I sentence that contains the words: “champion, near future and Deontay Wilder” will not be taken seriously. The guy looks horrible like a tough man contest fighter against bums. Tyson fought better competition but still kinda bums… When he ran into someone real he got clapped. Wilder is no Tyson, he will fall much more easily to lesser competition.

Fight Aficionado

Ready to step it up eh? I’ll believe it when he’s in the ring with someone other than a punching bag. Author ignores that Wilder also said if you ask any fighter if they’re ready to face anyone now they’ll say yes, but GBP has a plan and they’re sticking to the plan. That plan is cherrypick the weakest comp you can get away with.

I am so tired of this pretenders who likes to talk, but have no clue how walk the walk, listen PRETENDER go find yourself somebody to fight in the top 50 first , beat them convincingly, and then only then u can open your mouth and say something about CHAMPS. Get in line and have some patience and PLZ fight some real talent not some punching bags

Vitali was Champ when he had 24 fights – this US bum has still not fought a top250 boxer…..

I think its good management from team wilder. If he fights two more times this year agaonst guys like witherspoon,mansour and guinn next year he will be ready for harris and grant. Nothing wrong with moving slowly if your fighting regularly

Yes, put Deontay in with some of the old timers who could teach him a trick or two while going the distance with him. It’s pretty obvious Wilder can bang. But what about his defense against a tested veteran, as well as his chin, and his ability to counter-punch? I’d throw Meehan, McBride, Botha and Oquendo into the mix of possible, experienced opponents for Wilder. He might also learn from fighting guys his own height like Jens Krull, or Skip Scott.

Another Lacy from USA. The guy has not fought at top250 boxer yet and now he calls out the Klits…….

Nice post. I couldn’t agree more. Holmes would be a great move at this point. He’s also at a crossroads right now, and like several other solid C’s he is a win away from getting into contention. Holmes would come to fight. I don’t really rate a Gavern or an Estrada though as the next step. Gaverns style is such that he might land some wild shots, but basically he’d eat stiff jabs and catch L hooks of his face until he looked bad enough for the ref to pull him out, and Estrada could be bulldozed like Manswell. And those guys got nothing to gain except maintaining their steady flow of T/KOs and wide UDs. Holmes though…….this fight could get his name into the mix. Grant…….yeah, NO. Grants got a bit to much power and has shown that he’s still got a good amount of pop behind his own R hand. Wilder hasd gotten sloppy at times and has been hit by guys…..Grant could derail him, and at this point, Grant doesnt need to get this kindof win and then suddenly be in line for a Klitschko (ROFL).
