WBC: Stiverne Must Face Wilder Next, Not Klitschko

By Salvador Rodriguez

According to the President of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Sulaiman, newly crowned WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne must faces his mandatory challenger, Deontay Wilder - and not WBA/IBO/IBF/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko, who wants to face Stiverne next for all the titles.

However, if a deal is reached between Wilder and Klitschko's team, where Wilder is paid money to step aside, then Sulaiman would endorse a Stiverne-Klitschko contest.

But it appears that Wilder's promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, is already moving fast to put together a fight with Stiverne.

"Now the next fight should be between Stiverne and Wilder. [Wilder] is the official challenger. If he decides to step aside, then there could be a deal for Klitschko - but Golden Boy has already expressed their interest in making the fight," Sulaiman said.

Wilder vs Stiverne would be an awesome matchup. If they put this one up on ESPN then no doubt they can get the heavyweight division the much needed added exposure. If Arreola vs Stiverne did well on ESPN, I can…

[QUOTE=Ulver;14552660]If he's got so much power, why couldn't he knock out comparatively little Charlie Zelenoff? He hit CZ harder and more times than he hit Malik Scott. But Charlie kept getting back up and fighting and even landed a couple…

[QUOTE=VG_Addict;14552006]If he beats Stiverne, Wilder should fight more top level opposition. The winner of Povetkin-Charr or Chisora-Fury II would be good opponents for him.[/QUOTE] You'd better hold the celebration re Wilder beating Stiverne. Stiverne is leagues above anyone Wilder has…
