Deontay Wilder says he is hoping to put on “a show” with Chris Arreola in their WBC world heavyweight title fight.

Wilder (36-0-KO35) is a big favourite going into the fourth defence of his crown, which will be shown live on Sky Sports on Saturday night, while Arreola is hoping to cash in on an unexpected opportunity.

Wilder was scheduled to fight in Russia against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin in May, but that fight fell through when Povetkin tested positive for the banned substance meldonium.

“We needed a guy that was going to come and fight,” Wilder said ahead of the bout in Alabama. “We needed a guy that wasn’t going to come and make excuses. He may still make excuses at the end talking about weight.

“But we mainly needed a guy that was going to come and give the people of Alabama a show, and worldwide.

“There’s no other guy that we could have had that was going to give me the fight that I was looking for out of a fighter than Chris Arreola. That’s why we chose him.”

Wilder said he needed a quick fight after being down following cancellation of the fight with Povetkin, who has denied any wrongdoing.

“I can’t wait because I’ve been wanting to pound something,” Wilder said. “I’ve been wanting to pound something since May. I got teased a little bit. I don’t like to be teased. I got teased a little bit and now it’s time.”

Arreola (36-4-1-KO31) is a big underdog going into the bout, with some oddsmakers installing Wilder as a 1/30 favourite. Arreola has lost in previous world title shots to Vitali Klitschko and Bermane Stiverne, who Wilder beat to claim the WBC crown in January 2015.

“I told my wife before she got here to make sure she gave $1,000 to one of my cousins to go put at least $1,000 on myself,” Arreola said. “That’s $30,000. I’ll take that all day every day.

“To me, that’s very disrespectful. Extremely disrespectful. Those are almost Buster [Douglas] odds.”

The 6ft 7in Wilder has knocked out every opponent except Stiverne, but his three title defences have all gone at least into the ninth. Wilder is coming off a ninth-round knockout of Artur Szpilka in January.

Arreola hasn’t fought since December, when he won a split decision over Travis Kauffman. It was declared a no contest because Arreola tested positive for marijuana.

Murray open to Eubank Jr war

Last Updated: 15/07/16 2:58pm

Martin Murray is hungry for more big fights

Martin Murray is looking to face Chris Eubank Jr after the British middleweight champion failed to finalise a deal with Gennady Golovkin.

St Helens’ Murray (33-4-1-KO16) was most recently in action on June 25 when he was outpointed by fellow former world title challenger George Groves at super-middleweight.

Although both men billed that clash as a last-chance saloon in terms of world title ambitions, Murray’s desire still seems to be burning brightly enough. Certainly more brightly, he claims, than Eubank Jr’s desire to face Golovkin ever did.

No hurry for Murray

Glenn McCrory believes Eubank Jr should face Murray

He told Sky Sports: “Everyone keeps telling me they’d like to see me in with Eubank Jr and it’s a great fight I’d like to be involved in. I’m putting it out there that I’m ready and available if he wants to fight.

“I said it all along that he wouldn’t fight Golovkin. I said it was a publicity stunt and it turned out that way. It’s quite clever how they’ve done it because they were never going to fight him but they’ve talked the fight up and if and when he does fight him, it’s even bigger now.

Eubank is a very good fighter and he’s improving all the time but someone like myself – an experienced, strong middleweight, he’s not ready for.

Martin Murray

“He won’t fight me either, even though it’s a fight everyone wants to see. He won’t fight me, because if he does then he’ll lose and he’ll never get that Golovkin fight then.

“Barring Golovkin, I’ve said for years that I don’t think there’s anybody out there at middleweight who’d beat me. I think Eubank Jr is a good fight for me but I think it’s one I’d win very comfortably, if I’m honest.

“I rate Eubank Jr. He’s a very good fighter and he’s improving all the time but someone like myself – an experienced, strong middleweight, he’s not ready for in my opinion. He likes standing toe to toe and he likes having a go and I like having a fight so it’d be a great one to watch.?

“I can mix it with the super-middleweights but I feel like I’ve got more advantage at middleweight. I moved up because I found it hard to make but also, I didn’t know where I was going to go. Now there are big fights out there.”

Murray remains the man to have taken WBA Super, WBC and IBF champion Golovkin (35-0-KO32) the furthest, lasting until the 11th round in Monaco in February 2015.

