    You are right. English is not my first language so I mistaken Power to be the same as Force.

    Wilder likely could be a cruiser and heavyweight title holder at the same time. Unless losing a little more weight drained him, he would have an unfair amount of power at cruiser. Julian Jackson kinda shit.

    Considering that it obviously isn't affecting his power, being as light as he can be maximizes his athletic advantage--if he was bigger, and slower, his lack of boxing skills would be even more of a problem.

    It doesn't affect his power but let's see, I feel like with such a skinny frame, a really strong guy like Joshua would be able have a strategy which could negate wilder

    He is basically like Lebron James now in terms of weight and height.

    Wilder may be light and fast, but he swings wide, and that takes its time.

    That is his current listed weight, but he has been listed at 220 lbs before. And even those are often exaggerated

    He isnt more skilled than most of the HWs so the speed/power combo is an equalizer. Him weighing more wouldnt help with anything.

    Lebron was 240 lbs coming out of high school. He was built like a man as a high schooler.

    I agree, I think it would hurt him, he would be slower and his cardio would suffer and those are two of his bigger advantages at HW besides his power of course.

    Power is also defined as the rate of transfer of energy. It's unit is watt and its equal to a joule of work done in one second. 1 horsepower equals 746 watts.

    Want to take nerdyness to the next level: sherbros should unite and calculate Wilder's horsepower.

    I think that is exactly how Joshua plans to fight him. Get in his face and use his strength to rough him up and push him around.
