Re: Why are American HW fans so obsessed with unskilled power punchers?
WHy are non-Americans so obsessed with THINKING that American HW fans so obsessed with unskilled power punchers?
Almost no one here ever thought, or thinks now, that Mitchell could rise to the top. We just applaud his efforts, and the fact that he's done remarkably well (until yesterday) given his circumstances.
Wilder is a different matter. Many pros think he might be the next champ. (depending upon how good his still-unproved defense is.) If you claim he has no skills, then YDKSAB - and never has that initialism been more appropriate.
Despite his abysmal & sometimes literally embarrassing opposition, if you can't see Wilder's potential, you should find another forum. Perhaps a ladies' knitting forum?
So again, what is this fascination with Americans over-hyping their fighters? None do that better than the Brittards. Christ, take Tyson Fury for instance. He's the most over-hyped fighter on the planet right now.
