whatever

Haye said he sparred with Wilder and “testified” that his punches and skills were real. And regarding his 31 KOs in 31 fights, he said that even if his competition was hand-picked, why don’t other fighters have the same record. Meaning, he can really punch. Lastly, he said when he sparred with him, he was wearing headgear and wilder was using 16oz gloves. That being said, when wilder punches someone who is not wearing headgear with 10oz gloves, he is going to do some serious damage.

@Eli Dixon A.T.G … Wilder can only fight guys who are willing to get into a ring with him. These contenders talk big until Golden Boy rolls out a contract. Then they get cold feet.

Nobody wants to get their freakin’ head ripped off.

@tark yeah I respect the scott scalp thats why I said first 30 (scott was 31 ) I know im gettin technical . I hope wilder is the real deal but im old school n believe ur comp should steadily improve till u reach the top . For this reason im sceptical of deontay

brza da…, Scott was 35-1, hardly a tomato can.. Liakhovich was a World Heavyweight Champion.

The results of those fights helped to scare off contenders.

@tark so uf wulder is so anxious for hard fights how come he never progressed from fighting tomato cans to mid level guys to top 10 heavy weights . Usually after about 10 fights u move from tomato cans to mid level u don t fight cans for 30 fights . Am I wrong ?

@ Custard.., You have no clue what you’re talking about.

Bryant Jennings.., “I have no interest in going near Deontay Wilder.”

Tony Thompson.., “I’m not interested in a fight with Deontay.”

News source Boxing News 24… “Deontay has said many times in the past that he’d love to fight the 6’5″ Thompson, but Thompson would never agree to it. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer also said in the past that he was interested in matching Deontay vs. Thompson. However, Thompson himself said he wasn’t looking for a fight against Deontay.”

Charr is a fat pig who can’t fight… He called out Povetkin too and got smashed.

Wilder answered both Fury and Browne’s twitter call outs with positive replies.. Richard Shaefer said he wanted the fights very badly—but both of the heavyweights backed out after seeing how super anxious Wilder was to fight them.

Wilder had a fight scheduled with Dereck Chisora in England. He couldn’t get a visa and asked Chisora to come to Vegas for the fight… Chisora declined..

TARK

Patrice Jones says.., “Tark. Wilder punches too hard for his own good.”

Nobody can never punch too hard – just like you can never be too rich.

The important thing is to take something off your punches and not throw so hard… Flick your shots with a lot of speed and no load — and throw harder when you have a very clear opening or your opponent is hurt.

Wilder still cranks and throws too hard too often. That’s amateurish.. He has to get away from that at this level because he’s not going to smash everyone who’s a high ranking heavyweight.. He has to use his great reach, range, and speed – and try to set people up and be a lot more patient and box.

Sub-novice Amateurs believe everyone wants to see a brutal slugfest so they throw like crazy. Tough Man Contest stuff.

George Foreman didn’t throw as hard when he came back at age 38.. George had a lot of years to think about what he might have done wrong.. He took a lot off his punches so he could go longer and avoid some hits himself..

Nothing saps your energy like a toe-to-toe slugfest. You can do Hagler-Hearns for a maximum of 3 rounds – but you can box at a hard pace for 12 rounds with no problem.

Tark. Wilder punches too hard for his own good. It’s actually a hinderence at this juncture of his career. Someone like Liakhovic, although well faded, was expected to be bale to go some rounds and thereby demonstrate Wilder’s stamina and workrate ability. He’s been talking since the amateurs about how good he thinks his engine and durability is, but as a professional has never been able to show it. There’s NO mistake though, this guy is a genuine top top destroyer of a puncher. He’s in the Earnie Shavers, Gerry Cooney, George Foreman category. You get caught flush you don’t recover. The Stiverne Wilder fight is fascinating to me, Vitali’s relinquising the belt actually freshened things, even though we all would like to see him keep fighting

For instance… Floyd Mayweather was pretty frank after his Cotto fight… “I got hit too much… I brought my father back in to address the defensive problems.”

Custard says.., “Given the number of people that called Wilder out and want some of that china-chin.”

