What has been said?

Wilder is back to his destructive best, according to his sparring partner, Agron Smakici.

"People are going down, I can tell you that. People are getting hurt," he told talkSPORT.com about Wilder's sparring sessions.

"He is aggressive, he is punching hard, that killer is definitely there... When he punches you it is a different type of power."

Smakici, who has trained with Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua added the Bronze Bomber's power hits differently.

"It is like a flash. I have done sparring with all of the best heavyweights but this is a different kind of danger.

"You have to be really careful in the sparring, his right hand is so dangerous.

"The first time I got in there with him I didn't anticipate how hard he hits. I got caught with two right hands.

"Thank goodness, my hand was up but I'm telling you, you can see nothing but black for a few seconds. I came back but It's crazy power, like nothing I have ever experienced before."
