Deontay Wilder has been preparing for his next world title defence and Eric Molina has felt the full force of his punches during sparring sessions.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ is one of the most dangerous punchers on the planet and will seek out a 36th stoppage win when he defends his WBC heavyweight title against Chris Arreola on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

Eric Molina was halted by Wilder in the ninth round when they fought last June, but ‘The Drummer Boy’ was happy to help the champion prepare for Arreola and offered insight into their bruising sparring sessions in his Alabama gym.

What were your first impressions of Wilder’s gym?

It was very tough to train down there, different from down here in Texas. I used to training with an air conditioner and cooler, but in Wilder’s gym, he does train very hard.

He’s got a great team behind him and he loves the sport. You can definitely feel the energy from being around him.

How many rounds did you spar with Wilder?

It just depends. Anything from two to four rounds. Just depends on what type of day he was having.

On my part, I’m not one of those that likes to get too spicy as far as sparring goes. But I can say there were a couple of days where they were harder for him than others. That’s not just for him, that’s anybody in general. Every day is different.

What are his strengths?

It was one full year to the day that I got back in the ring with him. I feel in that year he’s calmer in the ring, more patient. His jab is sharper, his reflexes defensively have got better, his balance is better, and his power has got a bit stronger.

But all around, I feel that he’s improved.?

How hard does he hit?

All heavyweights hit hard, don’t get me wrong, but Wilder has the power naturally to knock anyone out at any given second with one punch.
