In a recent interview with ES News, former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder made a bold claim that he possesses more knockout power than boxing legend Mike Tyson.

Although Tyson is well-known for his explosive knockouts, Wilder has a perfect record of knocking out every opponent, except Tyson Fury.

Many boxing fans agree that Wilder is currently the most dangerous boxer in terms of knockout power.

Wilder acknowledges the contributions of the old-school fighters and recognizes that they paved the way for the current generation of boxers.

However, he argues that boxing should continue to evolve and that the new generation should surpass the previous one.

Wilder believes that if boxers do not keep evolving, they will become part of the problem that the sport is trying to eliminate.

While Wilder's argument is valid, it is still up for debate as to whether he has more knockout power than Tyson.

Tyson was known for his remarkable 21 first-round knockout wins and 44 of his 50 professional wins coming by knockout.

It is worth noting that Tyson fought in a different era and against a different level of competition than Wilder.

Regardless of who possesses more knockout power, both Wilder and Tyson are among the most explosive and exciting boxers to watch.
