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..

I am sorry to say it but I think the Matrix's best days are now behind him. I could see him losing Saturday night. Most likely by knockout.
