The World Boxing Council heavyweight world champion, American Deontay Wilder, defends his crown this Saturday against Chris Arreola, in the main event at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, with the challenger painfully aware this is his third and last chance to win the title.
The fight is presented by DiBella Entertainment and TGB Promotions, and it will be broadcast via FOX Sports. This will be the 4th defense of Wilder´s, which he conquered after defeating Bermane Stiverne in January 2015. The champion says he’s extra motivated to fighting on home turn in Alabama, promising a truly memorable show.
Arreola comes from drawing with Fred Kassi but due to his aggressiveness, strength, and a slice of luck, which he admits he didn’t deserve and MUST justify, he got an unexpected last chance.
