Deontay Wilder: The Haters will always hate but I will dominate

wilder23By Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten knockout artist Deontay Wilder (27-0, 27 KO’s) isn’t paying attention to his many critics who are jealous of his accomplishments in boxing. Wilder just says he’s going to keep dominating and let the haters stew on their own vicious hate.

Wilder said on his twitter page “Haters always get mad at stuff. They’ll never achieve in life. Your life sucks; mine is the bomb! I’m loving it. The haters will always hate, but the Bronze Bombers will dominate!”

It’s so true, Deontay. There so many bitter boxing fans about seeing you accomplish with your career that they’ll never be able to do nor their heros in many cases.

Wilder looked really good in stopping Matt Greer in the 2nd round last Saturday night at the Centro de Convenciones, Villahermosa, in Tabasco, Mexico. Wilder experimented a little bit in the 1st round with his jab and left hook, but in the 2nd round he got down to business, unleashing his incredibly powerful right hand to knock Greer down three times in the round before it was stopped.

The only reason Wilde wasn’t able to put Greer down for a good with the first shot was because he didn’t land it flush. It was more of a clubbing right hand that landed on the top of Greer’s head. Greer didn’t look like he felt too good after he got up that shot, and we down quick once Wilder hit him with another solid right hand.

The fight would have been over in the 1st round but Wilder didn’t use his right hand in that round. If he had, it would have been just the second round with him dropping Greer.
It’s a good sign that Wilder is working on developing his jab and left hook because those are weapons that he needs to develop more so that he can add them to his offensive arsenal of punches.

Right now Wilder is still mostly a fight hand puncher, and he can get away with this even at the world level due to how powerful his right hand is. I don’t see a fighter in the heavyweight division that has Wilder’s power, and that’s why he’ll still be an incredibly lethal fighter even if he never learns to develop his jab and left hook.
