    He knows how to use his height against smaller men who also have slow footwork

    He has ridiuclous explosive power

    He can cover probably the largest amount of range in the shortest amount of time of anybody currently in boxing (with power). Fury's jab and lead hook are the only rangier punches.

    Even with massive anxiety and pure terror he was still willing to take his beating

    His body punches when he throws them correctly look pretty damn effective, he hasn't got the legs or composure to keep up that good work though. He hurt Fury with his jab to the body early in their first fight, don't think he noticed though.

    His chin isn't that bad, it's pretty good. Finding time and space to recover against big heavyweights who he can't physically grapple is a major weakness. Them legs take time to recover. Ortiz couldn't finish him because he isn't physically invasive or strong.

    He never gets out of shape

    If he can survive 12 rounds against Fury in the rematch or even put up a fight then fair play to him.

    Got up 4 time’s while concussed and gassed out is quitting? Give it a rest. At least AJ had the balls and belief in himself to face top opponents consistently unlike Wilder who avoided the Klitschko brothers, AJ and Povetkin like plague. Only fought Fury because he isn’t a puncher and even then the first fight was a cherrypick.

    I think he's a really good guy who is unlikable because of his bronze bomber persona

    He likes to give the necks of prostitutes a helping hand

    He takes the time to teach boxing to and spar with the mentally ill

    He was very polite and civil with Gareth A Davies

    He respects legends of the sport like Mike Tyson and their accomplishments

    An absolute overachiever and good for him. I think he's similar to Conor McGregor with the visualisation approach. Not to be conflated with Tunde Ajayi SEE IT BELIEVE IT BECOME IT

    LOL. He does have a powerful “wind up and throw from left field” right hand, but other than that his whole skillset and image has been thoroughly dismantled by fury

    He has a lot of talent. Note that talent and skill aren't the same thing.

    He took up boxing late and won a bronze medal at the Olympics, and managed to win a world title and defend it 10 times (through very careful matchmaking, but still). Imagine what he could have done if he had been boxing since he was a kid.

    I'm a big Wilder fan, believe that today he is the #3 HW, but what the second Fury fight showed was that the idea of Wilder's unprecented right hand power was marketing and we all should have known better. A huge right hand sure, but I believe you can dig up plenty who throw/threw one single punch with more force.

    It was really the speed with the power and the athleticism to keep it up in the later rounds. An underrated jab too and a gameplan that largely suits him.

    Tohave a chance to beat Fury he needs to show more accuracy and timing. As a puncher he's not going to dance and weave much more even if he could. He's going to have to set his feet and throw and have the accuracy to make it count.

    Maybe less than you think, though. By all accounts, his problems are that he is in love with his power and does not listen when other try to teach him. Time does not necessarily solve those problems.

    I like that he speaks his mind although that does get him some criticism.

    Gangly, telegraphs his right hand has power. Decent left hand but horrible jab for a man his size. Dodgy chin?Maybe but tough. Take away the right hand he's lost though, he needs to show versitility, too used to dropping low tier journeyman
