roman… Kindly STFU you imbecile before I get one of my mod buddies (notice I use the plural there? That’s because i’m tight with all of them) to hand over your IP to me and I track you down and cave your skull into idiot dust with a claw hammer. I never said Wlad’s early opposition wasn’t poor, I just said it was better than Wilder’s, which it is even if only marginally. Wilder’s best opponent was a probably a shot to smithereens Owen ”What The Heck I Only Turned up To Cash the Check’ Beck. Beck has lost to virtually every single decent fighter he’s fought, not to mention the fact that he was coming of the back of 7 straight loses when they fed him to Wilder. lol. Ross Purrity>>>>>>>Owen Beck. And by a country mie. lol

Sred is a professional K Bro hater….. Purrity didn’t embarrass anyone and got a fluke win over Wladimir.. WK ran out of gas because he was sick with the flu, underweight, and poorly trained. Wladimir never fought within 10 pounds of his light weight against Purrity again in his life. Even though he was sick Wladimir easily won every round until the 10th. If you want to know how good Purrity was, he out-boxed Tommy Morrison who out-boxed George Foreman—so Ross was no bum. He was a very big and tough man who had limited skill—much of like George Foreman … Purrity lost every round to the slick boxing Chris Byrd—much like Young whipped Foreman, but easier. Byrd lost every round to the masterfully boxing Wladimir Klitschko, before getting knocked out … This tells you what chances Purrity would have had versus a prime-time Wladimir Klitschko — ZERO!!!

SRED’ I’ve Got 300 Scat Mags Hidden Under My Bed and a Tattoo Gonzo’s Beautiful 10” Dong on my Forehead.. Learn to you read you simpleton. I’m fully cognizant of what round the fight ended you grotesque imbecile. I said Wlad gassed in the 10th, not that Purrity stopped him in he 10th. It was plain to see Wlad was feeling the effects of his exertions, hence why his punch output had dropped and he spent most of the round backing off throwing ‘please don’t hit me’ punches with zero snap and power behind them. You think the best poster on this site, and the mean old hombre who’s handed out more ass-whoopings to you than your father is going to make a silly little mistake like that? lol. I’m an walking boxing oracle and I can assure you that you won’t find me slipping up with silly little factual errors, meine homosexuell bruder. You’re going to have to up your game considerably before you even think about hanging with the Gonz let alone catching him out. lol.

I never said Purrity was anything other than a journeyman, albeit a pretty good one at his best. I just said he was one of the toughest SOBs the division has seen and that he was much better than ALL of the stiffs Wilder’s fought. Everyone who knows anything about this sport (ie. not your dumb ass) knows he had a slab of concrete for a chin, hence why he was able to take so many noted punchers the distance and remain vertical after absorbing so many bombs of them. Unless that is you don’t think Wlad, Tommy Morrison, Rahman, Corrie Sanders, Michael Grant, Jorge Luis Gonzalez were hard punchers? lol. He would’ve gone the distance against a prime Vitali too had the ref not pulled a mercy stoppage in the 11th. He beat the Jesus out of a prime Morrison too but the judges gave the decision to Morrison. The ONLY reason Wlad lost that fight was because he ran out of gas against an opponent who was incredibly durable and anyone who tries to dispute that either A. has a massive agenda, B. is full retard, or C. (as in your case) both.

Decker, the reality is that I have you PARANOID, “bias against tall HW”s”thats nonsense one of my favorite HW’s was a tall fighter (Lennox Lewis) reality is that in this Klit era I see guys who have beat NO ONE but they are big being lauded as something special, Wilder, Price, Helenius, Wach the thing all have in common is that they are BIG and that hey are not beating any fighters that show they are true World Class material…. You guys firmly believe that the next dominant HW is going to be a Wlad clone and the truth is these guys really lack skills for the most part… I don’t agree with silly Gonzo about much but Wilder is STIFF as a board coated in cement….!!!!

