Stiverne: Deontay Wilder Can Talk Trash, I Want Him!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KOs) is sitting back and waiting for the finishing touches on his first defense of the crown, which the World Boxing Council ordered against dangerous puncher Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs). No boxer has been able to last more than four rounds with Wilder.

Stiverne captured the vacant title in May after knocking out Chris Arreola in their rematch. The belt became vacant after longtime champion Vital Klitschko walked away from the title to fully focus on his political career.

“I don’t see it as a special fight; I see it as my first title defense,” Stiverne told the Las Vegas Review Journal “But I take every fight seriously. I can fight a tomato can and I’m going to fight just as hard. But for me, it’s not about the money. I want Wilder. He can talk all the trash he wants, but that’s all it is — trash. And we all know where trash belongs.”

Stiverne is from Haiti (I'm half haitian) so I will never bash him but............Deontay puts grown men to sleep. IDK man.

Stiverne isn't the fastest starter and Wilder only has to touch you once to make it count. And he doesn't even have to hit you flush, he just has to hit you it seems. Don't know if Stiverne even in…

I hope their promoters can get together and get this fight done asap.

Firtha rocked Wilder, and considering how absolutely piss poor his opponents have been, I'll pick Stiverne.
