America?s next great heavyweight hope is on the verge of getting the opportunity to fight for the WBC heavyweight title.

Deontay Wilder having amassed a professional record that reads 32-0 with all 32 coming by way of knockout, is already the mandatory challenger for the WBC belt held by Bermane Stiverne.

We?re informed that it has been decreed that purse bids, for the fight, are scheduled for 12th September, that?s if the two camps can?t agree on a fight arrangement.

However, the chances of the pair meeting in the ring before the turn of the year depend totally on Stiverne over-coming a hand injury he picked up in his last fight.

However, there are rumblings, from across the pond, the WBC might still give Wilder the chance to fight for the WBC world title by declaring Stiverne as ?the Champion in recess? until he is fit to fight Wilder.

Not the ideal scenario but on the positive side it does give America?s next hope the chance to claim one of the sport?s greatest prizes.
