    Wilder's career will end when he will be brutally KOed by a mediocre puncher. He is already in his mid 30s and once his reflexes will start to go, even the C level opponents he is fighting will start bombing him out.
    Wilder will end up like Joshua soon.
    Even worse, because he will be remembered as Deontay "100 million dollars" Wilder.

    If any butt-hurt Wilder haters need a tissue, I've got some here with me.

    They are extra soft for your female complexions.

    Wilder's power is real. One shot KO, reel.

    Wilder reminded me of Max Baer for a while.

    Now he reminds me more of Bob Fitzsimmons.

    Either way, Wilder is an all-time great heavyweight puncher.

    When he takes his right glove and presses it in the palm of his left glove, so he can push the knuckles of his right hand as deep into the glove as possible, you might as well just walk to your corner and leave the ring.

    He did it again just before he blasted Breazeale. I laughed when he did it. It's becoming his signature move.

    Classic Wilder.

    It feels like if he were cheating. Like the "kill'em all button". I cant answer the question, but his power is not something common, that's for sure. Once in a generation, at most, and being generous.

    Whyte's power is no slouch as well. The left hook he landed on Parker reminded me of Shavers v Holmes. I have no idea how Joe got up from that, especially when you see that very same punch knock other fighters completely unconscious.

    Yeah I was always fascinated when I see Wilder pressing his gloves closer to his knuckles. There is a man confident in his abilities.. trying to get that maximum.power delivery and optimise the connection of his knuckle to his opponents face.

    To this day Ill never know how Parker got up so smooth from that shot whivh landed perfectly as you see Parkers head whip around violent on his neck... gives me shivers watching it back.

    But Whyte is a big solid machine... I kinda expect him to throw with big force... but Wilder has some special power for his frame and size... you just have that constant fear watching him that it could land any moment and its over.

    Yeah, Wilder's dangerous. I'm always on the edge of my seat watching him live, even when it looks like it's all over, since you know he can just pull something out the bag and flatline a fool.

    I don't think his power's a mystery, as I outlined above, but his combination of speed, agility and limb length are kinda rare in the HW division.

    I totally agree that combination of physical attributes is rare... and in Wilders case very lethal.

    Everyone is built so differently from a mechanical point of view that a few inches here... a few millimeters off from there and you get Wilder...

    Plenty of tall tall..rangy people but they just dont throw mechnically with the same force.

    Of course his muscle type etc plays a factor but.like you said... that sweet spot of limb length and speed.

    This very power is Wilder’s best defense. His power puts such fear into his opponents that they never dare to commit to their punches. They never go for the throat because they are too timid to over-extend and get caught with a right hand that can end their life.

    With this power and intimidation Wilder rules the roost. He is the alpha male who isn’t afraid to walk tall and put beta opposition in their proper position. In fights, his testosterone/cortisol ratio skyrockets. When a man is afraid and timid his testosterone/cortisol ratio plummets. He goes into beta mode, he is unsure, indecisive and risk averse. These are the things that will keep him alive but that’s it, he will survive but never triumph. Never against a phenom such as Wilder.
