Wilder Warns: Klitschko Will Have To Face Me To Unify!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight banger Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) has warned that WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko will have to face him in order to unify the entire division. Wilder is the mandatory challenger to WBC champion Bermane Stiverne. Wladimir wants that WBC title, which his older brother Vitali Klitschko vacated earlier this year.

Reportedly there are ongoing discussions for Wilder to face Stiverne in the fall. If Wilder captures the title, which he predicts he will do in a single round, he's ready to unify against Klitschko.

"When I think about things, it’s not all about money for me. I want my name on that belt as well too. I want that glory, I want to say I was the WBC champ and all the heavyweights have had their name on it. All the heavyweights that were somebody had that belt and I wanna say one day that my name is on there too. That is something that no matter what, win, lose or draw, nobody can ever take that away from you," Wilder told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"I think I’m fighting for that, there’s no going through me. It’s a final, Deontay Wilder will be fighting for that belt. A date, we don’t know yet, it’s coming soon, still working on it. If Klitschko wants the belt, he’s gonna have to go through me to unify it. I think people wanna see more of a Deontay Wilder vs. Klitschko than a Stiverne vs. Klitschko."

[QUOTE=Boxing Goat;14635446]So, Malik Scott (ranked like 30th in the world at best) was a better win than Chisora who was ranked top ten when Fury beat him? I don't agree with that one.[/QUOTE] All true, and Scott was also coming…
