Deontay Wilder: This Was Fun, I'm Ready For Stiverne!

StubHub Center, Carson, California - Earlier on SHOWTIME EXTREME, undefeated heavyweight knockout sensation and No. 1-ranked WBC contender Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder of Tuscaloosa, Ala., improved to 32-0 with 32 knockouts with a fourth-round TKO over Jason Gavern (25-17-4, 11 KOs), of Orlando, Fla.

Wilder, going four full rounds for the first time, dropped Gavern twice, in the third and in the fourth round. The referee, at the suggestion of Gavern's cornermen, halted matters at the end of the fourth.

"This was fun,'' Wilder said. "I wanted to go some rounds. A lot of people are still asking so many questions to me; I tried to answer some of them today.

"Of course, I could have landed my right hand more in the first couple rounds. He was leaving me openings, but I didn't want to show off everything. I wanted to save that for next time.

"I'm ready for that world title fight. I want the WBC champ Bermane Stiverne next, hopefully in late November.''

Wilder has to stay long range, throw a high volume of punches from angles and crack Stiverne early, drop him in the first or second round. If Stiverne survives the early rounds, he's going to get into his rhythm and…

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;14866700]Thompson yes but im not so sure about Guinn. The guy is shot for years and was never really good to begin with. I doubt he would last more than 4 rounds.[/QUOTE] Guinn has never been stopped,I believe that was…

[QUOTE=Scott9945;14865949][I][B][FONT=Arial]Ideally a bridge to the Stiverne fight would be someone like Dominick Guinn or Tony Thompson. They are past being dangerous but could give Wilder some much needed rounds and a step up in class.[/FONT][/B][/I][/QUOTE] Thompson yes but im not…
