8. Mike Tyson
Wilder doesn’t feel that past heavyweight champions don’t support today’s class of fighters especially the American champs. He even says Mike Tyson used to hate on him in the beginning but that he loves Mike and has nothing against him. He does say that whenever Mike fought the top guy in the sport “he lost.” He took issue with Tyson comparing Wilder knocking people out to his own 12-year-old son knocking people out (huh?) saying “Now you comparing me to a child… I just took that as some envying type stuff.” That being said, Wilder remembers the time Holyfield once told people that Wilder was going to one day be the heavyweight champion of the world.
