Wilder thought AJ defeat to Ruiz was bad, well Wilder has now completely embarrassed himself by saying he lost because his ring walk outfit was too heavy.
Apparently it weighed about 18kg. If a heavyweight boxer is struggling after essentially carrying an 18kg weight for however many yards then he probably shouldn’t be involved in heavyweight boxing.
Still though - why would you go and carry nearly 3 and half stone around on your way into a heavyweight championship.
It's clearly not the whole reason, but you have to say Fury had a far more relaxing build up to that fight.
Can't say I've ever been a massive fan of Fury but there must be something about him to beat both Klitshko (admittedly at the end of his career) and this Wilder.
I don't think the Heavyweight division is particularly strong at the minute - go back 20 years and there was loads of proper nuts bas**rds in it. Hope the two British fellas manage to get it on and unify the belts.
