He has done very well considering he only had 30 odd amateur fights.

The Wilder v Greer fight I was talking about

I've got no doubt about his courage either, I'm sure he's not wanting to fight who he is fighting a whole lot either and wanting to step up but sadly it's not up to him.

To me in straight lines throwing that right he is a super star, any time he started looking to work something off his left he looked all over the place balance wise.

I've seen the Greer fight. But had another look. Greer stayed awkward for a while, ducking low and trying to land his overhand right - about his only weapon. He did get inside a few times but did Wilder no damage.

Probably best summarised as a nothing fight. You certainly wouldn't accuse Wilder of having the clinical precision of a Klitschko. But he had an ordinary opponent in Greer out of there inside 2 rounds, and would have won by whatever method he chose to adopt.

Just an observation. Greer is about the same height and weight as de Mori and Wilder just monstered him.

A very relevant observation.

I asked DeMori on twitter whether he had any idea who King had lined up for him, his reply was:-

"nope, I will train hard and see if it's a mirage or not".
