Default Kelvin Prices chances against Wilder...

Now lets get one thing straight, even though this is a HUGE step up in competition for Wilder, Kelvin Price is nothing special. I like Prices chances against Wilder, but i'm not sure if he's the guy to expose the "glass jawed bomber". What do you guys think?

I think Wilder will be getting off first with his jab while Kelvin Price does his Roy Jones shit because he's from Pensacola. and then a KO win for Wilder

Wilder SHOULD play with Price for a bunch of rounds, to get in some badly-needed work & experience. However, since this is his first time on TV, I expect he will just (carefully) go for the kill early. He won't just bomb away, because Wilder is very smart and never moves in foolishly, so it will take a few rounds, but there's no way Price is going to mount any kind of attack.

Price can really move, so he'll likely survive the first round. - But Price holds his left hand really low, which just SCREAMS "hit me with an overhand right." Wilder's only possibly weakness is on the inside, but Price is not an inside fighter, so this should be just another walk in the park for Deontay.

Expect to see a lot of Wilder's newly-refined jab, setting up straight rights for a little while, then a switch to the OH right and Price's head flying into the lap of some hot babe in the third row.

2nd or 3rd round KO.

- And we still won't know anything about Wilder's defense nor how he will react to future adversity.

Mitchell moves like a punching bag on 2 legs, Wilder moves like a gazelle.

But sure, every fighter should be cautious, strong chin or not. One of Wilder's strengths is that he IS cautious, even when fighting bums. I've watched all of his YouTube fights carefully, and he never once moved in for the kill until the perfect time. He is amazingly patient, considering his offensive capabilities.

Also, besides having phenomenal foot speed, Wilder really knows how to pull his head back to avoid a punch. Easily as good as Wlad or Ali. Combine that with his 84" reach, and Price has little-to-no chance of landing anything meaningful.

Deontay fought on tv before. He has fought on FoxSports headlining for a long time.

Hopefully Kelvin does it.

not only does wilder "move like a gazelle" he also has the legs of a gazelle, i.e little matchstick legs that will snap as soon as he gets hit

I hope so as well, better sooner than later.. If Wilder wins but has a rough time he'll probably go back to fighting cabdrivers again for 25 more fights.

Price did beat Tor Hamer but Deontay should win KO.
