In addition to UFC 217, on 5 November, the world martial arts arena also witnessed an equally compelling match in Boxing between Deontay Wilder and Bermance Stiverne.
Deontay Wilder currently owns 38 victories, in particular, 37 out of 37 knockouts. That is a terrible number. Entering the match with Stiverne, Wilder is the one who almost takes over the game.
Many spectators were looking forward to the exciting confrontation between the two fighters, but that did not happen. The first half passed a minute, what happened when Stiverne got a very strong hook. The referee counts for him and continues the match.
Next, Wilder tossed two consecutive left-handed punches and forced Stiverne to completely collapse and the game quickly ended. Another KO win for Wilder, this is KO’s 19th in the first half.
After this match, Deontay Wilder frankly shared the next opponent he wanted to play. No one else, it was Anthony Josua. “Anthony Josua has declared war for a long time,” Wilder said. I know I’m the champion, I’m the best, Josua come here to check. I firmly assert that Josua is my next opponent. A king must fight a king. I want Josua. ”
The battle between Anthony Josua and Deontay Wilder is what the world’s heavyweight Boxing has been waiting for. If that turns out to be true then it’s definitely going to be a Superfight match.
Anthony Joshua says to ‘swallow’ Deontay Wilder
This is the story of manager Eddie Hearn on Sky Sports when asked about the future boxer he is managing Anthony Joshua.
“I was very concerned about Wilder’s weight in the match with Bermane Stiverne and Wilder about 99kg. I sent this information to Joshua. Although I can not elaborate on the answer, it basically means “I will swallow him alive.” You know the difference in body size, Joshua heavier than Wilder 15kg. According to Hearn’s statement, Joshua was confident of his victory over Wilder. Up until this point, Klitschko was the only known fencer Joshua had ever faced
In terms of bodybuilding, Joshua’s weight was 113kg compared to Wilder’s 103kg. Both are known for their fierce punches. Joshua had 20 KO victories, while Wilder had 38 KO victories out of his 39 victories. To put it simply, if two boxers clash, it would be a compelling match.
It can be said that Wilder and Joshua are Boxing’s top boxers at this stage. But veteran punchers like David Haye, Tyson Fury are also finding their way back to glory. The battle between Joshua and Wilder will be an important match for the heavyweight boxing of the younger generation. However, it is unlikely that the match will be very early and it will take time to warm up with other veteran boxers.
