Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (36-0, 35 KOs) will defend his WBC heavyweight title for the forth time against Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola on Saturday, July 16, 2016, live on Fox. Of those four title defenses, this will be his third defense in his home state of Alabama.
On June 13, 2015, Wilder battled Eric Molina at the Bartow Arena in Birmingham, Alabama. Molina lasted 9 rounds before Wilder ended the fight by knockout.
On September 26, 2015, Wilder faced France's Johann Duhapuas. Duhaupas was a tough opponent and never went down during the fight, however the punishment he took from Wilder's powerful punches was too much. The referee called off the fight in the 11th round awarding Wilder with the TKO victory.
Tune into Fox at 8pm ET / 5pm PT on Saturday, July 16, 2016, to watch Deontay Wilder defend his title live against Chris Arreola!
