Evgeny Romanov vs Deontay Wilder:
I think Evgeny Romanov has the best style to defeat Deontay Wilder and fought him, exactly like he should be fought.
(We know styles make fights.) Obviously he also has the perfect body type for that style.
No doubt, when it happened they both still were amateurs and from this time on they may have developed differently, but I still think his fighting style is best suited for the way Deontay Wilder fights, with his long swinging arms. When Deontay Wilder swings like that, he is very "open".
(Russian: Евгений Романов, born 20 July 1985) is a Russian professional boxer, who as an amateur boxer among other achievements won gold at the Junior World Title in 2004 and the Russian Championships 2009 in the heavyweight divisionAt the junior world championships he stopped all his opponents with his vaunted power including Robert Alonso.
On a national level he has the problem that Russian amateur boxing is so talent-laden. At the Russian nationals 2005 (seniors, 90kg) he beat future Olympic gold medallist Rakhim Chakkhiev 36-17 in the semifinal but lost the final to world and European champion Aleksandr Alekseyev. In 2006 he lost the final to World silver medallist Roman Romanchuk, in 2007 he beat Sergey Kalchugin but exited early in the quarters against unknown Musalchi Magomedov. At the Russian nationals 2008 he lost the final to future European and World Champion Egor Mekhontsev 5-19  once again proving he can be outboxed. In absence of Mekhontsev he beat Kalchugin again to win his first Russian Senior Championship in 2009.
