“I’m definitely looking forward to being the next heavyweight champion of the world,” said undefeated prospect Deontay Wilder, who will face ex-beltholder Sergei Liakhovich on Aug. 9 at The Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio, Calif.
The co-manager of Robert Guerrero has expressed extreme confidence heading into Saturday night’s clash with pound-for-pound kind Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Deontay Wilder is 27-0 with 27 knockouts: “I’m trying to delete all of the American heavyweights. I’m trying to get rid of all of them so that I can become just that main one.”
Tyson Fury, who makes his U.S. debut against Steve Cunningham on NBC on April 20, has a personality as big as his 6-foot-9 body, and he’s never at a loss for brash words. “As Jesus Christ is my savior, I am the savior of the heavyweight divison,” he says.
