Deontay Wilder: I Will Knock Stiverne Out in One Round!

By Edward Chaykovsky

BoxingScene.com reported a few days ago that discussions were ongoing for the mandatory fight between WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne and undefeated Deontay Wilder. The fight will present the most dangerous opponent of Wilder's career. Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) has been able to stop every single opponent in the early rounds and he expects another early stoppage when he faces Stiverne. He doesn't see Stiverne lasting more than a round.

"I see this fight being an easy fight for me to be honest. The guy, he's got so many things that benefit me. [Stiverne] keeps his head down, I'm a tall fighter. He likes to stay back, of course he likes to counter but my arms are so long, you're going to have to get out of your comfort zone to fight a fighter like me. They say styles make fights, but he's going to definitely have to get out of his style. He's going to have to be more of a pressure fighter which he isn't a pressure fighter … I think it's going benefit me a lot in this fight. He's not going to be able to touch me. I'm going to show people – I'm predicting a first-round knockout," Wilder told the Tuscaloosa News.
