Lewkowicz Lays Out Terms For Magomed vs. Wilder

By Rick Reeno

Currently, Magomed Abdusalamov (18-0, 18KOs) and Deontay Wilder (29-0, 29KOs) are the knockout kings of the heavyweight division. Magomed has never boxed beyond the fifth round and Wilder's opponents have never lasted more than four.

Both fighters, who are both highly ranked, are going to be in action in the coming weeks. Magomed is ranked at number four under the WBC, with Wilder sitting in the number three position.

On October 26th as part of the Bernard Hopkins-Karo Murat undercard at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, Wilder will face Nicolai Firtha (21-10-1, 8KOs) in a Showtime televised contest. On the other end, Magomed will take part in a high stakes fight against fellow unbeaten Mike Perez (19-0, 12KOs) on the Gennady Golovkin-Curtis Stevens undercard, which HBO will televise on November 2 from The Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden.

If both fighters are victorious, Lewkowicz is interested in making Magomed-Wilder - but only under his terms.

"To tell you the truth, I don't think the fight is going to happen. Magomed is promoted exclusively by Sampson Boxing LLC. Wilder is fighting on Showtime and promoted by Golden Boy. For this fight to happen, Wilder would have to come over to HBO. Second, Sampson Boxing would have to be the lead promoter of the show. And, I'm not even sure if HBO would accept Wilder as an opponent for Magomed," Lewkowicz told BoxingScene.com.

[quote=RichardPerez] Id like to see this to see Magomed retire. Sampson is avoiding the fight and protecting his fighter. Why should he dictate the network and main promotion, for one, wilder is more known, and Wilder has never been knockdown…

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny;13817742]Not that it alters the point but ain't Lewcowicz the spokesman / manager of Maravilla? Perez - Mago is a big step-up for Mago and should give us an idea of where he really stands in the division. Wilder -…
