Bermane Stiverne. The WBC's number 1 ranked contender! 15lbs heavier than the last time he fought Wilder. I hope it's a good undercard!

chicken legs plus finely tuned and calibrated windmills = RIP Bermane Stiverne.

I'm pumped for this fight! Go Wilder!

Comment by Ilpo on 11-04-2017

After seeing Joshua in his last fight, I must say that Wilder looks to be in much better shape. I like Joshua, he has better tech, better feet and is more likable as a person it seems. But all that…
