I want to point out one thing.

The fact that Deontay Wilder won an Olympic Bronze medal is actually somewhat telling. Let's examine how the fights went down:

Defeated Abdelaziz Toulbini (Algeria) 10:4
Defeated Mohamed Arjaoui (Morocco) 10+:10 (tiebreaker criteria)
Lost to Clemente Russo 7:1

He didn't knock anyone out, which means that he won on points obviously. Scoring points in the Olympic / Amateur arena involves a few things, which requires accurate punching.

What we've learned then, is that Deontay Wilder is that 5 years ago, he had enough punching accuracy and timing to beat guys at the Olympic level and to secure a Bronze Medal.

Many times, we look at prospects that are coming up and wrecking people and we look for reasons to criticize them. In many cases, that criticism is warranted and in others, it may not be so accurate.

Take a case like Brandon Rios. This is a guy who for a long time had an undefeated record. Yet his fighting strategy / skill-set was basically, "I'm going to put my head against yours and keep swinging until you fall down".

That whole, come forward / brawling style has clear deficiencies. It's also not the case with Deontay Wilder.

Wilder is landing punches from distance that are both powerful and accurate. We sit here thinking he has only one punch, but landing that right hand takes a precision that you can't ignore.

Mind you, I think Wilder has a long way to go. Yet the idea that he ISN'T the best young American Heavyweight fighter right now is absurd.

Many people point to Andy Ruiz being that guy, but I'm sorry. If you have bitch tits and love handles to the point where you're on the Chris Arreola side of the game, then I'll have to pass unfortunately.
