Wilder To Audley: I Don't See No Man Who Can Stop Me!

In a recent interview with BBC Sport, heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder (27-0, 27KOs), who won an Olympic bronze medal, promised to cripple Audley Harrison, a 2000 Olympic gold medal winner, with a retirement knockout on April 27th in Sheffield. The battle of Olympic medal winners will take place on the Amir Khan vs. Julio Diaz undercard.

"I'm the knockout king and I've got to keep that name going," said Wilder. "So I'm predicting a knockout. If I connect correctly, I can put you into retirement - or a retirement home. He's a guy that has a lot of heart. He falls and he keeps getting back up - I like that in him, the fact that he wants something so badly that he keeps going.

"But I don't think he's going to stop Deontay Wilder from doing what he's got to do. He's on a mission but I'm on a mission, too. I'm the next heavyweight champion of the world, I don't see no man who's going to stop me."

Poor Audley. He should retire after the Wilder fight. The Price KO was brutal, and Wilder might knock him out just as violently. If Audley does somehow pull off a victory, however, this would be a year of huge upsets…

Aight Wilder, don't get ahead of yourself big man. Give Harrison his respect and just go out there and make him respect you.

[QUOTE=Napalm Death;13234179]While I think this before all his fights, I can picture Audley decimating his chin with a pinpoint, laser-guided missile of a left that shortens the life-span of everyone ringside by a decade.[/QUOTE] :lol1: i always get that feeling…

Although I will root for Wilder in every one of his fights, I have the feeling, in the back of my mind, he won't make it to the top. But with that said, I don't think he'll have many problems…
