LOU DIBELLA, President of DiBella Entertainment
 
"Deontay Wilder put everything aside to face one of the greatest amateur heavyweights in the history of boxing. This fight is happening because Deontay is that good and he's that proud. Deontay is ready to prove that he's the baddest man on the planet.
 
"There is a sensational off-television undercard beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Barclays Center that includes a group of top contenders and prospects. It's really a loaded undercard from top to bottom.
 
"That great undercard includes a woman's title fight involving Alicia Napoleon. Everyone involved in this fight has made an effort to have women's boxing represented on our cards and I'm proud to be able to deliver that for fans.
 
"This will be Deontay's third defense of his title in Brooklyn at Barclays Center. He successfully defended against Artur Szpilka and Bermane Stiverne, with two frightening knockouts. I'm proud to work with Barclays Center and promote boxing in Brooklyn. This is certainly one of the best venues for boxing in the world and certainly a venue that is dedicated to bringing the fans consistently excellent programming inside the arena.
