    Beautiful jab from Wilder, could be light outs for the man from Crimea if he faces him next

    I am glad that after 17 years in the sport, Windmill is working on the Jab!

    He might beat Nichols someday if they ever grant him a rematch

    Wilder always had a good jab, hit Fury with a lot of counter jabs in their first fight.

    Wilder has always had a good jab, his issue is maintaining the discipline to use it instead of falling back on his right hand by default. If Wilder fought Fury a 4th time with a consistent jab, I'd actually favour Wilder to win.

    Every time he threw it in their last fight, he immediately threw a right hand. He should have come in lighter, not heavier.

    I wonder if a loss earlier in his career would've changed his trajectory, may of took time to get the fundamentals right had he fought the more skilled fighters in the division after Stiverne 1. He showed his jab in that fight but never used it of that nature again. I don't think Jay Deas did enough to develop skill and let Wilder dictate his own training

    Probably but most of his fights were against subpar competition. He could get by with only his powerful right against that quality of opponent he faced.

    I've been watching boxing religiously for several decades. Wilder is the most skilled fighter from Tuscaloosa I've ever seen.

    Should have done this years ago. It's probably too late now. If Wilder had had a Larry Holmes type jab he could have been great on just two punches.

    Agree with the competition, a real shame that Wilder V Povetkin fell through, would've been a great scrap

    Should be noted it didn't "fall through." Wilder claimed PEDs use based on the fact that trace elements of a recently banned substance were found in Povetkin's system. Povetkin reasonably claimed that the trace amounts were from when the substance was legal. The WBC agreed, but Wilder would not go through with the fight. Povetkin sued and won millions.

    It was a blatant and cowardly duck.

    he doesnt turn it over nor does he put any shoulder into it. the only thing that jab is good for is to blind the opponent to the right hand behind it in a 1-2.

    The jab is what you start with in boxing, not how you exit your career, especially when you're tall and the jab is what you must dominate with. But working on pads is always better than what you do in the ring. He was never that fast with and he's throwing it with his hand a bit down, which in most cases he can allow being usually the taller, but in his case the hand is too low and his body moves the way it's obvious he's throwing a jab. His right hand is the great tool he has, the video is just another proof.

    I think so as well. Povetkin was a monster back then, Wilder was and is still a dosser.
