Deontay Wilder is 36-0 with 35 knockouts. To say he has been a knockout artist, would be an understatement. In Wilder’s mind, Chris Arreola (36-4-1, 31 KOs) is tailor-made for him in this regard.
“When it comes to Deontay Wilder, people look for the knockouts and I deliver,” said Wilder, who will defend his heavyweight world title against Arreola on Saturday from Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Ala. (on Fox). “What separates me from other heavyweights is the fashion in which I knock guys out. I don’t just knock you out, I really put you out.
“Arreola definitely has a style prone to a knockout. He’s a pressure fighter who will come forward all night. That plays to my style. I love pressure fighters who give me a challenge. They keep me moving and thinking. I love the sweet science and the art to it.”
