This is true. In the past, balance has been Wilder's one known weakness. (on a few rare occasions.) He's been known to stumble when moving backwards. - In the "embarrassing for several reasons" Nichols fight, for instance.

However:

1: Wilder has been working very hard on his footwork, and that is obvious in his last 3-4 fights.

2: Wilder has put on over 10 lbs in the last year, and it looks like some of it is in his legs.

3: A strong, aggressive fighter may still be able to cause Wilder to move back quickly and stumble, but Price is far from such a pressure fighter. He likes to potshot from the outside, and he doesn't have great power at all.
