After his team lost the purse bid to his opponents camp, there were some suggestions doing the rounds that Deontay Wilder may vacate his WBC heavyweight title.

People were suggesting that faced with the prospect of taking on Alexander Povetkin on Russian soli might not be in Wilder?s plans.

But the Bronze Bomber is better than that, he?s no quitter and has no intention of handing over, without a fight, the belt he worked so hard to win.

Indeed, you get the impression that Wilder is, in some strange way looking forward to the tussle and is looking to adding to his immaculate record of 36-0 with 35 of those wins coming by way of knockout.

Talking about the ludicrous suggestion he?d rather give the title up than go to Russia, Wilder is quoted as having remarked,

?If you think I?m giving up my title you?re crazy? Y?all forget that I didn?t win this title for me.

?I promised my daughter I would be a champ. This belt belongs to her so I?ll fight whoever and wherever to make sure it stays with her.?

Now that?s the spirit.
