I say Sanders KO by 2 or 3
Could go either way. Anyone denying that is a sick ****.
Could go (Nate Tubbs) either way (Nate Tubbs). Anyone denying (Nate Tubbs) that is (Nate Tubbs) a sick (Nate Tubbs).
I doubt Wilder could’ve lasted as Tyson’s chief sparring partner.
(LOL) Neither could Nate Tubbs.
That's why Mike Tyson had a lot of chief sparring partners. Gary Lightbourne. Jesse Ferguson. Ken Lakusta. The list goes on. Being chief sparring partner didn't make them especially good.
If sanders is in shape then I think he can take this. But wilders power can produce a knockout at any time
Do you think they were sparring with Tyson for almost a decade? Do you think the sparring paycheck may be part of why Tubbs' record in pro fights is limited?
Sanders has far more proven power than Wilder. He did come in awful condition in some of his fights so that would definitely be a factor.
Wilder has never thought anyone near to as dangerous as him though, while he has for Wilder
Is Wilder your uncle or something
This is the sort of dream match Wilder should be seeing. Something competitive and one that could easily go either way with both at their best. Both have explosive power and Sanders was a pretty sharp shooter at his best. He also has the best win of the two fighters by far.
Whoever gets their big shot in first is likely here. Sanders could start fast. It would be a nice little slugfest in which i'd minorly favor Sanders based on early aggression.
Wilder is better then Sanders was.
He’s possibly more durable and has more power. But I think sanders had better boxing skill and faster hands
Wilders quick with his right hand. Yes Sanders had fast hands and was a better boxer, but he could be hit, and I dont see anyone standing up to Wilders power that he can hit clean. He punches very hard.
Wilder has knocked out every man he faced for 12 years - except the current 6'9" 270 pound World Champion, who he had down twice.
Watch these fights from beginning to end (if you have HOURS to kill) and let me know if you think Corrie Sanders hit harder than Wilder. (Note: None of them are exactly the Ring heavyweight champion. Most of them didn't even finish their careers with more wins than losses.)
There are more. But try to get thru these, first.
Then watch this one with Nate Tubbs, who beat TWO men his whole career who finished with winning records ... one was the "great" West Turner and the other was Corrie Sanders. (LOL)
I get that Corrie had one big win. But c'mon.
