    In part 2 of my “On The Ropes” interview with Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder, I get his views on the sport of boxing, and its two biggest stars, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Wilder shares his views on what he think Mayweather should do next and what he think of the legacy Floyd will leave behind and if he thinks a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight is likely to take place.

    Heavyweight banger Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) has warned that WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko will have to face him in order to unify the entire division. Wilder is the mandatory challenger to WBC champion Bermane Stiverne. Wladimir wants that WBC title, which his older brother Vitali Klitschko vacated earlier this year.

     

    Reportedly there are ongoing discussions for Wilder to face Stiverne in the fall. If Wilder captures the title, which he predicts he will do in a...

    Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31 KO’s) is ready to face WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KO’s) once Stiverne’s promoter Don King contacts Deontay’s manager Al Haymon to start setting up the fight. Deontay likes the fight and he sees himself knocking Stiverne out in the 1st round like he’s done with 18 of his previous 31 opponents. It’s incredible to even think about. A fighter with 18 knockouts in the 1st round...

    Believe it or not, there was once a time when heavyweight fighters ruled the sport of boxing.  In today’s era where the welterweight class has a near-monopoly on the boxing market, such a phenomenon might be difficult to believe, especially for a new generation of young boxing fans that probably can’t name a modern heavyweight fighter not named “Klitschko.”  But listen, my children, and you shall hear / of Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, the...

    (transcribed by Michael Readman) Heavyweight Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder is as close as he has ever been to his shot a world title belt. In a professional career that began in 2008, Wilder has accumulated a record of 31 wins without a loss, and all wins coming by way of stoppage, and is now the #1 ranked contender according to the WBC. While many people still question Wilder’s position and opposition, there is...

    With Bermane Stiverne's win over Chris Arreola for the World Boxing Council heavyweight title on May 10 in Los Angeles, the opponent is set for Deontay Wilder's first crack at a world crown. Stiverne and Arreola fought for the title vacated by Vitali Klitschko, and with Wilder's win over Malik Scott in March, the WBC guaranteed Wilder the first shot at the new champion.

     

    The Tuscaloosa News sat down with Wilder,...

  • Wilder on Stiverne
    2014-05-26T02:26:06.954Z
    Heavyweight Deontay Wilder said that he saw the "same old" Bermane Stiverne from his ringside seat at USC's Galen Center in Los Angeles as Stiverne scored two final round knockdowns on the way to Saturday's sixth-round technical knockout over Chris Arreola for the WBC's belt that was vacated by Vitali Klitschko.  The 35-year-old Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 knockouts) had not been in the ring since last April, when the 33-year-old Arreola (36-4, 31 KOs) suffered a broken nose and was dropped...

    While welterweight Floyd Mayweather Jr. currently reigns as the best "pound for pound" boxer in the world, there was a time when the heavyweights did the heavy lifting for professional boxing.
     
    "Boxing goes the way of the heavyweights," said Hall of Fame promoter Don Chargin. "When Rocky Marciano was fighting, everyone would be talking about it even if they weren't really fight fans. It was the heavyweight championship and that was something special."
     
    Up until the mid-1990s, the...
