This weekend, Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (29-0 29 KOs) returns to the ring on the Undercard of Bernard Hopkins vs Karo Murat. Wilder will take on journeyman Nicolai Firtha im a stay busy bout; this is a fight he is expected to win, but more importantly will be how he wins. Firtha has lost 3 of his last 5 fights and has lost every time he has stepped up in competition. Anything short of a spectacular knockout would be a huge disappointment for the for the Olympic Bronze Medalist.
Should he get past Firtha this weekend, he future will look very bright going into next year; he has been mentioned as a future opponent for Cristobal “The Nightmare” Arreola, and Bryant Jennings. Both would be great fights, and would be very winnable for the Alabama native.
For those of you who will be tuning in this weekend; make sure not to blink, because this fight could be over quick!
