    He would be much much better fighter.. All he wants to do is throw power shot.. this is not a street fight..

    I wish he has a Lennox style jab.. wow.. can you imagine?

    ....if only somebody taught Wilder humility and graciousness in defeat! It certainly would have come in handy.

    He doesn't appear to have the grey matter to absorb information.

    He has the skills, he abandons them in adversity. The biggest problem was that he came in at 238 lbs and that destroyed him from round 2 onwards. He shot his load in round one. He got a second wind in round 4 but after that he had nothing left

    At this stage, Wilder is too set in his ways to change his style up or learn anything new.

    You can write a series of short stories entitled:

    "If someone could teach Deontay to ......"

    Just fill in the blank and get down to it!

    Wilder jabbed pretty good in the first 2 rounds. Its not lack of knowledge, its lack of discipline

    After he got knocked down in the third round Wilder lost all focus and abandoned whatever game plan he had. When adversity strikes, it is very hard for any fighter to stick to a plan that is different than what he has been doing successfully his own career.

    Maybe they can get the same teacher to throw in lessons on defense, footwork, endurance and sportsmanship.

    The jab is an incredibly complicated punch to master. So, no, not gonna happen.
