fury, Wilder would break him in two.

Deontay Wilder has a bright future. He’ll KO Tyson Fury.

Wilder wants fury next……this could be interesting

Posted April 27, 2013 4:09 pm 


Gumboot

As was predictable. Audley should retire. This should be a message to him. I hope he takes it. Wilder? Audley is another name of the cv but he is STILL untested and MUST get beyond b-level opponents. Otherwise he will make a fair living but never move to a different level. At least for me the Jury is still out on Wilder, oh, and I am the greatest fight prophet ever born!

Wilder will get built up now as the next Ali…he just beat a guy who had nothing left who also was beaten by the taxi driver Rogan a few years ago….Wilder still has alot to prove,lets hope after this he stays moving up in the fighters he faces.
