By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight puncher Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) believes WBC champion Bermane Stiverne is intimidated and attempting to avoid a potential fight between them. Wilder is the mandatory challenger to Stiverne, who capture the vacant belt with a rematch†knockout of Chris Arreola.

Stiverne's promoter preferred a unification with heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko, but the WBC rejected that idea and ordered their champion to face Wilder next - unless an agreement was reached for Wilder to step aside.

"I know heís scared now, I hope he has nightmares about me each and every time. He better be sleeping with that belt up by his pillow because when the fight time comes, Iím gonna take that off him and he ainít gonna have to worry about it no more," Wilder told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"I think itís gonna be a first round fight and itís gonna be a knockout, thatís for certain. No matter how many rounds it goes, itís definitely not going to decision, I promise you that, I can put money on, itís not going to a decision, itís gonna be a knockout and heís gonna get knocked out!"

[QUOTE=Money Shot]Wilder's resume is very poor for a mandatory challenger. Leapai was not good either but at least he beat one ranked guy in an eliminator. Malik Scott was not a serious contender or ranked but he is Wilder's best "win".[/QUOTE] Correct. Leapai became the WBO mandatory when he ...

[QUOTE=LacedUp] He has decent power, he's not a 1 punch KO artist. But he's got sound skills. I'm not taking anything away from him, I just think Wilder will beat him because he only needs to land one or two shots to get the job done - and Stiverne doesn't move his head at all. And yes, the ...

Deontay is a specialfighter. He is the beginning of the American Heavyweight take over. You idiots gain control for a few years and forget that the baddest fighters overwelemly come from the US. The only thing that gave the Kilts chosen their reign was size. Once our big men from the US flood the...
