Question: Why Will Wilder’s Career End Abruptly & Viciously? Answer: Big Mouth, Chicken Legs & Karma

By William Trillo

Just based on Wider’s recent statement I hope his demise is only hours away. On facing Stiverne for the second time Wilder ungraciously spouted out this diddy, “Somebody will die in that ring come November 4, I beat him to an inch of his life the first time. This time, I’ma end his life.”

Considering the near life ending moments we have seen in the ring lately, Daniel Franco & Magomed Abdusalamov come to mind immediately, I find this statement to be distasteful and uncalled for. Based on that statement alone I hope Karma jumps up and bites him on his glass chin tonight and we get a new WBC Heavyweight Champ.

While Wilder is telling us, “All the top guys have ducked me,” and “The only thing people care about is the best fighting the best,” the fact of the matter is the only opponents Wilder has targeted lately were so old and past their prime that they tried to resort to illegal performance enhancing drugs to even the playing field.

Anytime Anthony Joshua’s name comes up Wilder starts on some excuse parade claiming it’s Joshua and his people who are ducking him. Trust me, everyone is well aware of who represents Wilder and knows who is avoiding who, so stop the charade. Heck, Beyonce won’t even fight Joshua Parker…so don’t buy into the line of bull he is trying to sell.

So now we are stuck with Wilder taking on Bermane Stiverne, a fighter he has already beat. Wilder is trying to Smoke and Mirror us by saying, “This is my mandatory opponent. I must face him and that’s just what it is. I’ve called out every name in the sport. All the top guys have ducked me, so I just have to take care of the people that are able to get in the ring.”

Trust me, Wilder’s promoter/manager/advisor Al Haymon has the WBC deep in his pockets and Wilder could have faced anyone in the top ten if he really wanted to, but he chose Stiverne. That fact in and of itself speaks volumes.

In the meantime, Stiverne is the only fighter to go the distance with Wilder and is hoping for redemption in the rematch. Truthfully, the fact that Bermane is coming in almost 15 pounds heavier than the last time the two squared off doesn’t give me a lot of hope. But we saw what Stiverne did to Arreola twice, so maybe a victory for Bermane is not as far-fetched as Team Wilder would like you to believe.

On his chance for revenge Stiverne says, “The stage is set and my destiny is in front of me. I always said I was going to be the first person to beat him, and that is going to come together on Saturday. Deontay is going to be in for a real rude awakening on Saturday. I’m going to let my fists do the talking for me.”

I’d be less than honest if I didn’t say that nothing would please more than to see Stiverne land a flush shot directly Wilder’s chin and then watch Beyonce do the chicken dance before crumbling to the canvas. If Karma comes into play that is exactly what is going to happen.

That being said, hear me loud and clear when I say I’ma not looking to see anyone’s life ended. That would be rude and extremely uncalled for.
