    I cant remember any if so. In any combat sport

    he took an ass whooping but has completely lost it since

    >blames his costume weight
    >blames Breland for saving his life and calls him disloyal
    >fires Breland
    >says Bayliss was working against him
    >trashing WBC now who has protected his overrated ass for years
    >says Breland spiked his water
    >says Fury had egg weights in his gloves
    >waits until contract for a Fury rematch is expired before releasing vid and wanting a rematch
    >admits he turned down Joshua when he said hes been ducking him the whole time

    just a complete muppet on every level. Fury gave this man PTSD and possibly CTE. Worse shape than Wlad was

    Know it isn't boxing but first thought that came into my head when I read the title.

    Conor McGregor never boxed again after his shocking & unforeseeable defeat at the hands of the unproven Floyd Mayweather.

    That was something different - a lunatic acting on impulses right in the moment.

    But Wilder had time to reflect upon his loss, yet his self-denial has been going on TILL THIS DAY!

    Zab Judah after the Tszyu KO

    It took him a while but he turned his career around and won world titles had successful defenses in both 140 and 147, he even had a lengthy career, he gave Floyd problems and surprisingly did well despite losing to Garcia.

    George Foreman had a very similar meltdown. After he got KTFO by Ali, he claimed that he was poisoned, he got distracted by a friend cheering for Ali, that the rope was too loose, etc.

    Then he went on to do stupid one V five exhibition bouts against bums to prove that he was still the KO king and could not knock some of them out while getting mocked by Ali.

    Then he retired and found God

    Idoubt Wilder will find peace in God like Foreman did lol

    The younger version of Foreman is probably the gold standard in taking losses badly.

    I think Wilder comes in second.

    Before he ended up knocking out the Pacman, JMM literally wrote a book which title was "I beat you, Manny Pacquiao".

    That's quite some serious bitterness.

    -Foreman had many of the same excuses that Wilder has had . Even blamed black voodoo magic. Like others have mentioned claimed his food was poisoned by locals, claimed his water bottle was spiked, blamed crowd, and blamed the ring too
    Litterally almost no difference but I bet all yall still cook on Foreman grills while crying about Wilder.
    -BJ Penn going to court and having his mom testify for him after GSP proved to be the far superior fighter was almost as ridiculous as it gets IMO. Somebody mentioned that in 1 of the 30 other threads about this same exact topic....
    I actually think the amount of new non original threads about this same exact topic is more ridiculous than Wilder's excuses at this point.

    Lol Foreman had his redemption arc, Wilder is still in his delusional arc. You are comparing rotten grape to a fine glass of wine.

    Cooking with a Foreman grill feels good because he gave full credits to Ali after he returned to the ring. Right now anything associated with Wilder is just toxic. Only time will tell.

    Cooking with a Foreman grill does feel good, doesn't it?

    What about Turkey Basters? How does DLHs blueprint takeaway from his Mayweather experience make us feel about Turkey basters?

    Foreman like Ali and Frazier & Holmes and even Shavers are Icons of professional boxing in 70 ies.
    Foreman like Ali and Frazier is Olympic Gold medalist.
    Foreman had fought 2 well known in europe boxing icons : Ali and Frazier.

    Wilder had fought only 1 known in europe boxer: Tyson Fury.
    He is even less well known than Hunter because this at least had Povetkin and Usyk in the ring, both of them are also Olympic Gold medalists and World Championship Gold medalists.
    It does matters unlike U.S inhabitants assumption that U.S and Wilder's fanbase is all world.

    So give him years and years just like Big George.

    I dont believe there is any parallel between Ali and the success of George's infomercial product. Really stretching that one.
