Deontay Wilder: I want all the belts, I’m greedy like that!
A massive clash with the winner of Wladimir Klitschko v Tyson Fury seems on the cards for Deontay Wilder as the American confirmed that he’s going after all the belts in the run up to his first defense of the WBC heavyweight title.
The 29 year-old meets Eric Molina in his home state of Alabama on Saturday night and holds a determination to be the best that could see one of the biggest match-up’s in recent top division history come to fruition in the next twelve months.
“Everybody knows that Deontay Wilder gets the job done. I worked too hard to get here to just give up the belt. I want all the belts, I’m greedy like that,” said Wilder.
“People wanted me to rush my career, even I did at some points, but I’m a man who believes in timing and that there’s a moment when things should happen. We have to wait for our time.
“This is my destiny. Once I had my precious daughter she changed my life forever and she became my motivation to get here. She’s the reason I go hard in the gym, she’s the reason I carry myself the way I do.
“I worked too hard to get to this position. We’re not planning on this being the end.”
Wilder has a perfect 33-0 record which comes with an awesome 97% knockout rate and most of the smart money is heading towards yet another early stoppage for ‘The Bronze Bomber’ against Mexican-American Molina this weekend.
