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.”

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