Deontay Wilder vs. Bermane Stiverne Fight Night

Deontay Wilder vs. Bermane Stiverne Fight Night

Three years after the Alabaman won the title from Stiverne on points to became the first American to capture a piece of the heavyweight championship in almost a decade, he hasn't been taken the distance and the Stiverne who climbed through the ropes on Saturday was hardly the man for such a task.

Undefeated heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder retained his WBC title in his sixth defense with a dominant first-round knockout of mandatory challenger Bermane Stiverne in the main event of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING Saturday night on SHOWTIME from Barclays Center, the home of BROOKLYN BOXING®.

"I'm waiting for this fight for so long, I declare war, accept it-you accept my challenge?"

Ortiz could be almost 40 by the time he contests titles again while England's Tyson Fury is five or six stones overweight and a long way from title contention, despite all his regular promises on social media of winning back the titles in 2018.

"I know I am the best". Listen mate. I know I am the best. "Are you up for the test?"

"A king doesn't chase the peasants". A king takes kings. The world want Joshua, the world want Wilder.

"They have a great thing going over there but they have to come to fight me".

Jared Kushner focus of Mueller questions
White House sources say it was the President alone who made that decision after watching Comey's congressional testimony May 3. He would be among a list of people the investigators would be asking about, the source said.

"No more diving, no more ducking, no more dodging. Make the date, don't wait".

Joshua is coming off an impressive TKO victory himself, stopping Carlos Takam in the 10th round last weekend in Cardiff, Wales.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn would prefer to pitch another of his heavyweights, Dillian Whyte, against Wilder before risking his prize asset Joshua, but Wilder gave that idea short shrift, saying: "A king don't chase a peasant - kings chase kings".

"Stop with this Dillian Whyte s--", DiBella said ESPN.

Both Wilder and Joshua insist they want the fight and it seems likely in 2018, perhaps at London's Wembley Stadium in the summer or Las Vegas later in the year. Nobody has that kind of power.

Wilder may lack a name on his record like Wladimir Klitschko, who Joshua stopped in the 11th round in April.

The American is now 39-0 with 38 knockouts, and he wants to face WBA, IBF and IBO champion Anthony Joshua (20-0) next. The boxing fans deserve it.
