Re: Deontay Wilder?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Wilder is going to die on the vine.
The garbage he's fighting is not making him better, it's making him worse.
No excuse to not have taken a live, tested challenge by now. I call bullshit
on any attempt to excuse his slow progress, he's been a pro for over 4 years
now. If he can't learn the craft enough to accept a challenge in that time,
he never will. I'm not saying he should be fighting for a title yet, I'm saying
he should be fighting someone that doesn't have a second job.
Vitali Klitschko 27th fight, was on his second defense of the WBO title
Wlad Klitschko 27th fight, fought for the WBC International HW Title
Kubrat Pulev 17th fight, won regional HW titles
Tomasz Adamek 27th fight, won regional CW titles
David Haye 27th fight, fought Wlad
Alexander Povetkin 25th fight, 3rd defense of WBA title
Tony Thompson 27th fight, fought for state title
Tyson Fury 20th fight, fought HW Eliminator
Odlanier Solis 19th fight, won regional HW title (already fought a Klitschko)
Robert Helenius 18th fight, already fought for and defended, multiple regional titles
Johnathon Banks 27th fight, fighting for regional HW title
Steve Cunningham 27th fight, fighting for CW title
The only one that had not done more by this point in their career is Tony Thompson, not only is that debatable, but he also doesn't have the pull in marketing the Wilder has available.
For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.
