WBC heavyweight champion, Bermane "B. Ware" Stiverne (24-1, 21 KOs), isn't bothered with the verbal bombs being launched by his mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs), who is hungry to get his crack at the world title. Discussions are ongoing for a date at the end of the year.
Wilder made some predictions that Stiverne will be an easy fight and a bout he should easily end by knockout in the early rounds - if not the first round.
"I do not care about his comments, he only makes me laugh. Some people have showed me what he says on his social media. For me it's funny, maybe he needs more attention. When the time for being on the ring comes, it is going to be only me and him in it, all the trash talking is not going to help him to receive less punches, I am the champion and I will not let go my belt easily," said Stiverne.
