Good point. Wilder at his heaviest is a monstrous power puncher. Tyson has only ever been knocked down by the heaviest puncher of the 21st century.
True or false: Fury seems to get knocked down a lot for an all-time great
Iíd love perspective here.
True. Could this be due to his height? I know that sounds silly, but being so high up, and also being top heavy.
Also, let's remember Wilder does have all time knockout / knockdown power.
Heís been knocked down at least a couple of other times, by some tomato cans. One was his first American fight.
Sorry, more meant knocked down with a threat of actually being counted out. I think he's just wobbly on his legs. He uses his feet a lot for a heavyweight, and I think the constant movement leaves him open to being knocked down given the power heavyweights have. I also think he backs himself to always get up.
Chin isn't really, for my mind, one of the more important things when considering all-time greatness. Guys like Chuvalo and McCall had fantastic chins but are not all that significant in all-time fight ranks. Heart trumps chin for me, and Fury has a boatload of heart. I'm still not sure how he got up from that Fury knockdown in the first fight.
