Default Wilder only weighed 9 lbs more than a prime Joe Louis

and he is 6 ft 7.

Louis is too small? Once again - being in shape doesn't mean you are small.

Wilder certainly looked bigger than fat boy Ortiz. hell, even Toney clocked in at 255 at one point for all the size kings.

Louis koed dudes as big as Wilder or even bigger, only weighs 9 lbs less (in his prime) yet he is too small for todays HW's lol

He did say that he got sick during this training camp so that had something to do with him being at such a low (for him) weight.

The fight last night is just another piece of evidence that classic heavies can compete with the 240 lb guys. I've been saying this since I started following boxing about 5 years ago.

Wilder has three advantages, his height, long legs and long reach.

Let's see if Wilder was able to pull that off if he had the dimensions of Louis.

You guys think Wilder will beat Joshua when they finally fight? If Joshua wins his next fight and then can get a fight with Wilder, it will decide the undisputed champion.

That's a nine pound hammer more! Next fight, at 223, he will weigh a pair of nine pound hammers more.

Wilder's a freak, there's only a few inches between his shoulder blades and his collar bones almost run parallel!

Hard to think of a heavyweight in history who was anything like him
Ironically he's a very similar in stature to his trainer, Mark Breland

Making history for sure

I agree that it does make a big difference when talking about his weight.

And Louis wasnt a freak? The guy was explosive as *****.

Have you seen him punch? He makes Wilder look like a child just learning to box.

200lbs of perfectly timed and accurate power punching thrown with immaculate technique will knock any body out. Idc how big you are, how tall or how long your reach is.
