From last night. Wilder needs to step it up now.

I quite like Wilder. He is inexperienced but he's with a very knowledgeable coach and I think he is improving, even though we've not seen him tested yet. Beck and Manswell aren't tough opposition but he dismantled them both with ease, which is a good sign. He needs to keep on fighting tougher opposition and hopefully in about two years time, he'll be ready to fight for a title. There's no reason to rush him, I don't think, and I'm sure he'll continue to improve in the gym.

He seems to have really impressive power and a good sign for me is that he is finally looking like a proper heavyweight rather than a scrawny basketball player. He was 217lbs against Beck, which is too light for someone who is 6'7". I hope he weighs in at around 230-235lbs for his next bout, which would be a good weight for him especially if that muscle goes onto his legs.
