Tonight, Premier Boxing Champions brings to you Deontay Wilder (34-0, 33 KO’s) VS Johann Duhaupus (32-2, 20 KO’s).  This is a voluntary title defense, as Wilder puts up his WBC World Heavyweight title.  Wilder took this defense to stay sharp and busy, as he waits for the winner of Klitschko VS Fury.  He will continue to wait as Wladimir Klitschko suffered a calf injury in training camp that will postpone his fight against Tyson Fury.  The co-feature will be another Heavyweight matchup with Fred Kassi (18-3-1, 10 KO’s) taking on Dominic Breazeale (15-0, 13 KO’s  Here is the breakdown and prediction for Wilder VS Duhaupus:

DEONTAY WILDER

-Record:  34 – 0 – 0, 33 KO’s

-Weight Class:  Heavyweight

-Height:  6′ 7″ (1.80 m)

-Reach:  84″

-Born:  8/22/85 (age 29)

-Notable Fights:

  • Nicolai Firtha  —  Win, KO 4th round (10), 10/26/13.
  • Malik Scott  —  Win, KO 1st round (12), 3/15/14.
  • Bermane Stiverne  —  Win, Unanimous Decision (12), 1/17/15.  (Won WBC Heavyweight title)

Wilder defeated Stiverne for the WBC World Heavyweight title, and went on to defend it successfully against Eric Molina.  Now Wilder takes a voluntary title defense, and will be fighting against Duhaupus.  It remains to be seen how long exactly it will take for Wilder to get the fight against Wladimir Klitschko, until then, it will be another easy win for Wilder.

JOHANN DUHAUPUS

-Record:  32 – 2 – 0, 20 KO’s

-Weight Class:  Heavyweight

-Height:  6′ 5″ (1.80 m)

-Reach:  n/a

-Born:  2/5/81 (age 34)

-Notable Fights:

  • Manuel Charr  —  Win, Majority Decision (10), 10/4/15.

Duhaupus faces his greatest challenge as of yet in his career.  He has not really fought anyone worth mentioning, and gets a huge opportunity here against Wilder.  Duhaupus brings to the table a ver respectable win loss record of 32-2, but he will have to climb a mountain to win this one.

Predictions:

Dominic Breazeale  —  def  —  Fred Kassi  —  via  —  TKO 6th round

Deontay Wilder  —  def  —  Johann Duhaupus  —  via  —  KO 5th round