Posted December 19, 2012 12:27 pm 


SREDMOND

Decker, you WON’T hear me hyping ANY journeyman fighter of Ross Purritys caliber he was a BUM and there is no need to equivocate.. You are trying to defend him because he embarrassed Wlad Klits and thats the HARD reality of the situation… He lost, and lost and lost…. And then he stopped Klits who went on to be stopped 2 other times by fighters he was expected to dominate… We all know about the turnaround in the latter part of his career and I respect him as the dominant HW of this ERA but his road to the top got VERY ugly and pretending Ross Purrity was anything other than a scrub is laughable…He makes Buster Douglas look like Joe Louis by comparison….

dear magicians – anonymous, gonzo – really STOP IDIOTING, please. I’ll be honest and sincere to You – your “comments” are really as Sredmond said – playing with your balls;there is no arguments, just idiocy. guys find nice ladies and chill out. Its really waste of time to point out Meza, Speoght, Corrigan, Weida, Monroe, Young, Wills, Ashley, Maciel, Willianson, Botowamungu (!), Pritchard, Gonzales, Halstead, Husarik, Lampkins, Mclntire, Martin, Koch, Shaheed, Monroe again (why?), Parnell, Dixon, Wingfield, and 24-13-1 punching bag Ross Puritty were “much better” opposition to Wilder’s at least “name known” Harold Sconiers, Damon Reed, Owen Beck, Kerston Manswell or Kelvin Price. Wilder is the same prospect Wlad was that time of his career and if or not he will be something more its time to tell. I have been watching boxing and especially events shown in german tv for several years and REMEMBER those times of Wlad – he got nice ads and publicity made by germans,(like ottke i.e.) but there is no ARGUMENT he was BETTER prospect -after Puritty he was BIG SUSPECT WITH STAMINA and Brewster and Sanders (also Peter I and Dawaryll Williamson) showed us GLASS CHIN of him. Thanks to Emmanuel he was adjusted and made world class champ for the time – shows Manu was really wizard (did really great job with Lennox before, too) and classy. One more time – STOP IDIOTING.

SRED, you’re showing your usual biases to make a “point”.

Ross Puritty wasn’t a world beater but he was a solid-good jouneyman. Had a draw w/Morrison, and tough decision losses to prime Rahman, Grant, and Sanders. He stopped the tough Joe Hipp. Of course his biggest win was vs a very young (and dried out it seems) Wlad.

Upsets happen, else there’s not much reason to watch if you know the exact outcome.

As for Wilder, his power alone makes him a threat to most any HW. Of course I don’t know for sure why his level of opponents has stayed so low for 26 bouts. I criticized Brit Price for fighting Skelton, so I try to be fair. You also seem to have a bias against tall HWs. What are you looking for – the next Mike Tyson?

Posted December 18, 2012 6:54 pm 


SREDMOND

Gonzo, wakeup Ross Purrity NEVER had a prime the pinnacle moment of his career was letting Wlad know that his chin was suspect…He retired with 22 losses and the losing began early and often… Slating a 45 year old Purrity to defeat Wilder does not negate the earlier point made about Wlad taking a whupping early on… But it did not end there, he had to let another suspect fighter like Sanders knock out in 2 rounds…. AGAIN I will be shocked if Wilder makes something of himself at the top level, but with the 400 names running around who knows whats real in the dead HW division absent the Klits

Posted December 18, 2012 6:35 pm

Wilder is indicative of this ERA that craves a TALL fighter or possible Klit opponent… He is indeed STIFF, he does not impress me aside from the obvious power a man his size can generate…. Reality is that the woeful HW era continues and the Wilders and other such boxers will continue to be sold as the next big thing when anyone who can access skills can see there is not much there…

Posted December 18, 2012 6:29 pm 


SREDMOND

Gonzo, while you are sitting around juggling your own testicles in your mouth try to be accurate… Ross Purrity stopped Wlad in the 11th NOT 10th round….Purrity was a TERRIBLE journeyman opponent who had been stopped in his second pro fight and had already booked FOUR 2 fight losing streaks and a 3 fight losing streak that was only interrupted for ONE fight before he stopped Wlad Klits…..So in fairness to Wilder who does NOT impress me Purrity was about a TRASH opponent as you could think of…. If Wilder had been stopped by a fighter of his LOW caliber you would be all over him and using this as evidence of his future irrelevance…. Wlads later success does not negate the fact a BUM stopped him early and it proved to be no fluke because subsequently 2 other fighter who were not special (well abover Purritys level though) stopped him as well… I know, he gassed, he was poisoned, Satan put a spell on him… He lost!

