DEONTAY WILDER
 
"This is going to be an exciting fight for everyone. It's two dangerous heavyweights. Two guys who fight with their hearts. It's going to be an action-packed fight from beginning to end.
 
"People said Arreola doesn't deserve the shot, but who are they to say things about a man who every time he gets in the ring, fights with his heart.

 
"I feel like this is a special occasion. It's a short notice fight. A lot of guys said they would take it, but used the short notice as an excuse. It takes a lot to put together a fight. But when you can get someone who can make the best of this and put on a great show, it's a job well done.
 
"There's only one name who can make this be what it is. Every time he steps in the ring, he comes to fight. I think we chose the right person.
 
"This is going to be a great fight for boxing fans. I chose to go back home because of all the travel I did preparing for the Povetkin fight. I'm excited to be in my backyard and have the great support behind me. I won't crack under the pressure.

Honestly I belive that Areolla would Ko Joshua or Fury But unfortunately he is in against the real champ here, and it's going to be too much for him
