In a heavyweight tangle, Deontay Wilder (223 1/2; 25-0 entering; from Alabama) clashed with Kelvin Price (240 pounds, 13-0; age 37; from Florida) in the second scrap on the Showtime production, right before the main event at the LA Sports Arena on Saturday night. The two titans were tentative early. Price landed a sharp right in the second. Price ate a right and went down in the third, and he couldn't beat the count. Wilder rushed him, threw a obscuring jab and landed a loooong right to the chin.

Alfredo Angulo engaged in a back and forth rumble with Jorge Silva at the LA Sports Arena. Both men landed hard, clean shots throughout, and the Mexican's experience spoke as he got a second or third wind around round eight. Angulo punished the kid to the body, and ate vicious hooks in round ten. This was a rock solid scrap. Angulo got the W by scores of 97-93, across the board, and that call drew some boos from the crowd. The 30 year old Angulo went 292-806 228-682 for Silva, age 20.

Paul Malignaggi of Showtime said he thinks Angulo likely needs some more rounds before he tries for a title.

Wilder has nothing but a right hand but if he hits u with it clean your going to sleep I don't care who's in front of him.

Wilder will become one of the belt holders. And not because he can fight. Just because the crooks are going to make a fortune. The K-bros/docs will make room for him, because they will always be kept at "super champions." Wilder will win the "regular"-champ jive. OMFG! The game is so darn full of optical illusions.

I think that the late Primo Canera's coulda kayoed Wilder in a non-fixed bout between stiffs. Holla!

Bernie Campbell says:

Frisco Wilder has no dang Plan B. Whatyou guys trying to pull?

brownsugar says:

I watched that fight several times... Wilder was just carrying the guy hoping to get in 4 or 5 rounds. When I saw Price stick out his lead foot while keeping his knee and leg locked in a straightout position, waving his power hand way out in front of his chest... I was reminded of the many Junior HighSchool Playground fights I watched as a kid during recess.... usually nobody got hurt and it was just a put-on to impress the chicks.... Price is strickly a StreetFighter level boxer who could no doubt intimidate and take apart the local toughs at the neighborhood bar(maybe get hired as the bouncer)... but he has no place fighting on a nationally televised Boxing event of this magnitude.
Wilder may not be ready for Klitschko,.. but he's certainly ready for one of the career jouneymen of the sport... lets see what he can do against Monty Barrett or the recently demoted-in-class Kevin Johnson.... it's time to take a minimal risk.

Now I see why they have been hiding Wilder off TV. I see a Micheal Grant KO title fight loss in Wilders future. The Statue of Liberty moves her head more than Wilder.

Radam G says:

Hehehe! Wow! The Roast must be on comedy roids and PEDs. It just ain't natural to come up with funny stuff like dat. OMFG! I gotta steal dat wise crack: "The Statue of Liberty moves her head more..." Hahaha! Holla!

Radam G says:

The pass-midnight-colored guy was a bit too phony, and extremely racist. So he is going to stay all my ignore list. Wow! The dude's self -esteem is so low that he pretends to be one ethnicity and represents another. He's only fooling himself. This ignore is pretty righteous. Da dark behavior of the devil can literally be sealed out. Merry Christmas to all, I shout. Holla!
