Schaefer: Wilder-Stiverne For WBC Title, Then Klitschko

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer is looking to match Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30KOs) against Bermane Stiverne for the vacant WBC heavyweight title. Based on Vitali's recent announcement that he plans to be a candidate in the presidential elections in 2015, Schaefer believes Vitali will no longer fight and the belt will become vacant. Vitali has been inactive since late 2012. Stiverne (23-1-1, 20KOs) is the mandatory challenger to the title. After the fight with Stiverne, Schaefer wants to match Wilder against WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko.

“Deontay is right up there in the top two or three ratings in the WBC. With the news that we got last week, that Vitali Klitschko is going to be running for president of the Ukraine, I anticipate that he will no longer fight and that the title will become vacant. My goal is to have Deontay fight in his next fight for the WBC heavyweight championship against [Bermane] Stiverne. And after that go for Wladimir Klitschko, unify all the titles and then become the undisputed champion the world. That was the plan, that is the plan and I plan to do everything in my power to get it done,” Schaefer said.

It really does make sense eventually he's gonna fight someone who clocks him good and ends the hype, might as well go for the title if he loses they can chalk it up as an experience thing and build him…

Wilder flattens Stiverne in 4-6. Gets Wlad outta there in 2. And scores a brutally shocking KO1 of Vitali after he comes out of retirement in 2015 to avenge his brothers loss the year prior. (after a failed presidential bid)…
