Schaefer: Stiverne-Arreola Winner Has To Fight Wilder

By Edward Chaykovsky

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has now placed undefeated heavyweight puncher Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30KOs) within reach of a world title shot.

Wilder will face his good friend, Malik Scott, in a WBC final eliminator on March 15th in Puerto Rico. The WBC title was vacated by Vitali Klitschko. In the coming months, Bermane Stiverne and Chris Arreola will fight each other in a rematch for the vacant belt.

After the smoke clears, Schaefer plans to push for Wilder to get the Arreola-Stiverne winner in his next fight, provided Wilder comes through with a win next month.

“[The Arreola-Stiverne winner] will have to fight [Wilder] whether they like it or not, they have to,” Schaefer said to the Tuscaloosa News. “We have worked towards this [title shot] and now we are getting there.”

“The winner of this fight here will be the next mandatory for the winner of Arreola-Stiverne. The WBC rules stipulate that when two fighters fight for a vacant title, they will have to do an immediate mandatory and the winner of Deontay Wilder and Malik Scott will be that mandatory."

Dick is practically bending over to the WBC for Wilder to get a title shot. Would lol hard if Wlad steps in and snags the Stiverne-Arreola winner.

[QUOTE=valero;14216422]Chris Arreola has never been knocked out, just pizzafaced by Vitali. After Wilder's right lands, he'll be on the canvas dreaming he's in a hot tub full of Tecate girls.[/QUOTE] :lol1::lol1::rofl::fing02:

[QUOTE=Szef99;14217873]Am I missing something? Has Wilder - Arreola already happened and it was named the fight of the year?[/QUOTE] I guess you missed my point. Those fights never lived up to expectations. I didn't say more than that in that…
