Wilder: Once I Unify, Line Up Mandatories - I'll Get To 50-0 Easy!

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) has no doubt in his mind that he will reach a perfect record of 50-0 - matching the undefeated streak of former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather, 40-years-old, retired in August 2017, after winning his 50th fight with a tenth round knockout over Conor McGregor.

Wilder returns to the ring on March 3rd, when he makes a voluntary defense against Cuban puncher Luis Ortiz (28-0, 24 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Wilder is on a mission to unify the entire heavyweight division.

Should he beat Ortiz, he will fall in line to unify with the winner of the four belt unification between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker, who battle for the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles on March 31.

Wilder expects to be the last man standing with all five world titles.

And once that happens, and the mandatory defenses start rolling in, he predicts a smooth ride to reaching 50-0. 

Displaying the confidence he is known for, Wilder explains that there is no doubt in his mind when it comes to the likelihood that he'll unify the entire division and reach 50-0. 

"Once I unify all the titles then line up the mandatories, I'll easily get to 50-0. I'm not a 12-round fighter, and I don't get overtime. I'm a knockout artist. So that being said, I don't take much damage, but I give all the damage. I put people in the hospitals. I put people in stretchers. When you fight me your head is not the same when you leave. When you fight me you're really signing a death warrant," Wilder said.

"I don't focus on what these guys are doing. I don't focus on what their strengths are. I just focus on me. I focus on what I'm capable of doing. I focus on what I'm going to do and when I tell people I'm going to do something, you know I'm going to do it.

"At the end of the day that's what my father taught me. There weren't any contracts back in the day, it was just the shake of a hand. And if you said something and you didn't abide by it, there's consequences to your actions, to your words. To this day, I abide by that. So, if I say I'm going to do something it's guaranteed to be done."

[QUOTE=WBC WBA IBF;18497071]Wow, great point! Makes total sense . . . as long as we ignore all reality. Joshua and Klitschko made a deal in October to fight December 10, 2016. Wilder was recovering from surgery for a torn biceps…

Seen a pic of Fury yesterday at the Groves fight. Man is back to almost one solitary chin. He’s going to piece up this division in due course.
