Deontay Wilder ready to unleash the beast on Liakhovich tomorrow night
By Scott Gilfoid: America’s #1 heavyweight Deontay Wilder (28-0, 28 KO’s) will be fighting this Friday night on National television on Showtime against a very tough Sergei Liakhovich (25-5, 16 KO’s) in a fight scheduled for 10 rounds at the Fantasy Springs Casino, in Indio, California, USA.
Deontay is chomping at the bit to tear Liakhovich apart tomorrow night, and he can’t wait to get him in the ring to put on a show for the U.S fans watching the fight on Showtime.
Deontay has been training hard for this fight, and he plans on taking Liakhovich out quickly to register his 29th consecutive knockout as he marches forward towards a title shot and to eclipse the record for consecutive knockouts of 44.
Deontay’s promoter Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions believes that he has the talent to capture a heavyweight world title in the near future, and he plans on matching him against world class opposition to make that happen.
Deontay must get past Liakhovich this Friday to realize his potential, and he’s got to look good in doing so.
Deontay can’t be seen to struggle against Liakhovich, because this is a guy that the top heavyweights in the world are expected to beat without too much struggle.
In an interview with USA Today, Deontay said “The time is ticking down now and as Richard Schaefer said, yes, now is the time to unleash the beast. The beast has been locked up, he’s been chained up, he’s been pulling at that chain trying to break it, but now they can’t contain me no more. So now they’re about to unleash me. Here we go, baby.”
Deontay destroyed his last opponent Audley Harrison in one round last April in fight that many boxing fans mistakenly assumed would be competitive for a few rounds. Deontay never gave Audley a chance, as he brained him immediately with a tremendous overhand right hand right in the opening seconds of the 1st round.
Once Deontay had Audley stunned, he mercifully put him out of his misery with a series of jackhammer blows to the head that put Audley on the canvas. The fight was then halted when a dazed looking Audley got back to his feet.
It’s a good thing the referee stopped the fight when he did, because had he allowed it to continue, Deontay would have separated Audley from his senses with another huge right hand to the head.