Who called Wilder out??? Jennings?… Fury?… Pulev?… Haye?… Perez?… Arreola?… Glazkov?… Adamek?… Povetkin?… Browne?… Stiverne?…

GTFOOH with your BULLSHlT!!! … If Wilder wasn’t Stiverne’s mandatory challenger NOBODY ranked would fight him.. That’s not good for Wilder.. That’s not good for the heavyweight division.

What’s happening is this … Heavyweights are becoming too cautious with their careers… there’s tons of top heavyweights who haven’t fought each other — but I think it’s the managers more than the fighters.

They always forget that Wladimir was KO’d 3 times before he ever reached his potential as a boxer… If nobody kicks your ass — how would you know that you really need to work on something???

I do not think Wilder can go 12 rounds before gassing. Stiverne will knock his azz out in 7 rounds.

Posted July 18, 2014 10:58 am 


Bill Patrice Jones

I like the way Stiverne fights. He is patient and doesn’t over expend his energy. I think it’s highly beneficial for him to be flat footed because guys like him who are naturally extremely muscular often tire too badly when they try to bounce and move. Also remember that at Samuel Peter’s destructive heyday Stiverne was a permanent feature of his sparring partners solely because he was one of the few who could take his shots. However, as monstrous a puncher Samuel Peter was, I unfortunately believe Wilder hits harder. Stiverne needs to whack him, and I mean whack him early on. Slow him down, put fear and doubt in his mind and then work from there. If Stiverne has a low guard and starts slow ala the Arreola rematch then there’s no reason why Deontay can’ charge him and just decapitate him with those viciously fast mega punches. I doubt we will ever see a decision fight with Wilder win or lose

Posted July 18, 2014 1:08 am 


Stiverne is smarter than that

If you watched Corrie Sanders, he didn’t jump on Wladimir straight away. He got his bearings first for a few seconds… then he got his opportunity and exploded. Stiverne is a lot smarter than he looks and can follow the same strategy.

He waited on Arreloa a lot in their second encounter — and he was just looking for the perfect opening. He can’t afford to wait that long this time or he’ll be a gonner … but he still wants to land something really big to get Wilder started.

He doesn’t want to be flinging punches with Deontay — he wants to get him hurt pretty good so he can throw with impunity. Wilder is not an expert clincher so Bermane has a good chance to get him.

Fury is younger n has been matched way tougher than wilder . When haye pulled out of his fight wit tyson they sent out feelers to wilder (who had been sparring with haye ) and they got back crickets .

Stiverne needs to jump on Wilder straight away and try to land something meaningful in round 1. The single question with Wilder is his chin holding up. Don’t be surprised though iF Wilder blasts Stiverne away. His power is utterly devastating

At least this fight will give Deontay some top level experience and give him some rounds — win or lose.

Even is he loses how bad could it be??? Wladimir Klitschko got KO’d 3 X before he hit his stride — the problem is all these jackass managers don’t want to take any tough fights versus hard punchers.

Love-the-Sport

I don’t think this fight is going to happen … hand injury or whatever the excuse.

But I am glad it is not happening.

I would rather see Wilder in 2-3 more fights with C+ level competition — get rounds, build skills, get knockouts.

And I would like to see Stiverne fight on the same nights against C+ level guys and do the same — more rounds, improve skills, get knockouts.

Then these two B level guys should fight in about one year for the right to fight Klitschko or whoever is left.

Wilder vs. Stiverne was coming too early. I hope they cancel.

This is Stiverne’s best chance to beat Wilder… It’s his best shot. He wouldn’t want to fight Deontay after he’s had a couple of tough fights that went 10 or 12 rounds.

Wes, why are you and others assuming Stiverne is scared or avoiding Wilder. He’s voiced his desire to fight him. Initially he was wavering whether he’ll try to set up unification with Wlad , but since he has to fight Pulev, now he’s up for this fight with wilder. In other words what gives you guys the idea that King is trying to “milk the title”.

