Bermane Stiverne-Deontay Wilder Looms For November

By Luke Furman

WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KOs) is looking to defend his world title against mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) on a date in November, according to Stiverne's manager Camille Estephan.

There were discussions to face IBO/WBA/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko in a unification showdown, but Estephan told RDS that Klitschko's side was pretty firm on fighting in September and Stiverne was not looking to return until late October or November.

Estephan is hoping Stiverne-Wilder will take place on a date in November, either in Montreal or Las Vegas.

Stiverne captured the vacant crown on May 10th with a knockout victory over Chris Arreola in Los Angeles.

As long as Klitschko doesn't have the belt, i'm happy.

Damn that's far away... By that time the interest of the fight might decrease.