Huck wants Bellew in Britain

Former world champion Marco Huck is hoping to regain a cruiserweight title against new WBC king Tony Bellew.

The Serbian-born German (39-3-1-KO27) equalled Johnny Nelson’s record of 13 consecutive WBO world cruiserweight title defences before a shock 11th-round stoppage defeat to Krzysztof Glowacki in August 2015.

Now, having bounced back with a stoppage defeat of Ola Afolabi, Huck has told World Boxing News: “I would be willing to take on Tony Bellew immediately, I mean why wait until October?

“Fighting in Britain has always been a dream of mine, anyway. But to be honest, I doubt it will happen anytime soon. He knows I would smash him to pieces. He is scared of me and will take easier options to hold on to his belt for a while.

“We did get in touch with them but never heard anything back and I think that pretty much says it all.

“I will return to the ring in August or September. I am ready to go and want to get back to doing what I do best.”

Another of Bellew’s possible future opponents is David Haye, and Huck accepted that a match-up between the two former sparring partners would make a lot of sense.

The 31-year-old added: “Obviously, that would be an interesting fight. Two strong and powerful Brits facing each other is always an exciting fight. It’s one of those fights where I cannot pick either one. I would just enjoy watching the fight.”

Bellew (27-2-1-KO17) claimed the vacant WBC with a thrilling third-round stoppage of Ilunga Makabu at Goodison Park back in May.

Deontay Wilder has vowed to take out the frustration of his postponed world title defence on Chris Arreola when the pair meet in the ring in Birmingham, Alabama at the weekend.

Wilder faces Arreola on Saturday night,? live on? Sky Sports, in the fourth defence of his WBC heavyweight title after a scheduled defence against Alexander Povetkin was called off due to a failed drugs test.

“I’ve wanted to hit somebody since May,” said the undefeated knockout specialist, who boasts a record of 36 wins, with 35 by stoppage.

“Does he deserve the title shot, no he doesn’t,” added Wilder about replacement Arreola, who is attempting to win a world title at the third time of asking.

“But for this situation that we’re in with the short notice, is he the perfect guy? You’re right, he is.”

Arreola (36-4-1-KO31) returns to the ring for the first time this year after his December win over Travis Kauffman was changed to a no decision following a positive test for marijuana.

The 35-year-old battled to a draw against Fred Kassi in his previous fight and beat Curtis Harper 15 months ago in his first bout after losing a title contest to Bermane Stiverne.

“This is my third opportunity,” said Arreola, who was stopped on his stool after 10 rounds by Vitali Klitschko in 2009 in his first title shot. “I can’t let this opportunity slip away.

“I respect Deontay. But once the bell rings, it’s time to go fight and it’s time to get that title. I want that title.”

Wilder agreed a voluntary defence against Arreola in a bid to stay active in his quest to unify the division and to distance himself from the legal fallout that followed the postponement of the Povetkin bout.

Wilder knocked out Polish challenger Artur? Szpilka in his last fight in January.

“This is the longest stretch that I’ve been out of the ring and I’m anxious to get back in and continue my quest to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world,” added Wilder.

“This is another fight in that process.”

Wilder, however, is not planning on taking challenger Arreola for granted.

“When you’re in the hurt business, you have no choice but to stay focused on the test that lies at hand because if you’re not focused, you can get knocked out.”

Bermane Stiverne has criticised Deontay Wilder’s decision not to offer him a rematch.

Wilder won the WBC heavyweight title with a unanimous decision against Stiverne in January 2015 and will put the belt on the line against Chris Arreola on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 3 from 9pm.

Stiverne, the first man to take Wilder the distance, had previously earned the title after twice beating Arreola so believes he should have been picked as the next challenger.

He knows he dodged a bullet when he fought me and now he’s got the title, he’ll just run with it.

Bermane Stiverne

“We all know Deontay doesn’t want it, he isn’t interested,” Stiverne told Sky Sports.

“He knows he dodged a bullet when he fought me and now he’s got the title, he’ll just run with it.

“It’s disappointing to see a champion like Wilder taking these opponents. I’ll make my decision about what’s going to happen once Arreola weighs in. It all depends on the number on his scales.”

Haiti-born Stiverne cited severe dehydration, which later hospitalised him, for the performance against Wilder which led to him losing his world title.