Pratt i would pick Stiverne by KO as well. I am not sure the fight is gonna happen though. I think Wilder just might be talking out of his a$$ and then when he wins fights and they ask him about facing one of the champions he will say “talk to my manager baby, it’s whatever my team puts in front of me, i’m blessed” . They may just wait till Wlad retires and win a vacant belt. Or try to fight Tyson Fury for a big payday first.

Posted July 17, 2014 12:32 am

I believe in Stiverne. I was very impressed and happy to see a HW show such speed and snap in his punches. His footwork is a little planted. He reminds me a bit of Ray Mercer. Wilder i have no idea if he is as good as he is billed. I absolutely do not trust his chin, or his mental toughness. And i have not seen his stamina either. It seems with Wilder his handlers are just moving him like a Jermain Taylor, keep him winning to get him a title shot without him even facing one live body on the way. Then hope for the best and he will have made enough money to retire on after the rematch win lose or draw. The one drawback i see in Stiverne is he is already 35, a young 35 perhaps. But that is still pretty old HW or not to have just arrived on the world scene. Hopefully he will have a few years in him still.

Posted July 17, 2014 12:30 am

Haye was on the verge of KOing Wilder in sparring. Wilder windmills and leaves himself open for a bomb much like the one Stiverne planted on Arreola’s nose. I am going with Stiverne by way of KO. A Brutal KO!!

This author is seriously stupid to say the Klitschko Bros are robotic and impersonal. They’re very relaxed and love people to death. They treat people and reporters with respect, consideration, and kindness.

Stiverne is a good guy too, but he can get a little full of himself… He’s putting Deontay down a “little kid” who needs attention.

He thinks DW is just a brat 4-round fighter cutting up, while Bermane’s been a full 12 rounds while accelerating the action all the way through the final stanza.

But I’d say Stiverne needs some attention as well. He’ll get tons of attention when Wilder gets a chance to tee up that massive head of Bermane’s. Deontay will be flinging lethal punches … coming from left field, right field, and off the floor.. Don’t get in the way of one or you’ll never get out of the 4th.. I’ll give you a 40% chance to survive that long.

If you do — it’s uncharted territory for Deontay. Let’s see if his demeanor changes at all in the 5th round, or if he gets hit hard on the chin. This is a fascinating fight.

“Stiverne is a breath of fresh air in a division dominated by the robotic, impersonal Klitschko brothers for the past decade.” – This author is a mental midget. The K Bros donate huge sums to charity and run charitable foundations. Vitali has the highest KO% of any heavyweight champion in history. Wlad is approaching Joe Louis’ record of successful title defenses, is well spoken in three languages and highly educated. But somehow since they’re not American they’re impersonal robots. Author’s a tard, which is why he didn’t even sign his name to this lame story.

Make or break for both fighters. A great test for wilder a big jump up in class and we will see if he is the real deal or some over rated hype job. If siv losses then at 35 it will be hard for him to make a come back and wilder has only one way to win by brutal KO. If siv wins then he can have a few easy fights ie winner of chisora and fury before facing kilt in the biggest heavy weight fight in a long time. Either way this will be an entertaining but quick fight well worth watching

wilder is a major threat to stiverne. He has a freakish punch and a freakish ability to land it”well at least against poor to average competitors”. Stiverne is a solid heavyweight with a good defense, good chin and a big punch who is slow footed has a low work rate and gets fatigued in mid to late rounds. He struggled with a tall 6’5 Austin. Wilder has at least the same skill level as austin but is much taller, much faster, has a long jab with is pretty good and a monster punch that austin does not have. Wilder has the advantage in this fight.

I’m looking forward for the fight between WBC world champ Bermane Stiverne vs. the undefeated #1 WBC world heavyweight title contender Deontay Wilder.

I think Wilder have a decent chanse of taking Stiverne out.
The fight is not signed yet but it must be done as Stiverne is obligated to defend his WBC title against Wilder next or Stiverne & Don King must pay Wilder a “step-a-side-fee” for a couple of $millions in order to fight some one else next but Wilder I belive will not accept that.

Lets get it done so the fight will happen this year.

