I strongly favor Wilder to win this contest but I would like to discuss what all of you think are keys to victory for Breazeale, possible pathways, or why you may favor him for victory. Breazeale is 20-1 with 18 knockouts and is a legitimate power puncher. He’s probably not as hard of a hitter as Wilder is, and doesn’t have the kind of intimidating aura that Wilder possesses, but there is little doubt that Breazeale has the power to get the job done. This post will quickly focus upon his jab though. Use The Jab. Breazeale enters the contest with a 2 inch reach advantage and in order to prevail he needs to consistently employ the jab. This is crucial if you watch contests in which Wilder’s (supposedly inferior) opponents have employed it in the past to good effect. We saw this for example in the first 4 rounds from Gerald Washington. Washington was an overmatched opponent but utilized a single repetitive jab (and not much else) to keep Wilder at bay. Wilder is used to a height and reach advantage entering the ring. Wilder, though, is quicker and has the faster hands and feet. He does however struggle to employ a steady jab himself. Breazeale has shown a relatively strong jab throughout his career thus far. This will be one of the keys to a possible victory for him. What additional keys are there for him to win in your eyes?
