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..

King Wilder, they claim they are sooo disgusted with u now after your "milking" comment......its ONLY because they need an excuse to regurgitate & bring to the surface their coddled nasty racist attitudes......Its expected: now they enjoy hating on you…
