Wilder’s power is overrated

By Dominic Sauboorah: After watching Deontay Wilder’s win over journeyman Matt Greer I was simply embarrassed. This guy is a joke. Case Closed. I give it to him that he did the job but he looked appalling in the process and he threw so many right hands in that fight that didn’t seem to rock Greer that bad despite the fact that he got knocked down 3 times, mainly due to pressure more than anything. God I’d love to see him fight Fury Price Helenius or any of the guys in the top 10, he’d get out boxed and taken out so fast.

He was so wild with his punches it was like something from the school yard. His jab was pretty much none existent, his style is really awkward as he stands SO upright so he looks like a freak of nature and his balance is so bad I could probably nudge him and he’d fall like a plank of wood.

Like I said before I’d respect him if he was just doing his business his way without calling guys out, but he’s calling out the best without even proving himself. He’s knocked out 27 bums and his power really isn’t all that considering he’s fought no one legitimate. If he thinks people will just stand there, who are ranked in the top 10, and just take his shots then he’s going to be in for a rude awakening. Deontay Wilder is a joke, an embarrassment, a disgrace, he’s doing everything wrong with his professional career and this is why he’s not even a recognized prospect yet after nearly 30 fights. That’s pathetic considering the guy’s a proven amateur.

I do hope he gets taken out simply for talking about how he can do this and that when he’s proving it against nothing opponents. Deontay Wilder, the joke of the heavyweight division. The minute he steps into the ring with a top 15 opponent he’ll regret it, I can guarantee you that.
