I cannot see this scrap lasting more than three or four rounds, unless D-Wild get plugged early, then stink out the joint by running like a giraffe. Thus, the elephant-like B-Ware won't be able to catch long legs on the jaw and put him to sleep. Holla!

Skibbz says:

Draw those battle lines Commish.. Wilder is going to taste canvas!

Froggy says:

Stiverne is American ? Living in the States for a couple years doesn't make anybody American to the best of my knowledge but I guess that might put some behinds in the seats to say he is American !

YUP! It is always about the money. If B-Ware had a strong following of -spending-that-money Haitians and Canadian, he would be a Haitian-Canadian.

Don't forget Lennox Lewis was a Jamaican-Canadian as an amateur in fighting in two straight O-Games. But because of the big bucks, he was a Brit in the pros, since he were born there and live there as a bad-arse child. Holla!

Did King get any options or anything considerations on Wilder? If so Wilder wins by early KO.

If not Wilder still might win by KO but BS will test him and box his ears off. If the fight goes past 3 BS by TKO. If Firtha can land as much as he did i expect BS to land much more.

Nope. He tried, though.

And if you check his genealogy, dude is West African, likely 80% Ghanian.

Dude is one big mash-up all around.

Dude is British, Canadian, Jamaican, American (he's got residency, if not citizenship), Ghanian and maybe even a slight bit Ivorian.

Which dude? B-Ware or Lennox Lewis? Holla!

The Commish says:

Apparently, part of the long holdup in the fight was Don King trying to get options on Big D. However, King had to square off with Oscar de la Hoya and Al Haymon, and King got nowhere.

As for the fight itself, We all wonder how Wilder will react when he is tagged by a heavyweight with the power and hand speed of Bermane Stiverne. But, how will Stiverne react when he is tagged by even greater power. Remember, Chris Arreola had him hurt, but couldn't finish him. If Wilder hurts him, go to the bank that he'll finish him.

A new coronation will be taking place in a little over 40 days.

The heavyweight division will be alive again.

Sorry for the confusion, I was referring to Lewis, though Stiverne is obviously West African as well.

The Shadow says:

Randy, after he wins the belt, next year I want to see the big D face of against new heavyweight the The Huge Dong, Taishon Dong. That'll be a fight between two huge pieces of heavyweight meat going toe to toe.

It's got “slobberknocker” written all over it.

There's one of my favorite words, “slobberknocker.” I use it when I talk about fights where there is little defense used, other than blocking punches with your chin. A prime example is George Foreman v Ron Lyle. To me, that is one of heavyweight history's great slobberknockers.

I think Wilder v Dong is a one-sided fight. The “Big Dong” stands just over 7'0″ and weighs around 300 pounds, but he is just 2-0 and not ready to face any top heavyweight. With the way he drops his left, he is an inviting target for Wilder's lethal right–which will, by the way, be the punch which dispatches Bermane Stiverne of five rounds.
