DEONTAY WILDER
 
"When it comes to Deontay Wilder, people look for the knockouts and I deliver. What separates me from other heavyweights is the fashion in which I knock guys out. I don't just knock you out, I really put you out.

"Arreola definitely has a style prone to a knockout. He's a pressure fighter who will come forward all night. That plays to my style. I love pressure fighters who give me a challenge. They keep me moving and thinking. I love the sweet science and the art to it.

"I never look at films of opponents because I want to be surprised and I want to give myself a mental challenge in there. That's what makes this sport so great.

"Birmingham has showed me love from day one. I don't just represent my city; I represent the state. Everywhere is my home. Birmingham understands entertainment and excitement and that's what I'm trying to bring to people here.

"I'm here to defend my title against a very hungry fighter. It's a life-changing event for the man who holds the belt at the end of the night.

"I never look past anybody. But I can look through them. Before I became a champion, I said I wanted to be an active champion. Just like I was active coming up. This has been my longest time away from the ring, so if all goes well on Saturday, I want to be back in the next few months.

"I have an ability to get out of bed and fight. I can do things that regular fighters can't do. I don't do miles of roadwork. I'm blessed with stamina.
 
"This is my gift to give back to my state. Boxing is growing fast here. Me and Jay Deas have always wanted to do this. It warms my heart that we're living our dreams."

In defense of Wilder he should be fighting Povetkin by now...

Luis Ortiz will end this BS if guys like Wilder can be forced to face him.

Chris actually looks in better shape and spirits than when he has a full camp. Hope it's a good fight at least.

Well at least Wilder is fighting someone. Arreola is WAY on the wrong side of prime and he only had two weeks or whatever to prepare for this, but at least it's something. The card though looks pretty well-rounded actually.…
