Watching a professional fighter get in a bar fight would be a truly traumatizing experience
Too many titles flooded the market.
Too many mexicans.
True. His right hand puts people to sleep....it is maybe the most devastating punch in boxing right now. But he needs a good trainer to refine his talent. E Steward would have done wonders for him I think.
Don't doubt it, would just like to see how he looks when he's not wailing on people. There is a kazahk middleweight named Gennady Golovkin who is basically the Mike Tyson of 160lbs. The biomechanics in his punches is so good it doesn't even look like he's punching hard. I watched his last fight against a former title contender and he ended the fight with a left hook right below the ribs...the guy curled up in a ball and was wincing in pain and gasping for air while he was being counted out.
Makes no sense when top boxers make way more than MMA fighters.
No doubt, Golovkin is a bad ass. Lucas Mattysse is another powerful puncher in a lower class who looks effortless.
I really want to see Wilder thump Tyson Fury's goofy ass. They should make that match happen. Both are undefeated, relatively untested, prospects.
And I saw the last Golovkin fight too. "Fetal position" doesn't even begin to describe the condition of that guy after that body shot.
Wilder is a really good prospect. The earlier poster was correct about him getting into boxing a little late, and they've brought him along slowly so far, so it's probably about time to increase his level of competition. I've seen Deontay do some pretty good boxing, and I don't think that vid did him much justice. That being said, if he keeps fighting bums, he won't get tested enough to have to actually rely on his boxing skills rather than just mauling people. His jab and right hand are two of the best in boxing.
Americans don't usually fair well in olympic style "point matches" so the fact he medaled is impressive but you're right, that video doesn't show off any boxing acumen.
What do you expect when supreme overlord Dana White hand picks his fights and keeps all the money? And if UFC deserved more money than boxing they'd get more pay per view buys than boxing, free market reigns supreme.
