Exactly. Wilder is gonna make Michael Grant look like George Chuvalo. I remember when Grant was getting hyped by HBO and all the boxing mags, I said, "I think his chin is questionable."

Of course, in this early-internet era, those few I talked to couldn't accept this reality And then, after the Golota fight, I said, "see, this guy has a glass jaw." Still they denied it. Well, after the Lewis fight, they gave me my props.

This is an even more egregious case. Wilder won't even make it to the Golota level before his china chin gets exposed.

Honestly I too think they are not even going to be able to get Wilder to a title shot. I think he gets sparked well before that. To question that Wilder doesn't have a Glass Jaw is pure lunacy. All the tell-tale signs are already there. And the ChinCheckers know it.

The Chinchecking tradition will NEVER die at ESB.

Glass jaws EXIST in boxing. Always have, always will. And as long as there are fighters with shaky chins, the Chincheckers will be there!!!!!

I don't think he'll sniff a title shot either and his management obviously feels the same way. If they didn't he wouldn't still be fighting at Dirty ****'s Fight Night at the local strip joint after 17 pro bouts. No, I think his likely career trajectory is about ten more fights on the flea market circuit and then his management will decide that the risk is worth the reward and throw him in a FNF with a live body where he will be exposed for the China Chinned Hype Job that he is.

Really, all the signs are here and I can't for the life of me figure out how these fools really can't see the writing on the wall. He got dropped hard by feather fisted Sconiers who I think had a KO percentage hovering in the twenties or low thirties, he's still fighting on the Deep South bum-of-the-month tour after 17 pro bouts, and he's avoiding anybody with a decent KO ratio. What a ****ing disgrace.

I think the reason why Wilder may fail at higher levels has less to do with any issues relating to punch resistance, and more to do with other flaws, such as a one dimensional approach that seems entirely reliant upon landing the right hand. As he steps up in class, he's going to have to find a way to vary his attack, or else opponents are going to have increasing success should they survive an initial assault.

That being said, if his technique does improve, then he could make some noise, regardless of how "glass-jawed" people think he might be. There are multiple cases of fighters who became really good- and sometimes even great- after suffering early ko'ds (or even kd's) at the hands of lesser fighters.

So, I'm not inclined to write him off completely just yet.

He beat Damon Reed, who has only lost to C plus level fighters. So if that says anything about Wilder, I guess time will tell. But almost all the fighters Reed lost to, went on to become title holders, regional, continental or world.

I see Wilder is fighting Alexsander next....should be an easy KO for Wilder. Would love to see him vs David Rodriquez after that, a step up for both.

That's an intriguing fight. If Rodriguez has any skills or pop at all in his fists, I suspect Wilder's shaky whiskers will get exposed.

Zakman- ur insane Wilder is tall but a 'small heavy'- he kid needs to develop physically and fill out let alone hone his boxing skills. Yes he attained a Bronze, however w/ a miniscule amatuer pedigree. This has nothing to do w/ a weak chin, and his chin has yet to be tested.

I really despise the 'chin checking' BS everyone knows punch resistance is part of boxing. I applaud the mods that have been courageous enough so many of the chin checkers and hope ur next on their list, Zakman. You add little insight to this forum, and to quote Billy Madison, we are all dumber for having read your propoganda because you are merely an attention ***** w/ 40 thousand BS posts.

The guy was nearly sparked out by one of those Deep South flea market fighters he's been feasting on and people think this guy is actually going to make an impact on the HW division?

I've had doubts about his Mandible for awhile and the fact that his management is still matching him with feather-fisted bums this far into his career tells me that they have doubts about it, as well. They know that Chin is Grade AAA china and if he ever steps up to a halfway legitimate fighter, which is doubtful, that it will be exposed brutally.

Yup. The signs are obvious. Three years into a pro career and STILL fighting stiffs, one of whom nearly had this guy out of there. A guy with a 25 percent KO rate, no less.

Wilder's chin isn't just chin. Like you say, it's Grade AAA china - and his handlers KNOW it!

Wlad was KO'd by a semi pro golfer. We all know how he ended up. Take Wilder's fight with Sconiers with a grain of salt.

Rodriquez is probably the heaviest handed hitter in the division, but his mgmt can't get anyone in the top 50 to accept a fight with him.


I've heard rumors that Top Rank and Golden Boy are looking at him. If this is true, Wilder could very well be one of his first KO victims in the near future. He fights against the notorious TBA on Oct 15th. A KO there should move him into the top 60. Hopefully he'll fight again this year and get into the top 50 and get a deal with golden boy.
