Adamek’s trainer: Deontay Wilder could be the next big thing

By Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten heavyweight talent Deontay Wilder (21-0, 21 KO’s) is slowly picking up believers in his ability to shape into a possible world champion in the next future. One of the believers is trainer Roger Bloodworth, who feels that Wilder could be a future star due to his speed and power.

Bloodworth told “Deontay Wilder, who is very quick. He is maybe 2-3 years away from getting a shot at the heavyweight title, but he has time, being just 26-years-old; nobody is rushing his career…A natural athlete with good reflexes. He very well could be ‘The next.”

I totally agree. Wilder is a special talent and with a little more time to develop his already expect skills, he’ll be unbeatable and ready to take over for the Klitschko brothers to dominate the heavyweight division with an iron fist. Wilder has got the best all around skills in the division in terms of prospects and there’s really no one that can can compared. He’s got that bazooka of a fight hand that’s a game changer. There hasn’t been one fighter yet that’s been able to go the full1 12 rounds against him and I can’t see that changing anytime soon.

At 6’7″ 219, Wilder is a super heavyweight compared to the mostly smaller guys that permeate the division. Wilder has the height, reach and the KO power to go a long ways in the division provided that he gets a little more time to properly develop his skills before he starts to take on the big names in the sport. He can’t be rushed into anything.

In his last fight, Wilder looked sensational in stopping Marlon Hayes in the 4th round on February 25th. Wilder chopped down a very good fighter that normally doesn’t get knocked out. That fight was one of the longer ones that Wilder has been in with due to his tendency to KO everybody so early.
