Deontay Wilder rated fourth most dangerous fighter in the world

wilder52By Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten heavyweight knockout artist Deontay Wilder (26-0, 26 KO’s) has been given a rating of the fourth most dangerous fighter in the world by the prestigious site. Wilder is ranked below only #1 Vitaki Klitschko, #2 Floyd Mayweather Jr and #3 Wladimir Klitschko. I must say I totally with this ranking.

I don’t agree with a numbers on the list because some of them can’t punch their way out of a wet paper back, while others are not even relevant fighters. However, I do agree 100% with the placement of the hard hitting Wilder in the top 4 because he clearly is the biggest puncher in the heavyweight division right now.

Wilder’s 26 knockouts in 26 fights shows this. Believe me, you don’t knock out all 26 of your opponents within the first four rounds unless you’ve got unbelievable power. Wilder’s punches are just unbelievably hard and even though he doesn’t have a constant jab and doesn’t use his left hand nearly as much as he should, it doesn’t matter because his right hand power is so damn good. I don’t know of anyone in the heavyweight division that can handle Wilder’s right hand. If he hits you with it you’re going to get knocked out no matter how good your chin is.

Here is the full list of the most dangerous fighters in the world:

1. Vitali Klitschko
2. Floyd Mayweather Jr
3. Wladimir Klitschko
4. Deontay Wilder
5. Saul Alvarez
6. Nathan Cleverly
7. Nonito Donaire
8. Kell Brook
9. Brandon Rios
10. Adrien Broner
11. David Haye
12. Andre Ward
13. Gennady Golovkin
14. Aleander Povetkin
15. Leo Santa Cruz
16. Mikkel Kessler
17. Danny Garcia
18. Kelly Pavlik
19. Lucian Bute
20. Amir Khan
21. Yuriorkis Gamboa
22. Alfredo Angulo
23. Dmitriy Pirog
24. Sergio Martinez
25. Tim Bradley
26. Juan Manuel Marquez
27. Mikey Garcia
28. Robert Guerrero
29. James Kirkland
30. Carl Froch

Wilder’s next fight is coming up in the next two to three months. We should hear something soon about who it’ll be. He wants to make a run for one of the world titles in 2013, so you can expect a busy year for this young talent. He won’t be wasting time fighting 40-year-olds like some heavyweights are doing.
