Re: Deontay Wilders next fight...
Fight was made on less than 10 days notice without a big budget -- a keep-busy fight filling out a card late in the process.
Wilder just KO'd a top-100 world opponent in Price, this is just a way for Wilder to stay active while waiting to see when Showtime wants him back on TV. Fight was shopped to a few trial horses and they all turned it down wanting more time and money. Better to take this fight and stay sharp than sit and wait for 3-6 months.
