Meet The Man That's Being Compared To Mike Tyson And His Power Is Terrifying
A documentary has been released about James Wilson, the man who has been dubbed 'The next Mike Tyson' and it's not hard to see why.
While it may be considered a bold claim to compare Wilson to one of the best to ever step in the ring, his raw power is undeniable.
His nickname is 'The Beast' and he's unbeaten in eight fights and has won six of those by knockout.
Check out a clip of him brutally uppercutting an opponent last year.
The 33-year-old signed a deal with Golden Boy Promotions and it seems that a rise to stardom isn't out of the question.
He's also the focus of a new YouTube documentary titled 'Boxing Kings - The Tale Of James Wilson.'
The documentary features footage of 'The Beast' meeting the man he has been compared to, none other than Mike Tyson.
The 53-year-old gives the young fighter some criticisms and points to improve on while showing the he himself still has it
"You need to make the twist," the former world champion says while moving quickly on his feet.
And he repeats this to get on Wilson's right side, mocking some punches to his chest.
He finishes with a left-hand strike that would likely leave Wilson grounded if the duo were in a match.
"Boom, boom, boom," Tyson adds.
"Keep going round and he's got no time to move."
While Wilson is tipped to take the crown from Tyson, it's hard to see anyone ever truly emulating his legendary career.
The 25 minute documentary also features a variety of training footage which shows the raw speed and power that Wilson has when fighting.
The explosive power he has is reminiscent of Tyson but 'Iron Mike' was a pioneer of the 'peek-a-boo' fighting style which also emphasises defence as well as offense.
His footwork was also often admired, showing he was also a very intelligent fighter rather than acting with just power.
Perhaps that is one aspect that Wilson needs to work on if he wants to make it to the pinnacle of boxing.
Although considering he is billed by some as a 'knockout artist', maybe his defence is not something to be concerned about.
