This weekend, the man who bludgeoned his way to the world heavyweight title, defends his belt at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.

Deontay Wilder, who has re-invigorated the heavyweight scene in the US, will be taking on Johann Duhaupas.

Wilder has a record that reads 34-0 with 33 of those wins coming via stoppages, whereas Duhaupus has a record that reads 32-2 with 20 wins coming by knockout.

Most pundits are of the belief that Wilder will blow his challenger away in this latest defence of his belt

Duhaupus enters the ring on the back of a win over Manuel Charr prompting Wilder?s trainer, Jay Deas to remark about the match-up,
?Duhaupas was coming off the biggest win of anybody they gave us.
?Chris Arreola was coming off a draw against an opponent (Fred Kassi in June) he should have won and that lost some of his lustre. He?s [Duhaupas] a foreign guy so there?s some intrigue. He?s always in shape, so it?s a good matchup.?

That remains to be seen, although Wilder did look wide open in his last fight and very catchable for a capable boxer, but our view is that Wilder will end this one around the fifth or sixth round mark.
