Although Bernard ?The Executioner? Hopkins fights this weekend, my eyes will be honed in on one of the chief support fights.

Previously I?ve declared my ambition to see the Klitschko brothers dethroned, suggesting that Deontay Wilder could be the heavyweight America has been waiting for to bring the title back to the USA.

Wilder, who demolished Audley Harrison on a visit to the UK, now has a record of 29-0 with all 29 wins coming by way of knockout and will be taking on a heavyweight who, on paper, has the physique to trouble the younger man.

However, Nicolai Firtha may possess a decent punch but his record shows that something about his attributes is flawed with his record reading 21-10-1 with 8 victories coming by way of knockout.

The fight is scheduled to take place at the Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey and could be another defining fight in the blossoming career of a boxer many feel is destined to be the next American heavyweight great.

I can?t wait for the sound of that first bell, how about you?
