Deontay Wilder winding down training for Dominique Alexander fight on 8/27

Image: Deontay Wilder winding down training for Dominique Alexander fight on 8/27By Scott Gilfoid: One of the best up and coming heavyweight talents in the division Deontay Wilder (17-0, 17 KO’s is putting the finishing touches to his training camp for his next fight against Dominique Alexander (20-11-1, 9 KO’s) on August 27th at the Water Oaks Farm Arena, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Wilder, only 25, is a 2008 Olympic heavyweight bronze medalist for the U.S, and one of the biggest punchers in the heavyweight division.

This huge 6’7″ heavyweight could very well be the hardest puncher in the division with his right hand. Wilder has got amazing one-punch power, and has knocked out all 17 of his opponents, most of which have occurred in the first couple of rounds. He’s still working on developing his left hand and also needs to learn how to throw a stronger jab.

However, those are a things that will come along in time as he develops. But his right hand is simply amazing. With that weapon alone, I would favor him against all of the top young heavyweight prospects such as Tyson Fury, David Price, Robert Helenius, Kubrat Pulev and Denis Boytsov.

After Wilder makes short work of Alexander next week, I’d like to see Wilder step up against some of the fringe contenders in the heavyweight division like say Fury or Manuel Charr to see how well Wilder does. I can see him knocking both those guys out. Fury has no power and Charr is more of a slow slapper. This wouldn’t take long to put in a highlight reel knockout against those guys and then move up against bigger and better opposition.
