@Certain Posters. Stop hating on Wilder. He's not 'the same type' . Stop it already
What's up with all this Wilder bashing?
He got a lethal right hand and he is a work in progress. He's only 27 years old, which is the WW equalivant of 22-23. He will step up in 2013.
Right now all we saying is he got a monster right hand and loads of potential. This current heavyweight era is full of weak chin fighters (even the champ is weak chin), all you really need is 'solid' boxing skills and a monster right hand. This isn't the 140 division or the 168 or the 154. The HW division IS NOT DEEP. Wilder have a serious shot.
I am beginning to suspect a lot of the hate against Wilder come from the same people who dislike Broner/Floyd etc... but the thing is he's not like them in terms of personality.
1- He never once brag about anything like he's gonna KO Wlad right now or he's the best etc etc.
2- He have a accent that is hard to understand at times, but he's not 'ghetto trash' and he doesn't act that way.
3- He have shown no disrespect to anyone and is overall a likable non ****y guy.
So stop the hate, at least wait till he gives you a reason to hate on him.
I hope it's not true, but I think some of the hate comes from certain issues with the way he looks.
