We know thats the case man, there is actually VIDEO evidence to support this fact. We also have a picture of Wilder laying on his ass after getting dropped by Harold sconiers of all people

I don't know what people see in Wilder, he's stiff as a board, completely awkward with terrible defense and he has a proven glass jaw. Power isn't everything, especially when you're knocking out complete stiffs.

I sort of doubt he started in 2006.

According to Wikipedia, Tyson Fury was named after, yes, Mike Tyson and came from a "family with a long history in bare-knuckle boxing".

The same people on here telling us Seth Mitchell was a Legit fighter are the SAME people backing Wilder now.

We all know how that turned out.

Would you believe those same people are supporting Mitchell again in the rematch against Banks?

I was (still am really) a fan of Mitchell because he was a fun fighter to watch and looked to be stepping it up before his loss. I also liked his attitude outside the ring. Never thought he was the next big thing, and his stylistic flaws were very apparent (as are Jonty's right now) but he brought that aggression and raw power, and yes a rather shaky jaw, that gave that extra tension to his fights.

I'd be a fan of Wilder's too if he dropped the arrogant attitude and started fighting and beating guys more on his level.

What's wrong with supporting someone?

Seth has a loss, big deal. Those can sometimes be avenged, you know? And if they aren't, what, we should throw them under the bus?
