    This may be the simplest, most accurate statement I've ever read on this forum.

    Very well said.

    You do realize Wilder has ten successful defenses and has floored every man he's ever faced?

    It can’t be Wilder because he 12-0’d Stiverne, a champion himself, to become a champion

    The actual worst champion would be some obscure guy who won a vacant belt that we’re all forgetting

    Nah. Sadam has skills. Cotto was obviously past prime but he still picked him apart easily.

    Those people clearly aren't taking into account the fact that Primo Carnera, Marvin Hart and Jess Willard were Heavyweight champions at some point in time.

    This thread could go for days, with all of the belts out there- Wilder is not the worst. He was an olympian medalist and a world champ, trust me there are far worse out there.

    I specifically watched Primo Carnera and Valuev footage before making this thread lol. I still think they're technically better.
    For the n-th time. Wilder isn't the worst champion. He's the least skilled champ. Like people said - he's very effective and has his achievements. But even the most casual of casuals can tell there is something very wrong with the way he boxes.

    Lol, I don't think Wilder is the worst, he's not even the worst of his era to hold a title. Martin was far worse.

    Though I'd say Wilder was the most protected of the title holders we've had in a long time.

    If you mean the legit history of boxing then you could name any fighter pre-1940's. If you mean in the modern boxing I would say Rocky Marciano, Tyson "I throw arm punches" Fury, and Valuev.
