In a surprise move, the WBA has mandated that middleweight titlist Gennady Golovkin face unheralded Jarrod Fletcher as his next challenger.
In Lem Satterfield’s latest notebook, we find out what it will take to convince heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder to step aside in order for newly-crowned WBC titlist Bemane Stiverne to challenge RING champion Wladimir Klitschko.
Undefeated KO machine Deontay Wilder was ringside for Bermane Stiverne’s sixth-round stoppage of Chris Arreola and, as the mandatory challenger to the new WBC titleholder, said he sees nothing to worry about.
There looks to be no shortage of challengers for the vacant WBC heavyweight title, up for grabs in an upcoming rematch between Bermane Stiverne and Chris Arreola. Mike Perez and Bryant Jennings will meet in an elimination bout with the winner setting himself up as a top contender for the organization’s strap.
