Stiverne-Wilder Rematch Is
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL — The WBC championship committee revealed Tuesday
that a rematch between the heavyweights Bermane Stiverne,
from Montréal, and Deontay Wilder, from Tuscaloosa, Alabama,
is a strong possibility. Stiverne is now ranked mandatory
challenger for the champion.
Stiverne (25-2-1) lost his WBC heavyweight championship of
the world January 17th 2015 in the ring of the MGM Grand
Arena in Las Vegas, when Wilder beat him by unanimous
decision. That night, Wilder dominated 10 or 11 rounds.
Since that moment, Stiverne was hoping to get a rematch, and
this rematch could be organized in the months to come.
“It would be a great news if this rematch with Wilder would
become reality,” said Stiverne in Montréal. “I was dreaming
since two years to get a second chance to fight this guy. I
am very impatient to see what the WBC will do in that file,
but I am crossing my fingers in hoping that it will happen.”
Wilder has a perfect record of 38-0-0, and lot of people in
the boxing circles believe he is actually untouchable in the
