Deontay Wilder: Big Risk Like This is Exciting To Me

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight banger Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) says a fight with journeyman Jason Gavern is the type of "big risk" that excites him. One wrong move, one punch he forgot to slip, and he loses out on a guaranteed shot at WBC champion Bermane Stiverne in the fall. Wilder-Gavern takes place on Saturday night at the Stubhub Center in Carson, California.

“This fight, to have such a big risk that lies ahead, no matter who the opponent — you've got to remember it can end with one punch, it's over. To take this big risk before a title fight, it's kind of exciting to me,” Wilder told the Tuscaloosa News.

“I don't think it's been hard to focus. If anything, I enjoy my job, I look to whip ass. I enjoy it, that's why I'm always here. Boxing is my job, this is my 9-to-5, what I do. Anything pertaining to boxing, I love it. Having to fight, compete, no matter who it is, I love it.”

Yeah I guess Wilder ran the risk of looking less than spectacular against a mediocre opponent which is what happened. Was he trying to take the fight the distance like he said or was Gavern actually causing some slight problems…

It's big risk. If Gavern clinches and yells in Wilder's ear, Wilder could go deaf.
