On Saturday, November 4, 2017, Deontay Wilder made good on his word and knocked the living daylights out of the overweight and outmatched former title holder, Bermane Stiverne.

I’m not here to make fun of Stiverne, but my guy threw four punches and landed ZERO. That’s just ridiculous.

Moving on, the hot topic in the Heavyweight division is a title unification bout between the undefeated American, Wilder, and IBF/WBA/IBO champion, Anthony Joshua of the UK.

Joshua stopped Carlos Takam one week ago in less-than-stellar fashion, but he still seems to be the overwhelming

“It’s only so much I can say—I want to unify. Is he up for the challenge? When I beat him I’m not looking for the second time around because I’m gonna beat him so bad and so brutal the first time is gonna be enough. It’s gonna be like ‘No Mas.’”

Wilder has been going hard on every possible platform calling out Joshua, including immediately after his knockdown win over Stiverne.

Boxing fans can only hold their breath, but it would seem logical that a fight between the two biggest forces in the Heavyweight division gets made in 2018.

But then again this is boxing and logic has nothing to do with it.

 

If Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua square off in 2018, who wins?
