Scary. Cant emphasis enough what these guys go through for our entertainment.
Lennox had a great jaw. Fury not so much. So he takes it and proceeds to give Wilder an almighty Lummoxing.
Likely not, but I dont think he would be getting hit with that shot very often.
L beats Wilder 8 out of 10 imo.
Too powerful, too good.
No, Lennox' chin was far from great. Rahman KTFO'ed him with a single punch, and Lennox was the only top 100 fighter whom he knocked out with a single shot to the head.
Rahman needed millions of power punches to stop Sanders, Meehan and even Zuri Lawrence (whom Calvin Brock laid out cold for 10 minutes with a single left hook)
Rahman also couldn't stop:
- ancient Trevor Berbick (prime version was demolished by Tyson and Mercado)
- ancient Jesse Ferguson (prime version was demolished by Bowe)
- ancient Alfred Cole (much younger and better version was demolished by Corrie Sanders)
Rahman also coldn't stop guys who never were known for having good chin, like Obed Sullliav, Monte Barrett, Taurus Sykes or Oleg Maskaev
Hasim's power was good but it wasn't special, yet he KTFOed Lewis with a single punch, so Wilder would most likely KO Lennox if he landed that shot.
However, I think Lennox would be very focused coming into the fight with Deontay, knowing Wilder can KO him with a single punch, and won't give Wilder an opportunity to land that right hand on him. Prime (Steward- trainded) version of Lewis had much better skills and balance comparing to Wilder, and focused version of Lennox wasn't easy to hit (except a fight with Ray Mercer who was stylistic nightmare for him). So, I don't see Lennox letting Wilder to land that right hand. But yeah, if Wilder somehow lands it the fight would be over
Got iced twice.
By one punch.
Yes. Wilder definitely hits very hard.
The punch is clearly overrated. It connected too short with no snap and too high.
Not quite as big as what rahman landed on him in 01. I think Lewis eats that shot for breakfast.
the same punch sent luiz ortiz to the shadow realm
Can’t believe I’ve wasted 10 minutes of my life reading the absolute drivel in this thread, 90% of it posted by one account.
Wilder hits much harder than Rahman though
It's the heavyweight division and not every boxer is 100 percent going into the fight and may be coming in with injuries like Fury was.
I think it's possible he could get hurt and knocked out on an off night and a bad day at the office.
I think Lewis would stop Wilder and break him down systematically and might not get caught with that punch clean.
Shocking head movement for an elite level fighter like Fury
Made of the finest porcelain.
