Saul “Canelo” Alvarez believes Deontay Wilder’s inability to “move his head” has cost him dearly against Tyson Fury.
The ‘Bronze Bomber’ was eliminated in the 11e round of a thrilling WBC heavyweight title fight in Las Vegas this past weekend.
For the second time in just 43 fights, the American was defeated in his professional career and he came to the fists of the “Gypsy King”.
Fury, who also stopped Wilder in February 2020, retired from the canvas twice in the fourth round to complete another remarkable comeback to complete their incredible trilogy.
Few can doubt the ‘Bronze Bomber’ heart, yet his technical shortcomings (so often obscured by the power of his right hand) have once again been exposed by the top boxer.
Canelo, who tops the pound-for-pound list, believes those shortcomings are Wilder’s failures.
“Big fight, big fight”, Mexican Canelosaid the Last Stand podcast with Brian Custer.
“I think Wilder needs more condition, more movement. He can’t move his head.
“It’s difficult when you don’t have this condition and you don’t know how to move.
“That’s why Tyson Fury beat him. Tyson Fury is a great fighter.
