    He literally loses every round, ... and then he knocks you the fuck out. I rewatched the Ortiz fight and ist crazy … he was calm, sticked to the plan and BOOM.

    Thats one of the reasons why I would favour Wilder vs pretty much any HW past/ present/ future.

    Which is funny because he was fucking shook in the Tarver rematch, never seen anyone that scared since Tyson's early opponents.

    Favor the guy that "literally loses every round" in today's weak division against any HW past/present/future?

    Okay... LOL

    Ali and Mayweather seemed way more confident in their abilities than Wilder.

    hell no, he's confident like guys are who've never been in a real fight, as I've said and keep saying, he's an amateur, not even a well taught amateur but today, you can get any big guy and make a splash in the division.

    I think he was a bit nervous against Fury. He definitely lost confidence a little bit when Fury got up. Not badly enough to completely fall apart, but he did go into a shell after that.

    Luckily for him, Fury isn't much of a puncher, so he didn't get punished the way that some other fighters have been punished after somebody has eaten their best shot and gotten up.

    Ali looked like a bitch there.

    This is what a man looks like.

    How am I suppose to measure someone's confidence?

    Evander's ring entrances were confidence personified.

    Blocking 1 of 6 punches?
    High Guard Clottey.
    You could argue he won this fight tho.
    But that was his style. High guard covering his face and then gets into an accidental head clash.

    How is having a knockout punch late in the fight the same as having confidence?
    Wilder has one way to win and if that doesn't work like against Fury he's benefited from incompetent judges.

    Wilder is no Mike Tyson, until he lost I don't think he ever thought he could lose.
    Or Mayweather, confidence wise he's on another level.

    Clottey was a savage. His brother was a scrapper too although not as talented.

    I’d say fury is more confident, standing in front of wilder, chin out, hands behind his back

    He's confident for sure. He certainly has a chin and right now during all of his rounds he always found the knockout. Might be a little overconfident but can understand why he doesnt worry.
