Wilder’s power ranks up there with the best of the last 30 years. His record suggests he is probably in the top 10. He can knock out an opponent with one punch and with either hand, even in the later rounds. That kind of one-shot power reminds me of Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and even George Foreman, who is one of the hardest-hitting heavyweights of all time.