Englis La – don’t care about if or not he is to be koed, hall of fame etc. – I’m not magician. Its the comments that irratate me – take a look into Wlad’s record at the time and tell me the difference – there are more “names” in the Wilder’s resume than in Wlad’s first 25 opponents + embarrasing tko to Puritty – that is why I said give Wilder some credit and addressed to “pros” to stop “idioting” (and try to comment instead). you are doing similar – trying to tell me the future, which is only your prophecy – stop it. Wilder should get at least the same credit at the time of his career as Wlad got (which was very entusiastic the very time) and if or not he is to achieve anything the future will tell. Yours or others prophecies are really bad jokes. just stop it. regards

Wilders trying to step up the level of competition and now that he’s with showtime and has a bit of hype and money on the table to offer people decent fighters will have a reason to fight him. give him a chance, there’s always room for a big punching HW, who doesn’t like to watch dudes get KTFO’d. It’s inevitable that it’s only better opposition each fight now, Showtime would accept no less and Wilder clearly has indicated he wants it.

Alot of you guys are programmed to believe that every fighter 6″6 and above is a terrific fighter with terrific prospects because of what the Klits achieved… For all the talk about David Price, who has he beat that merits the hype?? but the truth is guys think he is a potential Klit clone which is the same hype the now largely exposed Helenius enjoyed before needing a hometown decision over Chisora and looking like garbage against 90 year old Sherman Williams…. Some of these guys have body mass so if they land clean (Wilder) its going to be an issue for the recipient, but that cannot be confused with serious boxing skills.

Wilder is not exactly a joke. Sure his record is inflated, but the dude does have 26 KOs in 26 fights, which suggests that he does have real punching power, and a bronze medal at the Olympics means he has at least some level of skill in addition to natural gifts. That being said, it’s difficult not to think that he’ll be KO’d by the first real heavyweight contender with a punch that he fights. If I were his people, I’d put him in with someone like Sprott or Michael Grant next since either would be a step up for him and should reveal more about whether Wilder can compete for real at HW.

Posted December 17, 2012 12:49 pm

Wilder is a joke. He may have a hefty dig but this is surely negated by his lack of balance, poor movement, work rate and suspect chin.

If he was the real deal he would have been moved up in class a long time ago. His promoter/manager must know this. He looked so crude at the weekend, did virtually nothing for three rounds then threw one telegraphed right hand that bypassed his awful opponents non-existant defence!

Building up a 26 fight KO streak against unambitious club fighters who lack basic boxing skills and who stand in front of you waiting to be hit may well be building up his confidence but it is going to leave him wholly unprepared when he comes to face a skilled operator.

He should be learning his trade, developing his skills, instead he is being let down by his team and is ultimately heading for a fall.

He should be fighting people who are coming to win, not coming to get knocked out and collect a pay check. Until he fights an opponent who is “live” and comes to fight, has a modicum of skill and will throws punches back at him we will learn absolutely nothing about Wilder.

You need to have more than a solid punch to make it at any level, shrewd fighters will make you pay if you do not understand the fundamentals of boxing.

I suspect that the moment he fights someone who has these qualities he will be found wanting.

I cannot believe that Wilder is even being talked about as a contender, or infact even being mentioned in the same breath as prospects like Tyson Fury or David Price. Fury and Price are both paying their dues, they have decent amateur pedigrees and are learning their trade. I am not a particular fan of Fury, but I feel that he would deal with Wilder with relative ease. Price would absolutely destroy either of them.

