Maybe in Alabama...but rest of America let alone the world wont even notice if he retired tomorrow.Wilder says when he retires he will be known as the best ever in the heavyweight division, if not the whole of boxing.
He's been expertly managed, took zero risks apart from Fury, and even Fury isn't what he was. After seeing the Pianeta fight how big a "risk" did it seem like really. He's still literally never fought a puncher.Gotta give it to Wilder though. A few years ago he was the least expected HW to be the last man standing out of the top 3, maybe even top 5 including Whyte and Ortiz. It now happens he could very well end up the last man standing. It is amazing what being unorthodox, a bit wild, being fed cans for 30 fights, and having incredible power can do for a career at HW.
