Back in the day Don Wilson used to show up to Roufus fights and heckle him, saying Roufus would never beat him. In 2000 Wilsons trainer Brooks Mason asked Ricks brother Duke if they could get some amateur fighters from their gym on a card in Florida Wilson was going to fight in, to which Duke asked why not have Rick fight Don? Brooks said Rick was too big for Don, and when Duke replied Rick is under 200 lbs right now, Brooks said "I am friends with Donnnie Wilson and I wouldn't put him in there with Rick Roufus". I think everyone agrees 2000 Roufus destroys 2000 Wilson. What about prime vs prime? Don Wilson is actually an inch taller but I think Roufus legit boxing and athleticism would give Don too many problems to handle. Both have lost to Piotrowski, but Roufus lost via decision then beat him via KO in the rematch. Both have wins over Mo Smith. Roufus basically beat Kaman twice, who was a force in his day. Roufus also beat Ernesto Hoost for possibly his best win, whereas Wilsons top win may be Branko Cikatic, though some may say Denis Alexio. Wilson drew with Jean Yves Thireault, Roufus beat him. Another consideration is that though Roufus record may look worse, he consistently fought world class fighters throughout his career and in K-1, something that didnt exist in dons heyday.