Now fully recovered, the 37-year-old told Sky Sports he has started preparation to possibly fight Anthony Joshua before the end of the year because he rates the IBF champion above Wilder.

“The Wilder fight – I didn’t lose because his skills were better than me,” Stiverne said. “I lost the fight because of my health, that’s the only reason. It was like having a gun loaded but you can’t pull the trigger.

“Deontay is not going to fight any real fighters that will be a threat to him. This is the different between Wilder and Joshua – I think Joshua would take the risk, Deontay would not. That’s two different men we’re talking about.”

Whyte faces Allen in Leeds

Dillian Whyte’s comeback will continue against unbeaten heavyweight Dave Allen on July 30, it has been confirmed.

Doncaster’s Allen (9-0-1-KO6) had previously insisted that he would not accept the opportunity on Josh Warrington’s Leeds undercard – live on Sky Sports – due to a lack of preparation, but appears to have had a change of heart.

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn, who confirmed Kell Brook v Gennady Golovkin on Friday night, tweeted: “After yesterday’s news it looks like everyone wants to fight – Leeds July 30 just got even better – @DillianWhyte v @davidthewhiter1 is on!”

Ten-fight up-and-comer Allen, 24, had previously insisted that three weeks’ notice would hand an unfair advantage to Whyte (17-1-KO14), who has been preparing for a fight on the Leeds bill.

But he tweeted: “3 weeks notice? Chin down bombs away last man standing.

Dave Allen

“Always said if someone gave me a date and a reason to fight them I won’t shy away from anyone @DillianWhyte see you July 30th be ready.”

After Allen previously declined the opportunity due to the short notice, Whyte told Sky Sports last week: “If he doesn’t want to fight me on July 30 then he’s never going to get the chance to fight me.

“I felt sorry for the guy so I offered him the chance to launch his career by getting knocked out by me but the guy is a coward.”

The domestic heavyweight duel will serve as a step up in competition for the Brixton’s Whyte, who is coming back from a shoulder injury sustained in his sole career defeat to Anthony Joshua.

Whyte returned with a knockout win over Ivica Bacurin last month while Allen was last seen beating Jason Gavern in March.

Johnny Nelson knows exactly what fellow Sheffielder Kell Brook is capable of, and believes he can upset the odds against Gennady Golovkin…

Brook to fight Golovkin

Blockbuster bout to be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office

It’s another Amir Khan-Canelo Alvarez shocker, isn’t it? Kell, an unbeaten welterweight world champion, wants to risk it all like Khan did.

People said Kell hadn’t fought anybody then, boom, he’s fighting one of the most ferocious punchers out there. He’s stepped up two weights to do it.

Kell needs a fight that captures his imagination, puts him on fire, and gives him the ‘hunted’ mentality rather than the ‘hunter’ mentality.

Johnny Nelson

Like I said with Khan, this isn’t an impossible task. He has to stick to a game-plan. Kell is, without a doubt, the better technical fighter, Golovkin is clearly the bigger puncher. It’s a hard slog for Kell but it’s a possibility.

Kell is very strong at middleweight, people don’t realise that, and that’s why he’s so successful at welterweight. Probably, this will be a gradual progression for him to step up the weights because he could do that pretty easily.

Gennady Golovkin (left) will give Brook a welcome fear factor, says Nelson

Kell needs a fight that captures his imagination, puts him on fire, and gives him the ‘hunted’ mentality rather than the ‘hunter’ mentality. Therefore, I expect to see something outstanding from Kell.

Without a doubt he has more to gain than to lose. Kell will still have his IBF welterweight title. He loses his undefeated record if he does lose but what could he gain? Go back in history and look at fighters that have stepped up these weight divisions – Thomas Hearns and Sugar Ray Leonard. Kell can punch, Kell can box, Kell can move, Kell is hungry. Anybody that fights Kell will tell you his punches are like a stun gun.

Brook punches harder than people realise, Nelson says

If you compare this to Khan-Canelo, nobody thought Khan would have the punching power to hurt Canelo – he had speed and boxing ability. I believe Kell has the punching power, the speed and the boxing ability.

The people around Kell know he needs somebody that will set him on fire and give him a fear factor. Kell jumped at the opportunity.

