In the style of Lomachenko: Wilder’s promoter announced the goals of the knockout


36-year-old US heavyweight puncher Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) decided not just to resume his career. His goal – like the lightweight from Ukraine Vasily Lomachenko – is the title of absolute world champion. This was stated by the athlete’s manager Shelley Finkel.

interview age specialist: “He believes that he can take all the belts and become the absolute world champion. This is his goal. He is not the only one. There are much older athletes who believe in themselves or are trying to prove something.”

First, Wilder will have to fight with an even older Robert Helenius from Finland – they will fight this Saturday in Brooklyn (New York, USA) in the semi-finals of the WBC eliminator.

Finkel was asked about the possible defeat of the American: “I don’t even want to think about it. Definitely, it would be a complete failure. Future plans? No negotiations until we win this fight. Moreover, we have many options. We don’t know which one suits us best. What options am I talking about? Previously, even Tyson Fury spoke about the fourth fight, Oleksandr Usyk called the name of Deontay. There is always the possibility that there will be fights with Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz. But first, the whole focus is on the upcoming opponent.”

Wilder said yesterday that he sees himself in the toughest fight in boxing. No, not against Usyk. And he says about this: “Not if, but when.” But the legendary Andre Ward doubts Deontay.
