Joining hosts Kenneth Bouhairie and Michael Rosenthal for this week’s episode, which is available now, was WBC Heavyweight World Champion, Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs). “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder puts his title on the line for the ninth time when he steps into the ring against hard-hitting mandatory challenger Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (20-1, 18 KOs) this Saturday, May 18, live on SHOWTIME (9:00p.m. ET/6:00p.m. PT) and presented by Premier Boxing Champions from Barclays Center, the home of BROOKLYN BOXING™.
Regarding Saturday’s showdown versus Breazeale, Wilder said, “He picked the wrong time to mess with me. I cannot wait to showcase my talent to the thousands in attendance and the millions that’ll be watching. This is going to be an amazing card and an amazing show.”
