There’s a BIG shift in the boxing world as of late. The rings tremble in wait for giants like Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, Alexander Povetkin and Charles Martin.
All these top heavy weights with (hardly) unblemished records who boast 90 – 100% percent KO rates such as Anthony Joshua [Link] and Deontay Wilder, are hot tickets and exciting to watch.
Considered a new breed of Heavyweight boxing after the long standing reign of the Klitschko brothers – they all seem to have one thing in common, they want to fight each other, and snatch one another’s belts.
One punch KO power wielding, Deontay Wilder is set to fight the Russian pressure, power-puncher Alexander Povetkin. Straight out of his bout, the American Bronze Olympic Medalist, and WBC Champ has his eyes set on Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua and his old friend, and ex-sparring partner David Haye.
While all fighters have their greatest test up to date in front of them, they seem to have the same aims when it comes to fighting one another. After Deontay takes out the Russian, he sets his sights on the Brits.
This is what the ‘Brown Bomber’ had to say:
“I like that ordering… in fact I love that order. At the end of the day I am going for all the belts so I am going to have to go through all of them. And I would live to fight the UK guys – even in the UK”.
“If I have to go through Fury after my Povetkin fight – and I never look past my next fight, I am not that foolish – to get those belts, I would love to fight him next.
“If he wins the [Wladimir Klitschko] rematch, I will get his remaining belts then after that whoever wins out of Charles or Joshua, I’d love to go and fight the winner of that to get that belt too.
“And maybe at the end of that, my first titles defence, maybe it’ll be against David to see if he can still do what he used to do. I’ll put them up for him.”
David Haye is an old friend and last on Wilder’s Brit list
“Fury made a name for himself in America and as a fighter you have to establish yourself there, first and foremost, to be known worldwide,” he said.
“He left his name on America – even all the Latinos know who he is now. And once I’ve got Povetkin out of the way, I am looking forward to fighting him.
“Will we see Klitschko do what we’ve known him to do? He may, he may not. But Father Time might just come up to him and say: come on sit down, you can’t do this forever”.
“And due the fact that Fury beat Klitschko and the fact that we have been promoting this fight for the last four years, I don’t want all that work to go away in vain.
“And I think people want to see me fight Fury. Most definitely.”
Being a part of the new breed of Heavyweight fighters, Wilder expresses his excitement on being a leading role in this new wave of heavyweight giants.
Wilder says he is “proud to be part of the new movement”
“I am looking to make it even bigger and better than it is,” he said. “That’s my goal, especially when I become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.”
“One belt, one face, one name… and that’s Deontay Wilder.”
Ambitions are running high. Can Deontay Wilder make it happen? Will he unite ALL the belts to become the undisputed, unquestionable, undeniable Heavyweight Champion of the world? Or will he crumble under the might of Alexander Povetkin?
