Bermane Stiverne Brushes Off Deontay Wilder's Warning

By CARLOS ARIAS

LOS ANGELES --- Bermane Stiverne and Chris Arreola meet in a rematch for the vacant WBC heavyweight title on Saturday at USC's Galen Center on ESPN, but undefeated KO artist Deontay Wilder has already been deemed the mandatory challenger for whoever wins.

Wilder has made it known that is ready for either fighter.

"Both of them have put my name in their mouth," Wilder told BoxingScene.com on Tuesday. "Bermane Stiverne has put my name out there with a passion. He's put my name out there with so much passion that I want to hurt him ... it built flames inside me of me to want to fight him too."

Stiverne was made aware of Wilder's fiery comments at Tuesday's open workout.

"I have no comment for that," Stiverne said. "I'm not interested in Wilder or anyone else."

Yes Wilder has scary power, but he also hasn't fought anyone that good and Liakovich was his best win. Stiverne has the tools to outbox Wilder and perhaps even may stop him.

Wilder wants a fight. Stiverne is focused. Hopefully they fight one day.
