Fury trashes Deontay Wilder and David Price

fury5423By Jeff Sorby: Big 6’9” unbeaten former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (20-0, 14 KO’s) didn’t see much he liked of Deontay Wilder (26-0, 26 KO’s) in watching his 3rd round knockout win over Kelvin Price (13-1, 6 KO’s) last Saturday night.

Fury sees Wilder as having little more than his right hand going for him, and he doesn’t think that’s going to be enough for Wilder to amount to much in the heavyweight division. Fury, 24, also thinks that his recent opponent Kevin Johnson would beat Wilder if the two guys went at it.

Fury said on his social media site twitter “Just watched Wilder fight! Not impressed at all. He couldn’t beat Kevin Johnson! Very raw and open to big shots. Long way to go; big punch. Wilder and [David] Price are the same, untested hype! To be a top fighter you need more than a punch! They have a long way to go. Why not fight each other.”

Fury isn’t giving Wilder much credit for his knockout win over Price for some reason. To be sure, Wilder did look really raw in that fight, and he definitely needs a lot of improvement.

Deontay Wilder targeting Bryant Jennings for next fight

By Jeff Sorby: Undefeated heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder (26-0, 26 KO’s) wants to fight undefeated heavyweight prospect Bryant Jennings (16-0, 8 KO’s) next after Wilder defeated previously unbeaten Kevlin Price (13-1, 6 KO’s) by a 3rd round knockout on Saturday night at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. Wilder knocked Price out with a monster right hand in the 3rd round to get the knockout win.

After the fight Wilder said this as quoted by RingTV “I want to be back in the ring as soon as possible, and I definitely want Bryant Jennings. I want him…the fans want it. There can only be one of us.”

That would be a good fight but also a potentially difficult one for Wilder right now because he would absolutely have to knock Jennings out in order to win the fight because Jennings’ style is more suited to winning a decision Wilder’s fight style. Jennings throws a lot of punches, has a great jab, and has decent but not great power.

Deontay Wilder battles Kelvin Price tonight

By Michael Collins: Two giant 6’7” heavyweights Deontay Wilder (25-0, 25 KO’s) and Kelvin Price (13-0, 6 KO’s) battle it out tonight in a fight for the vacant WBC Continental Americas heavyweight title at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. The two of them have vastly different fighting style, however, with Wilder throwing pure power shots, and Price more of a pure boxer with limited power.

Price does have decent power, but it’s nothing like the kind that Wilder. There’s no comparison in that regard. Wilder is one of those rare heavyweights with classic one-punch knockout power in either hand, and if he connect on Price’s chin he’s going to put him on the canvas. That’s a given for this fight. Price will do down.

The only question is whether Price can get up and resume his safety first boxing style. He’s someone that will be looking to jab his way to a decision, because he’s not going to be looking to throw too many actual punches at Wilder because it’s just not safe to that. If Price starts throwing power shots, he’s going to leave himself open for Wilder’s monster shots.

Deontay Wilder battles Kelvin Price on Saturday night

By Michael Collins: Heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder (25-0, 25 KO’s) takes the next step in his career on Saturday night against a very good heavyweight in unbeaten Kelvin Price (13-0, 6 KO’s) for the Vacant WBC Continental Americas title in a fight televised by Showtime on the undercard of Amir Khan vs. Carlos Molina at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. The late Emanuel Steward was very high on the 6’7” Wilder before Steward passed away, and he saw the 27-year-old as the number #1 heavyweight in the United States, and the heavyweight prospect with the best chance of winning a world title.

That says a lot about Wilder because there are a lot of good young heavyweights out there like David Price and Tyson Fury, and Wilder has been kind of hidden away compared to those press and the hype those guys have received.

Wilder is facing a tall fighter on Saturday in 6’7” Price. Wilder has been accustomed to being the much bigger guy in his fights, but that won’t be the case when he faces Price. He’ll have someone looking him straight in the eye and it’s going to be a real test of Wilder to see how he responds in a fight like this.

Steward himself told RingTV that he sees Wilder fighting for a world title in the next 12 months.

The 6’7″ Wilder has got the power and the hand speed to be something special. He’s not just a tall slow guy like a lot of taller fighters are. He’s got excellent hand speed and he can punch with major power with either hand. His right hand is possibly the best in all of boxing, and his left hook isn’t far behind. In his recent sparring with Wladimir to get him ready for his fight with Mariusz Wach, Wilder very emerged as his #1 sparring partner and Wladimir was really impressed with him.
