Stiverne's Manager: Wladimir Klitschko is an Easy Fight!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Bermane Stiverne’s manager, Camille Estaphan, views WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko as an easy fight for his boxer. Estaphan's boxer captured the vacant WBC heavyweight crown with a knockout of Chris Arreola earlier this month.

Klitschko now wants to get his hands on Stiverne in order to secure the only title outside of his collection. But Stiverne owes a mandatory defense to dangerous puncher Deontay Wilder and the World Boxing Council has already rejected the idea of Klitschko-Stiverne - unless a deal is made for Wilder to step aside.

“We’re in the driver’s seat,” said Estaphan to the Toronto Sun. "We can do what we want. I believe Wladimir is an easy fight for Bermane. We would like to unify the belts. And if Vitali wants to come out of retirement and do this, we’d do that too.

[QUOTE=PACnPBFsuck;14577571]Don't like Stiverne's peekaboo defense against these long rangy guys, but the dude has good timing, so I won't count him out so easily.[/QUOTE] He does have good timing but counter punching or waiting on that shot wont do it…

[QUOTE=Redd Foxx;14577488]Stiverne doesn't get past Wilder or Wlad, but I'd rather Wlad face Wilder so let Wilder have his mandatory first.[/QUOTE] You idiot wilder is the mandatory challenger for stiverne's WBC belt not klitschko's. You don't know **** about boxing.

Quick payday for stiverne. He gets ktfo inside four and collects a few million.