It beings to mind the phrase “You can’t polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter”. All this platitudinous tripe about him being a ko artist or the next big this is just the hype that is the proverbial glitter to the turd that is Wilder. Fight someone decent and prove me wrong!

If Jennings don’t, Wilder should take on an old man like McCall. Everyone else has an old man on their record. It would be a step up from Kelvin Price. Wilder could retire another boxer, McCall. Wilder might even get some bonus rounds. Wilder should plan on a plan B. And yes, Pulev is the real flavor in town. Pulev would put a zero in Fury, Price and Wilder’s records. Pulev-Wlad 2013

Wilder is as stiff as statue, about as graceful and coordinated as Frankenstein’s monster, and he holds his neck up in the air like a giraffe eating the leaves of the highest branches of the tree. So what if he’s stopped all 26 of the tomato cans they’ve lined up for him to bowl over? Any decent hitting HW would be 26-0 (26 KOs) against those nonentities. Does the name Tyrone Brunson not ring any bells? lol. The guy is nothing more than a bucket full of hype and a walking glass jaw on noodle thin legs waiting to get laid out like a cheap rug by the first decent fighter he faces. I actually feel sorry for him because it’s plain to see he’s actually buying into his own hype too and it’s so obvious to all of us with half an ounce of sense the guy is in for a very rude awakening soon ala Seth Mitchell. I remember seeing that same look of delusional glee in Mitchell’s eyes I saw it Wilder’s the other night when he stopped Timur Ibragimov. You’d think Mitchell had just KO’d Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano, and Joe Louis one after the other the way he was carrying on lol. I knew he was going to get KTFO before he got anywhere near contesting legitimate titles just like I knew Peter McNeeley and Kimbo Slice were (I remember when the brainwashed imbeciles were claiming Slice was going to beat Fedor and the Klitschkos – and some of those retards were serious about that too. lol). Wilder is just the latest American hype job waiting to be exposed and that’s all there is to it. The hype he’s getting from some quarters right now is bad enough but it’s going to go through the roof if he actually beats someone with a pulse.

I disagree with those match ups… Price was sick with the flu saturday and still got up before the 10 count and was fine. So not sure how much power chicken legs really has behind that big right, both guys looked tight in the fight.

Wilder vs Jennings would be great but I’d rather see Wilder Knock out Fury. Fury was almost out by a featherfisted gypsy- Pajkic had him hurt bad and down and Pajkic cannot punch at all, he has a less than 20% KO rate and he did it with Deontay’s bread and butter, the right hand. If that was Deontay who’s a much more capable boxer than Pajkic landing on Fury it would be lights outs. Fury’s chin is really bad and there’s no way he avoids punches for 12 rounds, at some point he’ll get caught by Wilder a guy Wlad called the fastest hands at HW.

I agree with the previous poster that Sprott would be a good next opponent for Wilder. If he really wants Jennings next why the hell not, Jennings is probably the best American HW prospect and if Wilder beats him it sets him up for a showdown with Arreola or the winner of the Banks-Mitchell rematch. And in about a year it would maybe we’ll see him in against Fury or Price. None of these guys are ready for the Klits so they may as well fight each other for the next year or two.

Ban corrupt judges

In some ways it doesn’t matter too much a prospect having a “padded” record. Unfortunately for Deontay,his record is building but his basic skills do not seem to be improving too much. He won’t learn in in the ring with the calibre of opposition he is facing, and he seems not be getting it in training. I would have thought that sharing training with Wlad should have made a difference but I’ve yet to see it. Hopefully it is not a case of Deontay simply being unable to acquire the skills he will need if he faces some live opposition. The current hot european prospects – Tyson Fury and David Price, are way to much for Deontay at the moment .

Wilder needs to take a serious step up in competition.

