Official highlights

    Wilder did not accelerate bc he was not camfortable with opponent’s
    heights, also I think it was a fight plan to bring the fight in later
    rounds. Washington is too good while he is fresh. Fighting AJ it will be
    another plan. Besides, AJ might be scared and uncomfortable with tall
    opposition. Washington was too brave and he paid for that.

  • Steve Ford

    Wilder looks unimpressive. Lack of technique being carried by offensive explosion. Boxing in the HW division is weak but I want to see him fight an actual proven top fighter.

  • No10Count

    This fight showed Wilder is on par with Parker.
    Washington seemed to gas in the 4th.
    He also can’t throw a right correctly. But we knew he was inexperienced.

    I once thought Wilder would beat Fury (who I dont like BTW)
    but this changed my mind on that. Fury could Klitchko Wilder all night. And I still see Joshua beating him. (as long as Joshua overcome Klitchko)

    • logicalfellac

      Joshua is the best HW no doubt. Wilder is just like his name, even after all those fights: Wild.

  • Norris Lurker

    Unimpressive fight on Wilders behalf. Its a pity Washington is still inexperienced, he should look to Alvarez as to how to throw a left to the body. He also should learn to throw combination punches not just one two’s. With better coaching and more fitness he could become a legitimate contender. He totally exposed Wilder up until the last minute. I can’t see Wilder beating any body opposite and above him in the various rankings. He will turn into a Cornish pastie if he ever gets to England.

    Wilder may have looked unimpressive but he still had one shot, took it perfectly and finished the fight.

  • Olivier Veillette

    After seeing this fight, there is no doubt in my mind, the best HW in the world right now is Joshua, by a mile.

    Very entertaining fight coming from two giants. It was all Gerald’s fight until he was connected. It is bad because he is a pretty good boxer, with nice techniques but with limited power. Deontay is just effective because his extraordinary power but in term of techniques he still requires a lot of learning. Currently, if he goes for Joshua he will be an easy prey.