If Kell pulls this off, he will be rated pound-for-pound among the best because he will have pulled off a feat that nobody else has done.

Kell Brook will challenge? WBA Super, WBC and IBF world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin on September 10 at London’s 02 Arena, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Josh Warrington and Patrick Hyland look ahead to their featherweight bout

Josh Warrington is steeling himself for a toe-to-toe war with former world title challenger Patrick Hyland on July 30, live on Sky Sports.

WBC International featherweight champion Warrington (23-0-KO4) welcomes Hyland (31-2-KO15) to Leeds just over three months after the Irishman was stopped in two rounds by WBC boss Gary Russell Jr in Connecticut.

Having recently overcome Joel Brunker and Hisashi Amagasa with hard-fought points decisions, Warrington believes he is in for a less tactical fight against Hyland, whose last three bouts have taken place in the US.

Warrington said: “Amagasa and Brunker were tough nights but we got the wins. Patrick has respect for me and I’ve got a lot of respect for him.

“He’s boxed for the world title earlier in the year so he’s been in with the very best and I know that this is a tough examination for me.

“I had to box clever in the last few fights, but I think this one will be toe-to-toe. Patrick doesn’t take a backwards step in his fights and I think that I’ll be able to show on July 30 that I can really dig and I think it’s going to be a great main event and one that I’ll shine in.

“This is a great show – it’s the best we’ve done so far in Leeds. The fans have put their hands in their pockets time and time again to come and see me and I think we’re delivering a brilliant card for them. The card oozes talent from top to bottom and it’s going to be a great night.”

The speed of Russell Jr's punching proved too much for Hyland

Hyland echoed Warrington’s sentiments and said the vociferous support for the home fighter would motivate rather than deter him.

“I’ve got a lot of fans coming over and the atmosphere is going to be electric,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of Josh’s fights and the noise is deafening so I can’t wait to be part of it.

“Gary Russell Jr is the best in the division. He is so, so fast and speed kills in this sport, but this is a different fight. I like how Josh fights and I’ve wanted to get in there with him to test him out and try to take that future world title shot that he’s looking at for myself. I think that we’ll end up standing toe-to-toe and giving the fans a real war.”

Also on the bill is Tyrone Nurse’s British super-lightweight title defence against Tommy Coyle and Dillian Whyte, Ryan Burnett and Gamal Yafai will also be in action.

Carl Frampton knows he will need to up his game to relieve Leo Santa Cruz of the WBA ‘Super’ featherweight title on July 30.

The Northern Irishman (22-0-KO14) travels to New York to take on Mexico’s Santa Cruz (32-0-1-KO18) and is determined to better his debut on American soil, which saw him recover from a first-round knock-down to beat Alejandro Gonzalez Jr in July 2015.

Frampton, 29, told ESPN: “I need to show the American crowd what I’m capable of.

Everything was just too laid back before I fought Gonzalez, I took it for granted a bit.

Carl Frampton

“I’m better than that, I’m a better fighter than I looked in the first round when Gonzalez put me down twice. It was disastrous but I came back and boxed quite well after that and won on points comfortably.

“That was me at 70 percent and I really need to be at my best to beat Santa Cruz because he’s the best fighter I’ve come up against.

“There was a wee bit of a relaxed atmosphere before I fought Gonzalez. I thought it was going to be easy, the heat wasn’t great either and I boxed in the afternoon, so there was less time to recover from making the weight, which I found hard to do.

“The canvas was very soft, like a mattress, but I’ve learned from those mistakes and I won’t let that happen again.

“I’m boxing on the east coast this time so it will be different and I was only out for eight days before the last fight, but I’m going out sooner for this one.

“Everything was just too laid back before I fought Gonzalez, I took it for granted a bit. Being in that mindset didn’t do making the weight any favours.

“I felt like I was constantly dehydrated and I kept gorging on water. Things were wrong but this time we will be out for four weeks before and I’m going into the fight as the underdog and will be doing things different.”

Frampton will be making the step up from super-bantamweight, where he vacated his IBF and WBA world titles in the wake of beating Scott Quigg.

Santa Cruz, meanwhile, previously held world titles at bantamweight and super-bantamweight. He stepped to featherweight in May 2015 and went on to outpoint fellow Mexican Abner Mares to claim the crown he currently holds.