Posted December 16, 2012 4:43 pm

AT this point Wilder looks terrible. I give him credit for the KO, but I wasn’t the 1 punch kO that Showtime analysts saw. Wilder actually caught him with a right hand moments earlier that wobbled him pretty bad. I haven’t seen the replay to tell if it was behind the head or not, but it was a right during the clinch. So, his opponent was really stumbling around when he was caught with the KO. At this point Wilder is a fighter, not a boxer. Wilder fights with his chin up in the air. He doesn’t use his jab. He can be dangerous if he hits you, but that is the same with most heavyweights. This is a guy who could have really benefited from an Emanuel Steward. I am not sure why it takes big guys so long to learn the fight game. Wlad was brought along very slowly too. He was fighting a basket ball player. Price’s footwork was terrible. He looked like he was wearing Ronald McDonald clown shoes and yet he looked the better of the two until he got out of position.

Wilder was VERY lucky to win his Olympic bronze. He beat an Algerian street vendor 10-4 in the first round and then in the next round he won on countback against an out of shape Moroccan pastry chef after they finished tied at 10 a piece. Most observers thought the roly-poly Moroccan deserved the decision but had they given it to him the Americans would’ve finished up without any medals so they gave it to Wilder instead.

Cut the guy some slack. Maybe because of is power no one wants to engage him

Ernie – all we can do is stick around and wait…but for a guy with sooooo many physical gifts, showing us soooooo little, is sooooo disappointing!!!

Time will tell, stick around, you may learn something…

Ernie – how do we kno Deontay will box Jennings ears off? We’ve never seen him box yet! He’s fought total bums until last night. Last night was his first real opposition, and he only threw 2 punches in 3 rounds!!!

RealAmerican….wow!! He was gauging price?!! U call that gauging??? Following a guy, not cutting off the ring…rarely, if ever throwing jab or other punch…doing nothing but following him like a zombie….price didn’t do much either, besides back up a lot and lean his head the right constantly…of course a right hand was the answer for wilder, but anyone who took boxing 101 knows that opportunity was there for wilder in the fight’s first 20 seconds…wilder, Breland and real American r boxing retards!!

Put both of them together in the same ring ,,lets give the fans a fight in the heavy weight division that people can actually get excited about !!!!!

If you watched the fight, and judging by the comments most of you didn’t, you will see that Wilder was gauging Kelvin Price. If Price had gotten up, Wilder would have been a lot more conventional than he was at the start of the fight. He avoided Price’s punches for most of the fight looking for the right opportunity. When he got it, he made Price pay. Maybe that’s a little unconventional for all the John Ruiz/Tyson Fury/ Bryant Jennings fans here, but its a formula that will be tough for anyone to overcome.

Akbar – u r right – but the heavyweight division sucks in the pros, too!!! If the first sucks then so does the second. I say abolish the heavyweight division. Jennings could make the cruiser limit.

Wilder looks ungainly, but that’s deceptive. He’ll be a Top 10 ranked fighter and earn his world title shot.

Congrats to Wilder. Wilder is still a jaw waiting to be hit. Jennings should oblige Wilder.

The Akbar One

Wilder befuddles me. He was an amateur Bronze medalist at the Olympics was he not? The heavyweight division must absolutely suck in the amateurs if he got Bronze. He doesn’t even box like he has any amateur background. He boxes like he just picked up boxing a few months ago. Golden Boy better keep moving him at the Chavez Jr. pace, get him 40 to 50 fights and see if he can be molded into a viable heavyweight. He looks absolutely horrible.

Oh lawd! Jennings will smash that walking glass jaw on stilts to bits.

And to think, the product that Wilder put forth last night was the result of 4 years of grooming!!! What a complete and utter waste of time! I’d like to get excited by an American heavyweight, but it is clearly not Wilder. He does not deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Bryant Jennings!!

Bryant Jennings is a professional fighter! Wilder is just a guy who followed his opponent around for 3 rounds and threw 2 punches. And, prior to that, he fought about 25 one armed guys who all earned D’s in Remedial PE class!! I know he was excited last night but how are we supposed to get excited about this guy?? He does have an impressive body but impressive bodies don’t make contenders. I think Wilder is more suited for tuff man competitions. Is Mark Breland so punch drunk that he can’t help him a little more?!!
