Deontay Wilder looking to get his 25th consecutive knockout on Saturday night against Damon McCreary
By Scott Gilfoid: The Deontay Wilder (24-0, 24 KO’s) train keeps rolling this Saturday night in an important fight for him against unbeaten Damon McCreary (14-0, 10 KO’s) at The Hanger, in Costa Mesa, California. The fight is scheduled for 10 rounds, but don’t count on it lasting that long. Wilder, who will be looking for his 25th consecutive KO, will very likely blast McCreary out of there by the 2nd round at the latest.
That’s not because this is some kind of sick mismatch because it’s not. Having seen some of McCreary’s fights on video, I think he’s got some legitimate talent and power that could give a lot of fighters problems. It’s just that won’t have much of a chance to use that power in this fight with Wilder unloading on him with his incredibly powerful right hands and left hooks.
Its probably only going to take Wilder one or two really solid right hands to put McCreary down face first on the canvas to be counted out. But it’s still a good fight because McCreary brings a lot of talent to the ring with him. Wilder needs a guy like McCreary to keep progressing because he didn’t have the benefit of a long amateur career like a lot of fighters.
Wilder plans on fighting for a world title by next year. He’s going to be stepping it up in a major way in the near future and will soon be taking on the top contenders to get him ready for one of the Klitschko brothers or Alexander Povekin.
Wilder will be jointing up with Audley Harrison on September 16th to help him get ready for his October 13th fight against British heavyweight champion David Price. Wilder, 6’7″, will be sparring with the 6’6″ southpaw Harrison for three weeks unless Wilder is sent home early, which is possible because sometimes sparring partners are sent packing early if they’re too powerful. Wilder is going to need to take it easy on Harrison because he could end up thrashing him during every sparring session and ruining his confidence ahead of his important fight with Price.
