Wilder: You Need More Than One Plan To Beat Klitschko

Knockout heavyweight sensation Deontay Wilder has earmarked a world title clash with one of the Klitschko brothers early next year before crossing the Atlantic to take care of brash-talking Tyson Fury.

The 'Bronze Bomber', who has sent shockwaves through the heavyweight division after laying out all 29 of his past opponents, returns to the ring this weekend to face Nicolai Firtha on the undercard of Bernard Hopkins' world title defence against Karo Murat in Atlantic City.

The 6ft 7in bruiser from Tuscaloosa, Alabama has his sight firmly fixed on becoming the next heavyweight champion of the world by dethroning the current kings of the division - the Klitschko brothers - who he believes have their vulnerabilities.

"I'm thinking early-to-mid next year [for a world title shot]. We're trying to line it up now. At the moment I'm ranked number 3 by the WBC so we're in planning right now. I'll fight whoever they put in front of me," said Wilder.

"Everybody has weaknesses - the Klitschko's have weaknesses as well too. It's just up to fighters to find them when they're in the ring.

"It's always shorter fighters fighting them - that's one thing I don't understand - but when the shorter fighters are in the ring with them their whole objective is to get in the inside and try and throw overhands. You can't just have one plan when going in with them.

"Deontay Wilder is the next heavyweight champion of the world - the next undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. I feel the heavyweight division will be restored, these things move in cycles."

Nah....what is white blood? Remember, in theory, everyone came from African. Africa has many varieties. You don't have to be mixed to look like that. Black is not homogeneous. There are even blue eyes blond hair people in African who…

[QUOTE=flushuppercut;13875305]Corrie Sanders' plan worked pretty damn good..[/QUOTE] [SIZE="3"] There was no plan, he got lucky and Wlad was still not as good as he became. There is no blueprint there to draw from. I'm glad we cleared that up.[/SIZE]

[QUOTE=$Natedatpkid$;13875113] Wlad pretty much is a one trick poney himself only fighting one way. He keeps his distance with the jab amd clinches you anytime you get close wearing you out with his weight. [/QUOTE] [SIZE="3"]Yeah, but it's one of…