Posted July 16, 2014 7:58 am

All in all guys. it’s a good matchup in heavyweight division. we had some recently and will have some soon. that’s what the division needs. my pick here is Stivern due to his experience. talent. fast hands and very solid defence. wilder is just unproven yet. yes he can bang but that’s about it. a windmill tactic leads to loss against skilled or just experienced fighter. remember monte barret against tye fields?

Buy the way. Very soon we’ll see fury vs chisora fight. two big and slow dudes but still. a good matchup for the division. they are no David toe haye though. my pick here is fury. chisora is done and finished long ago.

and don’t forget the real championship fight between the man (and future father of TWO) Vladimir Klitschko and the second best in the division right now. a Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev. The skill set of Pulev is great. he’s not a walk in the park for any top 10 heavyweight out there. and probably could beat all of ‘em not named Vladimir Klitschko. A great fight for the division. now no one will say that Vlad ducks his mandatories.

heavyweight division definitely is not dead.

Stiverne has good boxing skills but are they good enough for him to stay away from Wilder for 12 rounds. Eventually Wilder will land lets just hope Stiverne’s chin can take it. I can see both fighters being dropped in this fight only Wilder will take more damage. Stiverne by close UD

its hearns throwing at duran. this one is easy. wilder already knocked out somebody with more boxing skills than stiverne has, in about 30 seconds. all deon needs to do is move, box, box, move, move box, grab, move, box, grab, move, box, punch, grab the belt. he doesn’t need to throw that hard. stiverne can’t take a hard shot.

Wilder’s SKILLS are POOR. When your SKILLS are POOR you’re a LOSS waiting to happen. WHEN is the question. He has almost as MUCH punching power as I DO SO he still is pretty formidable. IF you don’t know how to avoid flush punches you’re getting knocked out. Tell your trainer to bring you a pillow.

I knocked 250lb heavyweights clean out with left hooks that landed no harder than Wilder’s shot on Scott’s temple. Malik didn’t expect the punch and didn’t see it. The right hand followed and helped put Scott in a daze.

He wasn’t out, but he wasn’t responding well. He got a little tangled in the ropes and couldn’t beat the count… it was a little like the Chisora fight — so Scott is going to have real problems getting fights from here on out. He never even got a punch off.

Not a good warm up fight for Wilder either. A freakin’ goose egg experience wise.

Vladimir Klitschko beat Wilder from one side of the ring to the other, knocked Wilder down, outboxed him easily, no contest, those are not rumors. At least one person from Vlad’s camp was there at ringside to see it. Wilder said he learned a lot from Vlad…………………….

Stiverne should knock Wilder out, but will that fight ever happen? Don King said he was going to take Stiverne on a world tour to fight no name fighters……………Can’t tell much about Wilder’s power, he hasn’t fought anyone who can fight at all. Scott appeared to take a dive as he did not land the punch that was supposed to have knocked him down…………………….

I wonder if there’s ever been a heavyweight title challenger before, who’s never been through 4 full rounds as professional fighter. This has to be really scary for Deontay.

If Bermane starts tagging Deontay on the chin it will could be like Sanders vs Klitschko.

Wladimir was about Deontay’s age… He had 42 professional fights and could blow you away with a smashing right hand… But for some reason WK had no idea in the world how to clinch … He never HAD to clinch before, and could never get his head clear after the 1st Sanders’ bomb landed on his chin.

The unnamed idiot who wrote this piece said, “Stiverne is a breath of fresh air in a division dominated by the robotic, impersonal Klitschko brothers for the past decade.”

There’s nothing impersonal or robotic about the K Bros. They both speak English and several other languages so they can communicate and relate better with fans worldwide. Vitali is the mayor of Kiev and gave Mike Tyson a tour of the city several years ago.

Every boxer to works in a Klitschko training camp loves it. They’re treated very well… like friends… ask Deontay.

I’d actually be inclined to narrowly favour Wilder over Stiverne. Stiverne is good, but I’m not sure if he’s quite good enough to get around Wilder’s range and power.

Wilder needs rounds and decent competition. And by decent, I mean D+ maybe C-. Lord knows DLH will never put him in with anyone close to dangerous until it’s time for the big dance. I understand the strategy, but it’s not doing Wilder any good. I watched a video of Haye sparring Wilder. It was edited, but Wilder was getting nailed a lot and Haye wasn’t even wearing head gear.

“You only have to tap that Wilder chin and he suddenly looks like a baby giraffe juggling a ball of pubes.” – That’s the concern about Wilder. I suspect it’s why GBP has kept his level of comp at the basement level. Note his one opponent ranked in the top 20 can’t crack an egg. Stiverne can.

Love-the-Sport

This is an interesting fight — but it is probably bad for the business of boxing and in the end it is probably bad for boxing fans.

– Stiverne is an interesting heavyweight with power.

– Wilder is an interesting heavyweight at 6’8″ with power.

Putting these together and getting a knockout will eliminate or reduce an up and coming heavyweight with power at a time when no one really knows these guys.

It makes more sense to put this fight together in about one year after these guys develop more of a following and develop more skills.

My prediction: Wilder will win by decision in a boring fight.

Why? Wilder doesn’t have the skills yet to hurt Stiverne whereas Stiverne has more skills and speed but he doesn’t have the reach to catch Wilder clean in the face. Wilder jab should win a boring fight.

This again — would be bad for boxing. Better off watching these guys get knock-outs even if that is against C level fighters.

If Stiverne can weather the first few rounds of Wilder Storm then, Stiverne can take Wilder into deeper waters and drown him with heavy punches. Straight forward inside fighting to smother Wilder and his reach and head slaps. Stiverne can KO wilder.

i just want Wilder to fight alive guy. i want my screen saver to be him flat knocked the f-u-c-k out. this guy has no CV only fights stiffs, biggest hype job. to get a shot at a title with that CV is laughable, but sad.

I think Wilder should step up his opponents, because what is he going to do if he does win the belt, is he going to go back to fighting the other 30 stiffs.

I can’t see one area where wilder is better. I new stivern was to strong for chris areola and if stivern comes in shape and brings his A game he should take wilder out.

And don’t anyone mention Klitschko okay? His fights are all fixed, he consumes peds like I do McDonald’s on a daily basis, he got waxed in sparring by Deontay which is why he sent him back home to the USA early. That pathetic paper champion has to go.

Not sure winning the “coveted” belt was all that major of an achievement. It was a solid top 10 win but it is not at all clear that Stiverne stands as second only to Wladimir Klitschko. There’s a whole lot of proving left to do. A win over Wilder won’t satisfy that question either. His 31-win 31-ko career still leaves many questions given the makeup of the opposition he’s faced. All-in-all this is a good match up of fighters who likely are near the top 5.

Posted July 15, 2014 3:37 pm 


no no

Wilder is greatest puncher in the hw division since a young Gentleman Gerry Cooney was annhilating people back in the 80’s. Stiverne is the most formidable champ since Tyson was called Kid Dynamite. It should be the biggest fight in history. I lean towards Stiverne but Wilder, with that Cooney-like punching power along with Cooneyesque stamina, work ethic, heart, etc, will be dangerous throughout the fight as long as it goes.

Simply stated: Wilder has not earned a title fight. However, given the sh1te quality of his opponents, he is actually an unknown. After 30 fights he is still untested. That’s utterly pathetic! He has a punchers chance against a reasonable but far from great Stiverne who is by no means stellar himself. Stiverne will be too much for the hype job and win by one sided Ko inside five if they ever meet. You heard it here first.

Freddie Roach Ate My Hamster

The impersonal Klitschkos?! Wlad’s style, insistence on being foreign and habit of winning at a canter doesn’t excite a lot of fans but he always comes across as almost too nice to be the undisputed HW champion.

Stiverne should wipe the floor with Wilder, who has been fed a string of one-sided fights and not yet faced anyone in the top 10. There’s always a puncher’s chance and Wilder has a decent amateur pedigree but I think his management will regret keeping him in easy fights for so long. There’s such a gulf in class between Audley Harrison, Malik Scott and Stiverne!
